We scheduled a dive trip for myself (advanced diver), 14 year old never scuba and a snorkeler. Mike took us out for a discover scuba experience, had patience and great gear for all of us. We did a 40 foot 25 minute first dive and a 30 foot blue hole dive 2nd dive with incredible fish and reefs. Perfect experience... More

My husband and I had a wonderful experience diving as beginners. Michael was incredibly patient and went out of his way for us. I couldn't say enough good things! He is a great instructor and person. Thank you JADS.

We went to Aruba in March 2015. Once again we made arrangements with JADS to do some boat dives. We have such a great time when we go out with them. They make you feel comfortable,they are helpful,and they don't mind sharing their knowledge and stories of diving with you.They make sure theres water to drink,snacks and juice between dives....

Visited Aruba March, 2015. Very windy in March and April each year. Wasn't aware of that. Had several conversations with JP before arrival to work out a schedule. Very accommodating. Rudolph, Eric and Mikey were the dive masters that were either driving the boat, playing deck hand or actually diving. Changed the schedule up to accommodate all divers. Boat was... More

The Dive Staff is super safe and extremely helpful in all aspects of the dive. We had divers that were not beginners, but not much training, and Advanced Open Water Divers. The two man team of Mike and Kimi were great with all of the divers.

Had some great diving with those guys; friendly, relaxed and professional. Knowledgeable about diving in Aruba and those chocolate cookies are the best... In my humble opinion the way a Caribbean dive center should operate. Regards, Ruud Amsterdam, The Netherlands

My husband and I have had the opportunity to scuba all over the Caribbean, and JADS is by far the best dive operator we have ever dove with! They were so accommodating, from the time we booked with them, to picking us up every day at our hotel, to allowing divers to stay underwater until their air use was maximized,... More

Called these guy's from my hotel room with all my info and experience. However, they wanted me to pay for diving sessions prior to pick up. No can do. I've never liked pre-paid services. If you want my business you have to work for it, and I'm certainly not going to pay a dive operator with my card info before... More

My wife and I had never been scuba diving prior to our visit to Aruba. Prior to arriving I had several email interactions with Jean-Pierre who recommended that we complete the didactic part of the certification course online in order to save us time once we arrived in Aruba. Unfortunately we did not have the time to complete the course... More
