About Our Shop
Who we are
Reef Gliders was established in the West End of Roatan over 20 years ago. Our team consists of different cultures and a vast amount of skills & experience combined. Together we speak more than 5 languages and we love to have diversity around the Dive Shop.
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 done 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 primary aim is to offer you a friendly, professional and fun scuba diving service ensuring you get the most of your scuba diving trip in Roatan, without cutting corners on safety and ensuring that 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. We are continuously striving to improve our services to ensure that our customers leave Roatan with fond memories and a desire to come back and dive with us again.
