We dove with Reef Gliders during our recent Roatan trip August 30th - September 6th, 2014. We really liked all of the RG staff - from the owners John and Barbara, to the shop manager Rian, to the dive masters and dive masters in training, everyone was super friendly and helpful. Brian was our dive master on the majority of... More

My wife and I dove with Reef Gliders Aug 24 to Aug 29, 13 dives in all. This was our 4th time diving with Reef Gliders. Everything was by the book and extremely well run. Except for our masks, we used the shop's gear which was in good shape with no problems at all. They accomodated me swapping out their... More

I have been to Roatan twice. 2010 and 2013. 2010 was for 3 weeks of fun diving and 2013 for my Rescue Diver Course. Reef Gliders facilitated each trips dive experiences. The shop is professionally equipped and the owners are wonderful. Another indicator of a quality shop is how well my daughter gets along in the space. She loves it.... More

This is the "dream" dive shop that should be a model for all the rest. Excellent staff, professionalism at every level of the operation, safety-oriented and customer-service driven. Did 31 dives in two weeks with dive-masters Brian, Mickey, Kirsty and Syd, and boat captains Barry and Dennis. They took me to incredible dive sites where I saw amazing things, such... More

We got our Advanced Open Water certification, then did 5 fun dives. Our instructors were Riaan (the shop manager) and Kent, and our fun dive master was Brian. Everyone from the shop owners, to...

I loved diving with this dive shop. It was recommended to me by a friend and as an advanced diver it even exceeded my expectations. Very professional shop organizing your diving trips based on your experience level and making sure you don't visit a site twice - unless you want it :-). Diving with Kent was amazing. He's a very...

We did our open water course in Utila and then moved on to Roatan by charter flight (so much better than the ferry!) where we did a couple of fun dives and one night dive with Reef Gliders. The staff were really friendly and really nice, they sorted all our equipment out for us in the correct sizes and showed... More

This dive shop is fantastic! The owners Barbra and John went the extra distance to make sure we were "hooked up", they suggested great restaurants and bars on the island and we love all of them. All the staff was very knowledgeable and just plain fun to be around. The divemasters and instructors were very professional and always greeted us... More
