After researching several dive firms in Aruba, we settled on Jads. Jean-Pierre was very helpful in organising everything via email, including the right schedule, dive sites and equipment.We booked a total of 24 dives (12 each) over a 12 day period that consisted of two, single-tank dives per trip (we are both AOW divers) and snacks are included.

My husband and I went to JADS for our open water certification and were blown away with everything about this place. The location was lovely, a bit of a drive from downtown but totally worth it. It was overlooking Baby Beach; quiet, beautiful and peaceful. The dive center itself was well organized; there was a bar/restaurant right on site too,... More

My husband and I dove with JADS for two days in the beginning of August. We are novice divers and had not been diving in almost a year. JP, Mike and the crew were excellent in making us feel comfortable. Our first dive was to the Arashi Reef & the Antilla ship. Both of the dives were full of sea... More

This was a highlight of our trip to Aruba. Everyone at JADS was very nice. JP made sure our group of six had a private lesson with just us and two instructors. Since we aren't certified divers we did the "Discover" experience and it exceeded my expectations. We had a short classroom session, followed by practice exercises in shallow water.... More

I've done several beginner dives on other islands. JADS came recommended by 2 different people I know. They were right. JP picked us up at our hotel (my daughter came for the ride) and talked to us about diving and the island. When we arrived we were given instruction via a video and then spent significant time learning how to... More

We didn't dive with you guys but stopped by when my goggles broke on our first day of family vacation in Aruba. You were so kind and sold me one of your used goggles and they were way better than my husband's or my son's. I really appreciate your help and you really made my vacation. Thank you!

My daughter and I just did 2 beach dives and 4 boat dives with JADS. Usually 4 or 5 divers to a guide. Great care is given to make sure you are safe and comfortable. I am 67 and I had difficulty getting up the dive ladder. The crew was most helpful. My favorite dive was to the 2 airplane... More

I did some dives before in Aruba but a friend of mine suggested this company. They took me to special dives sites and I did 4 unforgetable dives! I DO recommend the staff and company
