Gran Canaria

A warm welcome from the Blue Explorers Resorts’ dive team on the island of Gran Canaria!

Our experienced and multi-lingual Blue Explorers dive team is based in Taurito Bay, Gran Canaria. We’ve been welcoming visitors to the warm, life-rich waters of the Atlantic all year round for more than a decade, with around 10,000 international customers each year. 

The Dive Centre – Gran Canaria

Set at the very edge of the beautiful beach in Taurito Bay, located next to the delightful harbour village of Puerto Mogan, you will find the Blue Explorers Dive Centre. This is where your underwater adventure begins!

Many of the dive sites are within a mere few minutes from our dive centre. Some we can simply access via a short walk across the beach and into the warm waters of the bay. Others can be accessed from one of our two dive boats and are just 5 or 10 minutes off-shore. Each boat can take up to 10 divers so it’s ideal for large groups.

The beach is the perfect place to make a whole day of it – bring a picnic or dine in one of the beach-front, restaurants and there’s plenty on offer in the shops of Taurito to keep you entertained on dry land.

Scuba Dive Resort – Gran Canaria

The Blue Explorers’ Resort Puerto de Mogán is set in a picturesque fishing village on the south-west coast of the island, not far from our dive centre in Taurito. It’s just a short walk from the resort to the village harbour with its picturesque, brightly coloured, traditional Canarian architecture and pretty canals and bridges. The resort itself is purposefully small and intimate with 14 one and two bedroomed apartments, all tastefully themed after local dive site. Everyone from families to older people, groups, couples and singles are welcome!
