Had a great experience with JADs. Went to Aruba on a Disney cruise and they picked me up. Did a two tank dive. They were very professional and easy to work with (both the booking and diving). I highly recommend them if you're in Aruba.

The diving was great, the staff was amazing and very professional. Always taking care of the group, they were right on time when they picked from my hotel. I have done 14 dives with Jads, and every dive was great. I recomend 100% Jads.
