Welcome to the John Jack Homepage

The John Jack offers a variety of activities for folks who enjoy being on the water – or under it: fishing trips, cruises, and of course, scuba diving. The John Jack provides a safe, full-service dive platform for divers of all ages and abilities.

We visit dozens of shipwrecks lying off the NJ, NY, and DE coastlines (e.g., Stolt, Algol, Pinta) suitable for recreational divers with advanced open water certification as well as deep shipwrecks (Andrea Doria, U-869) that require advanced technical certification. Some divers sight see; others grab “bugs,” spear fish, or gather scallops or artifacts. For a complete list of the dive trips organized by local dive shops and clubs, consult the schedule on our website. 

More details about these trips can be obtained by calling Captain Rich (201-321-6924) or by visiting the websites of the dive shops and clubs that have reserved the boat.

Patronizing these dive shops, joining a dive club, and diving just once a month enriches and preserves the vitality of northeast wreck diving. We hope you will include the John Jack in your dive plans for 2015.

Have fun and dive safe!
