In August my wife and I had the great pleasure of diving for the second time with Reef Gliders. We were so impressed with the owner /operators Barbara and John, and their dive staff after our first visit, that diving with them on our return was a given. This time we decided to get our advanced certification and again their... More

Went here for 10 dives and ended up doing 14. All dives were amazing and the dive masters, owners and DMTs were all awesome. Stayed next door at sunset apartments which had the perfect location, great a/c and the best commute to the five shop. Lookout for peas, they are really cute! Next time I'm in Roatan, will definitely dive... More

I am a first time diver and had an amazing experience here. I came planning to do my open water certification and loved it so much that I also did my advanced diver certification. Suzanne was my instructor and most of my time with her was one-on-one which was unexpected and awesome. She is so positive and a great instructor,... More

Reef Gliders was directly across from the hotel we stayed at (Sea Breeze Inn). The staff at Reef Gliders was so understanding when we missed our initial scheduled dive on the day we arrived due to logistical issues. They didn't make us pay, even though we certainly inconvenienced them. They have very reasonably priced dives for all levels, and they... More

I needed a refresher course as I hadn't dove in years and they gave a great refresher. You literally walk with your gear to the waters edge and get right in. Demi was our instructor and was very friendly and kept everyone safe and comfortable. Had a beer right there at the bar afterwards. Was so fun!

I was just Open Water certified in May this year and Roatan was my first ocean dive. Reef Gliders did an amazing job. The dive masters knew that I wasn't very experienced and did a great job of making me feel at ease. They were very attentive and kept checking on those of us who were new to diving. I... More

Reef Gliders is a great place to do your diving. Top of the list is of course the staff. I can’t say enough about them. Over the week of diving, I think I had them all. They are very knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful staff. It is evident that the staff likes the place where they work. Of course that has... More

This is my 5th year diving with Reef Gliders and still love them. Everyone there is great from the owners, to the dive masters, to the boat captains.

While being the only diver on a family vacation cut me down to 3 dives over my week vacation, Reef Gliders more than made up for quantity with quality. I can't say enough about the knowledge and personal staff. I started my three morning dives with Marty's Place and ended with my deep dive certification at the El Aguila wreck.... More
