JADS was a great experience for experienced and non experienced divers! They picked us up from our hotel and we're kind enough to drive by the Lago area to look for the house I grew up in! Yes, I was born and lived in Aruba for 8 years. Thank you for the instruction and 2 tank diving. Even our new... More

We had a blast! Sue and crew took great care of us. Quickly responded to emails and easily booked our trip. We got 4 great dives to include the Antilla. Small groups and each dive lasted around 55 minutes. Lots of green moray eels, turtles, giant blue parrots, and even a baby octopus. We will definitely dive with JADS if... More

I took my son to JADS for the 2 Tank Discover Scuba course. The staff reassured my wife and son that he would be safe and have a good time. My son wanted to scuba but had some questions. After the lesson, he said it was the BEST part of his vacation and wants to take the PADI Open Water... More

We originally were going to use another shop but we dropped by Baby Beach to try out some new gear and rented some tanks and weights. We were so impressed with the service we decided to book with them. Sue and Cristi took such good care of us we will definitely use them again.

My son and I selected JADS for our diving trip in Aruba. We dove Arashee Reef and the Antilla Wreck. Sue, Kristina and Captain Chabito were wonderful. The boat was set up and ready to go when we arrived. Sue was a joy - she brought a lot of levity to the trip. Sue led a private group of 3... More

11 years ago on a previous visit to Aruba I did 4 dives with JADS, and they were great. I even did a night dive - amazing it was. JADS seems to have grown considerably, still under the same ownership, still very friendly, and much expanded. I would have no hesitancy diving with them again.

We had an awesome private dive experience with dive master Eric of JADS. We had a 2 tank session, both shore dives; Mangel Halto and The Wall. Our first experiences shore diving. JADS picked us up at our hotel and drove us to the dive center near baby beach, a great opportunity to see a bit of the island. We... More

Sometimes you write a review on TripAdvisor when you discover something new. Other times, you visit a thoroughly-reviewed place like JADS and your experience is so awesome you feel compelled to pile on and say thanks. Professional, friendly, safe, knowledgeable about the island and its waters, all-around great crew. I dove with Rudolf, Eric and Kimmy - 3 days, 2... More

Excellent dive shop/crew. We dove with a 11 year old and had a private dive master (since she had a 40 ft limit). They were awesome with her. Took great care of us with the boat and shore dives. Rudolph and Mikey were great!

Ok. So I have been diving for 19 years (worked in the industry for a few) and am quite picky about my charter (especially when I bring new people into the sport.) So I figure the great rating about the largest shop can't' possibly be right, but then the hostel on the south end of the island recommends them, then... More
