I can’t say enough about the great experience I had diving with Jads. I had 5 days of 2 tank boat dives with Jads May 4th – May 8th. They pick up and drop you off each day at your hotel. Each morning the tanks are set up for you and they changed over the tanks during the service interval.... More

Just completed 3 days of diving with JADS, two days of boat diving and 1 day of shore diving. This was our first trip to Aruba and wasn't sure which dive shop to use, did a lot of research and found JADS on TripAdvisor highly rated. They were not my original choice due to the few extra dollars that they... More

Diving Aruba for the first time, I was expecting a great dive experience. Having been severely disappointed two days earlier with the biggest dive shop on the island, we went looking for a new dive shop and found JADS. WOW! These guys gave us great service and two awesome dives. We dove the The Jane Wreck and The Renaissance Plane... More

My wife and I and our twin twelve year olds recently did a Discover dive with JADS. They were very organized, pick up at the cruise ship on time. The basic instruction course was well done. We had both Sue and Mike as our instructors for the 4 of us. Sue was great with the kids showing them a number... More

This was a second dive trip for my adult son and I. We had a great time diving the airplane wrecks (fave), the Jane Sea Wreck, the Antilla and the reefs. There was loads to see and Sue, our dive master was patient and knowledgeable. This was my first dive trip after certification and it was perfect. Thanks so much... More

Sue, our dive master, was an excellent tour guide. She was able to put out a lot of life. We saw many large eels and an octopus. They ensured the safety of the group and were friendly without being overbearing. They shuttled us to the boat from our hotel and were nice enough to drop us at the marina near... More

Their boat was down when I arrived, but they made arrangements with another dive center to be sure that all of their divers got their boat dives. I started with shore dives with Mike. Not only was he knowledgeable about the diving, but gave me great advice about entertainment and food on the island. He knew the best places to... More

Last year i went with some family that never went diving before and they felt very comfortable and had the best time of their trip. I highly recommend Jads whether your an experienced diver or new you will have the best time. I... More

I dove with JADS for 4 mornings and had a good experience each time. I was picked up at my hotel each morning and on time and also returned back to my hotel. This service, by itself, is a very helpful benefit. On most dives we had 6-8 divers. The most divers we had on the boat were 12 and... More

I have just come back from Aruba, and during my time there I did all of my diving with Jads, and I had a great time! I got my Advanced Certification with Anwar, and he was a very friendly and knowledgable dive master who I enjoyed being with! The 5 dives I did with Jads were amazing, and I highly... More
