What an amazing trip and great group of instructors and the owners are such good people - Barbara & Jon. Big thank you to Irma for helping me with my Advanced Open Water certification - her dives were the highlights of my trip! Thank you Kim and Barbara for all the coordination and answering my emails.

Reef Gliders staff were very professional, very safety oriented and accommodating. We had a special request that they fulfilled easily. Each time I have dove with Gliders, I felt like it was all about us as the customers. Very knowledgeable dive staff who know the area well...

I spent 5 days diving with Reef Gliders, doping the 9:00am and 11:30am each day (there was also a 2:00pm dive each day). The shop was well-organized and clean, with a great café attached. All the staff – the management, the guides, the boat captains – were extremely friendly and helpful. The equipment was in good condition and they were... More

Reef Gliders is hands down THE best dive shop in West End. The staff are friendly and accommodating and always take it slow for people who haven't gotten to dive in a while. They point out cool creatures on the dives, and they are absolutely fun to be around. They always remember us by name even though it's always a... More

Had a fantastic time with Reef Gliders, they have excellent staff, gear and boats, and the location is right in the middle of West End! Suzanne was our guide and she did a fantastic job - the dives were catered to our level of experience, the groups were kept small (it was just 3 of us, which was great). We... More

Water was warm and the diving was second to none. I mean WOW! Staff was very friendly, understanding, patient and helpful. Friendly and welcoming locals. Genuine and fitting atmosphere. Very laid back. Very close to local restaurants, shops, stores, and the beach! Can't wait to go back!!
