Who we are

Reef Gliders was one of the first Dive Centers established in West End, Roatan, over 20 years ago. Our team consists of instructors from around the globe with a vast amount of experience & skills. Together we speak more than 5 languages and we love to have diversity around the Dive Center.

We are a PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Dive Center that offers fun diving, recreational courses and professional training from Divemaster all the way up to Staff Instructor. We offer a complete experience where our guests dive, learn and enjoy with all of the modern amenities at hand, without compromising the charming, rustic island vibe.

The Glide Tribe community is comprised of divers of all ages and backgrounds: Fun divers who have been loyal to Reef Gliders for years, fun divers who have just discovered us, Instructors and Divemasters who've completed their professional training with us, as well as our recreational course students and alumni from all around the world. We are firm believers in our Dive Center becoming a home away from home to our guests.

Our aim is to offer you a friendly, professional and fun scuba diving experience, ensuring you get the most of your diving trip in Roatan. We never cut corners on safety and are committed to ensuring the fragile marine system surrounding Roatan and the rest of the Bay Islands remains pristine. This expresses our top company values of Safety, Professionalism and Fun.
