    Anyone here dive with JADS or SEAruba Fly 'n Dive ?

    I KNOW many many people like them. When we approached Unique about a resort course/discover scuba for dd, not once but twice, they were, let's just say, less than helpful. Had a bad experience where our safety was in jeapordy a few years back, and though they are now owned by Unique, don't feel joyful about giving them our hard earned $$$.

    We had a good experience with Aruba Watesports for dd's discover scuba, but they are a really small operation and dh does not like the inflatables they use.

    Thanks everyone for your info. My family and I are going to Aruba for the first time in July and I already have my Open Water Certificate but didn't know who or where to go about diving when I am there. I can't wait now

    just came back

    We just returned from a week in Aruba. We dove just about every day with Unique. We had a great time. Our boats were not overcrowded and safety was never an issue. We did have one humorous moment with a new divemaster, but it worked out well. The staff in the shop was more than helpful when I needed some equipment repair, even calling other shops to see if they had what I needed.
