We visited Reef Gliders for the first time in January and I can honestly say we were blown away with the service and hospitality John and Barb showed us. Captain Ernie got us safely to the best dive sites on the island and Patric effortlessly showed some amazing critters. While on the island we took the Lionfish Course and went... More

This dive place could not have been more accommodating. All staff were highly attentive. Barb and John (owners) were always there to help in any way they could. After dives, reservations, recommendations, and just downright the friendliest people you want to meet. Patric, our dive master, was super. He knew all the best places to find aquatic life (down to... More

My wife and I just completed our PADI open water dive training and certification with ReefGliders under the direction of Patric. I can say that Patric is one of the best in his profession. Complete attention to detail and instruction are his strong points. If a PADI Dive certification with confidence in your abilities are important to then trust the... More

I wanted to get my open water certification, fast, and Marie at Reef Gliders made it happen. I knocked out my confined water training in 2.5 hours, which included my many panic attacks (they went away during that time). Marie was a great help in getting me past my initial fears, and kept myself and the group safe, even in... More

Our experience at Reef Gliders was nothing but spectacular. Barb assisted us with our bookings and gave great recommendations for where to stay and offered options near by with the dive packages. We stayed right next door to Reef Gliders and it was perfect. Between dives we had ample time to go back to our room or get something to... More

We had a fantastic experience with Reef Gliders. Ten dives in four days - all gorgeous and fun. The atmosphere at the shop was relaxed and friendly and they saw to our every need. Brian was the perfect instructor for my daughter, who is a new diver, as he provided gentle feedback and instructions. We loved every minute of it!

John and Barbara and the whole Reef Gliders crew could not be any better to dive with. The Boat Captains know the reef as well as the Dive Masters and both do everything they can to make sure YOU have a great dive.
