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!!

My daughter and I dove with JADS two days. Day one was a shore dive. We loved it and it was a great experience for us. We recently got certified so it was a perfect gateway. We dove in two separate areas and Anwar was our divemaster, he was terrific. We saw beautiful fish along a two reefs and checked... More

From the moment you sign on to the last step off of the boat, JAD's treats you well. Diving in Aruba is not the best in the world, lots of wrecks to check out and some reef but the visibility is not great. There a lots of little things growing in this eco-rich water which is good for the fish... More

This dive shop is pretty good. They have a very relaxed approach and were very nice welcoming people. We did 4 dives with them and were very pleased. They pick you up at your place and take you to the boat dock where your tanks and everything are already loaded and your gear is all set up for you. The... More

My friend and I were nervous Nelly non certified divers. Non certs are not a welcome bunch on aruba, you generally get pushed to snuba or snorkel.... The JADS crew (mike, jp, anwar) were so kind, so patient, so nice and so safe....they were worth the higher price of other locations. Anwar was the absolute best. We had a lovely... More
