Dove with this group for 4 days and received my AOW. The various instructors and dive guides were all knowledgeable and pleasant. The diving improved later in the week as we did the Antilla, airplane and saw some nice caribbean reefs and critters. Pick ups and drop offs were timely. We did 1 day of shore diving, which was not... More

Our party of 6 divers had some difficulty determining which dive operation to hire for our dive excursions in Aruba. Our dive history has shown that a great guide and boat captain can make the difference between an average trip and a great one. After diving with a competitor operation in the northern hotel district, we were disappointed in our... More

JP worked with my wife and I to figure out how to book a refresher, a dive and take kids along. In the end he offered for us to take a dedicated instructor for a great price and we arranged child care. JP let us borrow two snorkel vests for the kids for the week at no cost, trusting we... More

This was my husband's 5th or 6th year diving with JADS. They never disappoint! He was picked up promptly by the cheery Chichi and did the Jane C dive and another location. Everything ran smoothly and he had an amazing time. We highly recommend JADS and would never go elsewhere!

The owner went out of his way to take me out on Sunday after I explained I had to leave Monday and couldn't join his regular group. He also accomodated my trouble equalizing by loaning me his mask with air connected ear muffs. I'd never seen this piece of gear before. The result was a comfortable and relaxed dive, with... More

My family and I went diving with this company on short notice. This included three PADI certified divers and my 12 year old uncertified daughter. JP and Chapito did an excellent job for us. They outfitted us with equipment, made sure all was a comfortable fit and they ensured we were prepared to make a safe set of dives after... More

We have made a series of dives in 2015 and 2016 with JADS. We have experienced this as very positive. Susan is one of the most enthusiastic and professional dive guides. She pays attention to safety and the beautiful underwater life. The variation in dive sites is very good, you get to see a lot of boat wrecks, aircraft and... More

Highly recommended! Our kids (10, 12, 13 and 14 years old) had their first unforgettable dive experience today with JADS. Such a nice owner. Our kids were very comfortable with Jean Pierre (he also speaks Dutch)and his other instructor Rudolph. They made pictures underwater from the kids in action and mailed them to us! We snorkeled above them when they... More
