Blue Explorers Dive Center

Welcome to the sun!

Blue Explorers team welcomes you to Taurito Bay, where our year-round dive center is located! Right next to the beautiful harbour of Mogan on the south-eastern coast of Gran Canaria, Taurito is a sheltered bay perfect as a starting point for our snorkeling and diving excursions!
 
You will find us right on the beach front! Our center is made of a shop, classroom area, covered terrace, wet space for the equipment, lockers and showers area. Right next to the base on the beach front you will find numerous restaurants and snack bars, as well as small tourist shops. The beach is a great place to spend the day, which means the non-divers amongst you will also have fun! Our center is opened year-round, and we are lucky to have possibly the best climate you can wish for: virtualy no rain, warm winters (average of 25 º C) and not too hot summers! So, no matter what season you decide to come and dive with us, you will have a great time!

Our multilingual team (check us out HERE!!!) will make sure you have the best dive time of your life.

Our fully equipped semi-rigid boat carries up to 15 divers, we use it on a daily basis to reach the dive spots, most of which are at a 5 to 10 minutes drive from the base. It is equiped with a comfort ladder, which makes it easier to acces the boat from the water.
