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

Just finished my third year diving with JADS Dive Shop. This year I did five boats trips with JADS or ten tank dives. Again my experience with JP, Mike, Anwar and Rudolph was very safe and professional. If you are diving on Aruba and want great diving JADS is the shop to book your diving at. Those individuals treat everyone... More

My husband and I are on our honeymoon in Aruba and definitely wanted a day of diving for our trip. We had a wonderful experience with JADS. The staff was extremely accommodating and friendly. Josh and Anwar took us on two shore dives (Baby beach and rocky beach). We highly recommend these two dive instructors. We saw trigger fish, moray... More

JP came well recommended by a fellow Canadian who originally certified me and my sons with PADI - and he did not disappoint. JP arranged two days of diving for myself and 12 yr old son that really showcased to me how varied, enjoyable and entertaining diving in Aruba can be. We started with a "refresher" dive at Mango Halto... More

By far, our diving experience with Jads was the best we've ever had. We were picked up from our hotel by their van, and returned after the dive so we didn't need our own transportation. We did 2 shore dives on the south end of the island with dive instructor, Anwar. He was patient with us as we were a... More

This was my first time to dive with JADS. It won’t be my last. We had a good five days of diving visiting the various wrecks and reefs. We arranged for hotel pickup each day – on time and friendly. Nice chance to meet some of the day’s divers before getting to the boat. Nice mix of divers from USA,... More

I booked 2 days of diving and a night dive with JADS for my group of very novice friends. Mike and the other staff were impressively patient as they reviewed key skills and safety reminders to ensure our group was comfortable and had a positive experience. With their excellent guidance, we had a great time and we appreciated that Mike,... More
