John and Barb consistently hire well skilled and interesting instructors who are not only great at their jobs, but thoughtful and accommodating people. Additionally there are several exceptionally experienced dive instructors with hundreds and... More

My boyfriend and I spent an entire month diving with Reef Gliders team, during the high season. They really managed to give us professional and personified service. We also liked the fact that we were always diving in small groups (max 5-6 person per instructor). And the two boat captains really know what they're doing. Finaly, the great strength of... More

Thank you so much for your review. We really enjoyed having the two of you diving with us and look forward to your next trip. We are currently in process of changing out old equipment with new. Being a dive shop that is something you have to do quite often due to how many times a day we dive. More

We did 10 dives with Reef Gliders and enjoyed it very much. Everyone there is very friendly and we had lots of fun with our dive guides. The dive shop is well organised and they made sure we did not repeat a dive site. It was great!

Without reservation Reef Gliders gets my vote for the best dive shop operaton in Roatan. Their West End location puts them within minutes of dozens of great dive sites. Combine that with fantastic "turn key" service and great dive staff and you've got a recipe for a memorable dive experience. Diving with Reef Gliders is like having family on on... More
