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

The owners were more than accommodating and helpful. The instructors were fun but respected safety of divers. Great experience! Would dive with them every time.

The owners Barbara and John would schedule whatever dive sites we wanted to go to. Lots of fish, turtles, and coral. Their dive masters were awesome and made our visit seem like we were visiting family.

The dive shop treats you like a human being, a valued member of the dive group. The boats are small, which is what I prefer and they are perfectly suited for the short rides to the dive sites. The Dive Masters are great at making every diver, regardless of skill level, feel as though he or she is an important... More

Did a Dozen Dives over 4 weeks, and got our advanced certification with Patric, our instructor. They have small groups and concierge service, so all gear was ready prior to the dives, etc.. The owners will also arrange other excursions on the island.
