i can't say enough about the staff at Reef Gliders, they made our dive trips effortless and memorable. I highly recommend Brian as Dive Master! He was constantly pointing out fascinating creatures that most of had overlooked. The C level bar was great as well. I will never dive anywhere else, when I visit the island.

Outstanding week of diving with Reef Gliders. We hadn't been diving in a few years, after a refresher course from one of the dive masters we never looked back. Fantastic service, attention to every detail, experienced/seasoned dive masters that do not rush you through the dives and most importantly - no "cattle car" boats dropping off 20 divers at the...

My wife and I spent a week in West End, and arranged with Reef Gliders to dive. We each signed up for 2 dives a day, 11:30 and 2:30 dives each day. We are both newly certified open water divers, and the divemasters and owners were very patient with our questions, and ensured we were comfortable with the dives we... More

The three took us on nine great dives including my own PADI Deep Dive... More

The dive masters do an awesome job of spotting and pointing out the reef life down to the smallest species. Regardless of your diving experience or ability they make the dives memorable for all. I only had my certification dives prior to diving with Reef Gliders and went on some dives which included dive masters from Australia and everyone had... More

We have visited Roatan about 12 times since 2008 and we always dive with Reef Gliders. The staff is amazing. They treat us like family. It is the most professional and safe dive shop I have encountered. There is a small restaurant/bar attached to the building which makes breakfast/lunch/post dive beer extremely convenient.
