I really enjoyed the wreck dives.. Renaissance airplanes, the Antilla, and the variety of sponges on Sponge reef. There was a variety of beautiful fish and turtles. I especially enjoyed seeing a small whale shark off the side of the boat. My dive masters, Amwar(?), Mike, and Rudolf(?) helped adjust my weights and even provided me with a skin, when... More

It was our first time in Aruba. We have been in many places in the Caribbean. We went to an airplane wreck and Sponge Reef (sites ?). Diving there was beautiful. The crew at Jads was professional. The two sites were incredible. The staff made the day great. In addition, they provided transportation to and from Riu Palace.

Diving was great with JADS in Aruba! We had heard that diving wasn't great there but we clearly heard wrong. The staff was very pleasant and professional. We enjoyed great diving with a crew that clearly were diving enthusiasts and knew customer service. A little example: We stepped off the boat for our second dive with camera in hand (Nikon... More

First off, I want to apologize to JADS, I should have written this review much sooner. I was in Aruba for 7 days, I did my advanced open water here. It was everything they told me it would be and more. Susan was awesome and I was the only one that was in the class but that did not stop... More

I would highly recommend diving with JADS. We are experienced divers and had a great time doing 3 days of diving with Mike and Annurd at the end of January 2015. We were staying at the Marriott and Chitcha was there promptly at 8:30am each morning to pick us up. It was a great perk to have transportation provided, along... More

My wife and I did three dives with Jads last week: baby beach, Jade Sea and Airplanes site. The staff was very professional and fun. We are extremely thankful to Jair, Chitcha, and Rodolfo to make us feel right at home. We can't wait to go back to Aruba and dive again with JADS!

I was very excited about the dives I had scheduled in advance of our Christmas vacation in Aruba this year. My son had recently finished all his scuba training and was doing his open water in Aruba to complete his certification. I chose JADS based on reviews here on Trip Advisor. The staff was very friendly and eager to meet... More

JP (Jean Paul) is very helpful and knowledgeable. You can either go on a boat dive with them or just rent equipment to shore dive on your own. Always friendly and willing to help out in any way they can. We will return to Jads on every trip for our dive needs. They're wonderful!!
