I've reviewed several other dive shops on Tripadvisor and I really like these guys. First of all, the shop was a real dive shop not a spot catering to non-divers. They had great rental gear and knew how to make sure the gear fit properly. My party and I booked a private trip for a shore dive. We are all... More

I came back to dive with JADS after getting certified with them two years prior. They are well organized and have a friendly and professional staff that make the trip a fun experience. They will pick you up from the hotel and are very punctual. It is a bit of a ride away from the hotel area but they are... More

I did my open water certification down in Aruba and was worried that I wouldn't get to experience a real dive. I almost signed up for a class in Michigan so I could do a real dive down in Aruba and I'm really happy I didn't. Mike my dive instructor was great, super nice guy, very knowledgeable, patient, and accommodating.... More

I contacted this company after lots of reasearch in order to plan my dives in Aruba and have the best possible experience; the Director Manager of the company was giving me vague answer and every time increasing the price. He gave me 4 prices (eveyone more expensive than the day before and way more expensive than the prices on the... More

JADS came highly recommended by my dive center in Venezuela. Upon communicating with the dive center, it was an easy decision and one I am very thankful for. We signed up for two tanks per day for five days. Unfortunately, on one day the wind and surf did not cooperate. However Rudolpho helped us find two shoree dives that we... More

We did four dives with JADS and all went very well. Their dive masters Eric, Mike, and Rudolph(?) were very attentive and helpful. They take care of everything. Plus, they have a real dive boat! This was important to us because our last dive trip turned out to be a skiff operated by a 12 year old kid on a... More

We are certified and carried our friend for a dsd. Rodolfo had all the patience in the world to make her comfortable in and under the water. We dive regular with jads and they dedicate time to the divers making sure they get their money and more worth. But seeing how much they dedicate to dsd surprised me. It was... More

JADS personnel are the most professional, polite, respectful, and customer-focused I have ever dived with anywhere in the world. I dive on vacation only once in awhile and not necessarily every 12 months, but JADS simply went through the pre dive checks with me and there was no rushing or arrogance which is sometimes the case with other dive operators...

Diving with JADS was great. Everyone was very friendly and a good time was had by all. Groups are small which is very nice. The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. Would only dive with JADS any time we're on Aruba!

JADS was awesome. We went on a boat dive and a shore dive with them. Everyone is extremely nice and helpful. Would definitely dive with them again!
