With less than 24 hours until my plane took off, my reservation with another boat was canceled due to mechanical issues. After scrambling to adjust, JADS found a spot for me. JP, Rudolph, Sue, Ilia and Jair (sp?) are all true professionals. The dive masters...More

I’m an excellent swimmer but have never dove. I was extremely nervous. J P was incredibly patient. I felt safe and comfortable. The equipment was nice. The view was amazing. I would highly recommend J P and Jad’s. I would do it again!!

Our two families spent two days diving with JADS. Sue and Chrissy were terrific dive masters and guides. The equipment was fine and in good condition. The boat seems older and needs some work.
