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.

I don't dive, but my BF does, so I tagged along on the boat ride and went snorkeling. I saw some amazing stuff just for snorkeling. Like a giant barracuda!!! Thank goodness the boat captain was in the water with me. He showed me around some cool spots and I saw some amazing fish. I would love to come back... More

We did six dives with Reef Gliders this year--this was after a great experience last year. They deliver outstanding customer service, very knowledgeable dive masters, great equipment, and an unbeatable location. The entire team shows great care for your experience, has a great interest in preserving the reef, and is very family friendly. We had a 13 year old girl... More

There are so many dive shops and at the end of the day, one might assume there's little difference when PADI backs them all. Say HELLO to Reef Gliders. With a bar and kitchen on-site, breakfast before a dive is made easy...and a cold beer at the end of your day can't be beat. Add to this the fact that... More
