This was my second time diving with JADS. This time did dives on two separate days. Always a good time and professional. Pick up from hotel and drop off all went great. All my equipment was ready for me on the boat when I arrived. Made me feel really comfortable in the water. Overall a great experience.

I travel to Aruba frequently. Annual trips to other dive destinations as well. JADS is a good as it gets. Family feel without giving up a bit of professionalism. Great for beginners and experienced divers.

Everything was arranged via email in advance including the pickup at the hotel on the day of - so no paperwork needed - just boarded the boat and went diving... More

I inquired about a Discover Scuba course and was offered a two tank dive from the shore. I am obviously not certified. In the past, I have tried scuba in shallow, calm pool water for a few minutes with a free hotel intro included with the hotel. I was asked from JADS to give my credit card details with the... More

It was a great day to dive and the guys with Jads didn't disappoint! Aruba was a stop on our cruise and being a great place to dive we couldn't pass up the opportunity! Very professional and friendly dive master and boat captain they took us to two great dive spots! we will definitely be back.
