My wife and I recently visited aruba on our honeymoon. It has been a dream of hers to scuba dive, so I did a lot of research and decided on jads. The staff was extremely professional. We had an instructor named Walter, who walked us through the entire process being that we had never dove before. We could not have... More

I dove with JADS last week and did 4 dives with them over two days. Both days were great dives and a fantastic crew. They were very knowledgeable and safe, helped those with their gear that needed it etc. Our dives were mid island and on the north end, and I liked that each day we were driven to a... More

We had taken a try scuba class at home but didn't have time to take a full dive class before our trip but Jads has a two dive day trip for the non certified diver. My wife had trouble equalizing her ears but Rudolf took his time and helped her out. We had such a great time that I am... More

I recently returned from my 19th trip to Aruba and my sixth year in a row diving with JADS. I took out a dive package so I got in a few days in of great dives. Chicha picks you up promptly at the hotel and if you're diving again, she'll let you know the time of the next pickup. The... More

What a great dive day. The reef and wreck (Antilla) were great. Saw turtles, rays, 'cudas, Morays, and a good size nurse shark. I'm a big fan of the light snack they serve between dives - it was just enough to make it that much more pleasant. Boat was clean and well equipped. Rental gear was in good repair and... More

Awesome day. Very friendly and capable operation. Took a bit longer than expected due to another group on the dive boat, so the crew took us directly back to the cruise ship from the dive boat. Gave us a snack between dives, made the dive and times in between a ton of fun. Loved the shipwreck dive (Antilla).

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. Each member... More

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
