Skinny: Contacted JADS via email and received a prompt response from Susan with clear instructions and docs required prior to our dives. I received clear instructions about the... More

Spent a couple days with JP and the crew? What a great experience it was!! I'm fairly new at diving. Sue did a wonderful job coordinating and informing divers what to expect on each dive. I did my dives with JP who was fun and I felt very safe and comfortable throughout all my dives! The crew was friendly and... More

me and my wife were little bit nervous about diving in Aruba (since it was a shore dive and we have never done a shore dive). I am an decent diver but my wife is more scared at times, but the crew at JADS did a great job in helping her relax and calm down. The basic skill set experience... More

We booked a dive, with JADS. We explained my husbands health issues, and support required to dive they were very accommodating booking us with our own guide so my husband could be supported. On the day of the dive our guide Rudolf suggested we didn't dive due to the medication my husband has to take. He took time to go... More

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
