We recently enjoyed a full day of diving (4 dives) with Susan of the JADS team and really had a fantastic experience! Diving around and inside the plane wreck was probably the highlight of the day! We felt safe on all the dives and appreciated the personalised attention. We highly recommend Susan and the team.

Easy pickup from the hotel to the boat, knowledgeable dive master and good boat handling from the captain. Small group (4 of us) got to do two dives, on two... More

I recently enjoyed 1 day (2 dives) with the JADS team. Everything from the online communication/booking with Susan was a breeze, and the dive day itself was great. This was my first dive in Aruba (but experienced in 10+ other countries)... + The dive site schedule is posted for the week, allowing you to plan your trip and ensure you're... More

Booked 6 days of scuba with JADS. Every day was a new and amazing trip. The dive shop has a shuttle that picked us up every morning and dropped us off every afternoon right in front of our condo building. We had 3 different dive masters over the course of the 6 days which was good because each one was... More

We were recommended Jads because we wanted to do a shore dive to Mangel Halto. When we arrived, Rudolfo gave us different choices of shore dives we could take(Including Mangel Halto). Told us about each site and let us choose the one we wanted to dive. We ended up diving Rocky Beach (North and South - 2 dives). Absolutely great... More

Very nice outfit to go diving with. Professional yet not a cattle boat vibe. Great dive masters, you know who you are. Nice dive sites... reefs are great. Easy exit and entry off the boats. Very easy to book and dive. Picked up and dropped off at the hotel. I'm a happy diver. Thanks jads!

Second visit to Aruba & diving with JADS! Made advanced reservation to dive on a Tuesday and a Saturday. All the paperwork was done in advance by email! Although I was the only customer on Tuesday, Sue directed the boat captain to 2 reef sites that were just gorgeous! Nice drift dives. Both dives almost 60 minutes! Saturday had a... More
