We spent a week diving with Reef Gliders and were quite pleased with the entire staff and friendly owners. Highly recommended for the small group dive experience.

I have not been diving for a while and wandered into their shop, felt at ease after meeting the staff and enjoyed all of my dives there. The atmosphere was energetic, fun and professional with safety being number one. The bathrooms and change rooms were clean, there were even lockers with locks supplied by Gliders. There is also a good... More

I moseyed into reef gliders, while checking out different West End shops to do my open water in and I liked it immediately. Right on the water, reef gliders has a sense of privacy and calm away from the Main Street. After chatting one of the owners, Barbara, and her hooking me up with free accommodation for the duration of... More

In 2015 I visited Roatan, Honduras three times for dive vacations. The island is beautiful, the temperature was always perfect and the under water visibility is unbelievable. During my vacations I enjoyed the hospitality of several dive shops and enjoyed diving with a variety of Dive Masters. On more than one occasion in 2015 I visited Reef Gliders located on... More

In addition Mickey is one of the best dive guides I have ever had. The guy has a knack for finding things that everyone else will pass right by. I... More

Before going to Roatan, I knew I wanted to take advantage of the world-class diving that I kept hearing about. I sent a number of inquiries out to various dive shops, but Reef Gliders made was absolutely the most helpful. As a new diver, I had a million questions and they managed to answer every single one of them and... More

Reef Gliders is a dive shop in West End that has been taking divers into the Marine Park for years. The shop has fantastic equipment and the staff are professional and supportive.

All the staff was amazing friendly,helpful,polite and just all around a great bunch! The diving was awesome and Mickey made sure we did not do the same dives over as well as pointing out things I may have over looked. I am an instructor and have many many dives and I highly recommend them. Mahalo and Aloha Scott
