I am new to diving. I finished my PADI OWC course with JADS in Aruba. Before selecting JADS, I read the various reviews and checked out a few dive centers. By far, I know I made the right decision! I highly recommend them for new divers and anyone that has physical limitations. They were very helpful and accommodating. The person... More

Just finished two days of diving with these guys. Both days were great. The boat leaves from the marina behind the airport so you spend 10 - 15 minutes max to get to good dive sites. Guides were fun and professional. Aruba's reefs aren't in the best shape but this year, saw a lot of fish. The airplane wrecks are... More

This is the second time I've gone diving with JADS and it was still one of the best operations in town. The staff are incredibly friendly and do a great job of showing you the local underwater sites. They also pair groups up by skill level so you're not constantly waiting on someone. They will send pairs up to the... More

Jads was truly the most enjoyable dive outfitter we have ever dove with. We saw lots of large fish, turtles, and eels. Sue and Rudolph were truly a pleasure to dive with and their comic banter made our surface intervals pure entertainment. Sue was exceptional at pointing out sea life. They took care of everything. Even rinsed our gear between... More

We are new divers and we had our daughters along for the trip as well. JADS is professional, safety-minded and make sure you enjoy the trip. Our dives were a mix of novices and seasoned divers -- all enjoyed the trip. A fellow diver on the first dive had weight problems that kept some of us from seeing the sunken... More

The staff was knowledgeable and worked with us (2 young divers) within our comfort zone. Felt very comfortable with our instructor, Rudolph, and had a fun day of diving!

JADS conducted my first dive ever (after my buddy and I PADI certified in the U.S. in preparation for this trip to Aruba.) Since my certification experience in the U.S. had a few dicey moments, I was fearful as to whether I could do a real scuba dive...and in a foreign country at that! Susan and the rest of the... More

Always professional with safe and very friendly service. I keep returning to JADS whenever I'm in Aruba. Also a great shore dive right out the back door of the shop.

We used Jads and Susan to schedule a custom night dive for 2 of us and were not disappointed. Great service and very knowledgeable. Susan was also our divemaster for a 2 tank morning dive. Total group size on the boat was 7, and it was very easy to schedule via email and was reasonable priced. Would definitely use them... More
