“Great Dive Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Three of us just got back from 3 days diving with Jads Dive Center. They do a very good job. Good boat and crew. And, Sue is an excellent dive master. Seven divers one day and five the other two. While Jads is in a real out of the way place on the south end of Aruba, they pick you up at your hotel and take you to the dive boat which is docked near the airport or near the north hotels. Diving on north sites not so good but south sites were good with some interesting drift dives and better visibility. Aruba does not have the big fish you see in Cozumel but it is good diving nonetheless. Jads goes out of their way to give you the best experience. Bring your own equipment. Their daily rate on equipment rental is expensive.

“Fun, efficient and safe group to dive with!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

We had the pleasure of diving for 4 days with Susan and Rudolph (and Anwar, for the first 2 days) last week when we were in Aruba. We were staying a ways from their dock, but they arranged with the owner of our Vila to pick us up and take us back. The boat and dive site briefings were thorough and the boat was well equipped for divers. We had a great time on every dive - it is nice diving with dive masters who are as much into the dive as we are :)
We would definitely book with them again if we are back in Aruba.

“Great Dive at JADS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Was in Aruba last week and wanted to do something different. Saw a Sea Scooter Dive at JADS and gave it a shot. It turned out to be a great experience. Dive Instructor Rudolph U. is a great guide and person! I strongly recommend JADS and will go back next time I visit Aruba.

“Very helpful and reasonably priced!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

JP was very helpful when we went to look at snorkel gear for a family member. He was busy and yet took all the time we needed to fit the gear, answer questions and explain equipment. We ended up buying several pieces of equipment and would definitely return. We had been to other dive shops on Aruba and felt like they were overpriced & not friendly..JADS is the place to go!

“Top Notch Dive Center”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

We have been diving for 20 years and the crew and staff at JADS defintiely rate as one of the best we have dived with. Their staff are courteous and extremely experienced. Their service was top notch, very helpful and the crew a blast to hang out with. Loved the size of their dive boat. The shore night dive we did was incredible. Getting to help with lion fish hunting added a new dimension to our diving. The service of picking us up at our hotel each day was priceless and they were always punctual. We would highly recommend this dive shop to anyone visiting Aruba. We'll definitely go back and dive with them again. The Sweets from Colorado
