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. Due to our dive centre’s popularity 2018 will see our flagship Blue Explorer Resort opening, enabling us to extend and improve our customers’ overall holiday experience above and beyond diving, to where your every need – in and out of the water – is expertly catered for.

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 dive centre incorporates a classroom area, covered terrace, wet space for the equipment, lockers and showers area and a shop where you can buy snacks, cold drinks, Blue Explorers merchandise and quality dive equipment.

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.
