Welcome at Blue Explorers Resort on the island of Tenerife!

Our Tenerife dive centre is based in the picturesque village of Abades with the abundant waters of the Atlantic just a stroll across the beach and into the calm, pool-like waters of Abades Bay, a marine reserve offering pristine diving conditions. Our team members are all multi-lingual and highly skilled to ensure that whether you’re an experienced diver, or if it’s your first time, you are in safe hands.


The Blue Explorers Dive centre in Tenerife is set right at the sea’s edge in the picturesque Canarian village and bay of Abades. The centre is comprised of a shop, a fully equipped classroom, an equipment room and a spacious changing room with lockers, toilets and shower. Our multiple dives sites are just minutes from the dive centre; some can be reached by simply walking into the calm, pool-like waters of the bay and swimming a few metres out, others we access by a short mini-van ride to nearby beaches or sometimes by boat.

Abades village square is right next to the dive centre and has all you would expect from a typical Canarian village, with restaurant’s serving local and international dishes and supermarkets for those looking to picnic on the beautiful natural beach.

If you’re not staying in Abades we can arrange for our Blue Explorers, air-conditioned minibus to pick you up from your hotel or apartment and return you with a huge smile on your face after the diving has finished.  If you’re coming to see us independently Abades is located 5 minutes away from the highway to Santa Cruz (25 minutes north, or the touristic south is 25 minutes south). If you don’t have a rental car there is a regular bus connection in both directions.

From the calm and beautiful bay of Abades – a marine reserve since 2011 -  you’ll visit an underwater world filled with reefs, caves and pools where you can swim with rays, angelsharks, moray eels, shrimps, nudibranch and even sea horses – the warm Atlantic waters around Tenerife are teeming with life.


Tenerife has long been visited by divers looking to dive all year round. With reefs, the wreck of Tabaiba as well as caves and pools there is plenty to see, and with Abades Bay itself a marine reserve you will experience a huge range of species in both flora and fauna this pristine and protected dive environment supports. As Tenerife is a volcanic island expect unique underwater volcanic rock formations to add a dramatic backdrop to your dives on the island.
