The family was heading down to Aruba for a week and my daughter decided she wanted to get certified (i'm happy as now I have a dive buddy!!). We did our eLearning and pool in the States and was giving JADS as a recommended dive shop to use. An email on our situation and a few exchanges with JP, and... More

Had a great time diving with JP. He was very accommodating as it was our first time diving and we were both nervous. My gf did a much better job then myself, but I was able to get down to the ship wreck which is exactly what I wanted to see. Jads is a very professional, safe and customer friendly... More

While walking the beach at the Famous Baby Beach we found this little gem. My wife and I decided to go check out the JADS dive Center and found the perfect little bar. I am sorry we are not divers but the drinks were top shelve drinks and wonderfully made, our bartender was very particular about the ingredients and the... More

We completed our Open Water Diver certification with JADS Dive Center in Aruba. Our instructor was Rudolf and we had a great time with him while completing the requirements for certification. He was a very knowledgeable instructor and made sure that we were comfortable with each skill before moving on to the next skill. We were able to do the... More

I dove with Mike as dive master and Chavito at the helm of the boat, great guys and very helpful and knowledgeable. We had strong currents throughout the dive and choppy seas but still had a cool time. I didn't realize that Aruba's high season is around November and not July so the water was a little cooler so I... More

Got my Padi open water diver certification here and had a great time learning and exploring. Rudolph was our instructor and he was funny and very experienced. I felt super safe and had a lot of fun. Everyone at JADS was friendly and very experienced!

Wow what an experience. JADS was great. This was my first Ocean dive. Our Dive Master was understanding that I was a little uneasy but made me feel comfortable. All my jitters went away once we reached the wreck and reef. Diving might be my new favorite thing to do!

We were just getting introduced to the world of snorkeling and diving….the folks at JADS were extremely patient and friendly and answered all of our questions. Snorkeling gear rental is a steal here at $6 an hour. Planning to return here next year when we're dive-certified!

This is a first class operation. From JP to Sue and Kimmy. They will take care of everything u need. Sue will guide you and even give you a lesson in marine science. Ask her to sign the difference between a sting ray and a manta. Lol. Great place. Will be back!!!!!

Contacted JADS via e mail several months prior to our booked trip. One of the owners, Jean Pierre replied. When it came time to schedule the 7 days of dives my husband wanted, Jean Pierre or anyone else from JADS, never replied after several repeated attempts. When we got to the island my husband called and just went on 2... More
