Full description
Discover the wonderful world of scuba diving in the protected bay of Abades on Tenerife. Be amazed by the variety of fish, and get close up views in the crystal clear water. No previous experience is needed, and with a maximum of 2 persons per instructor, you will get personal attention.

When you arrive at the dive center in Abades in the morning, you will be provided with your new outfits and equipment for the day, including a wetsuit, mask, fins and a snorkel. This material is yours for the entire day, so you can go snorkeling as much as you like from the beach.

You will then get an introduction to an amazing underwater world during a 45-minute guided snorkel tour. See schools of colorful fish just below the surface as you splash about in the refreshing bay.

Break for lunch on your own. There are dozens of nearby restaurants, serving traditional Spanish food, as well as International cuisine.

In the afternoon you will be transported to another world, and experience how it feels to breath underwater. You will also discover what it feels like to be completely weightless, as once you have donned your scuba tank and descended to a maximum depth of 26 feet (8 meters) that is precisely how you will feel.

No previous experience is needed for this dive adventure to explore the beautiful house reef. You will see sleeping octopus, and be followed by schools of inquisitive fish of a huge variety of shapes, colors, and sizes. If you are lucky, you might see a seahorse, or come face to face with a turtle.

Half-day adventures are also available if you are pushed for time, and want to try diving with no snorkeling.

I wanted to do scuba dive as I am.certified diver. I wasn't told to bring along my diving license. Their system could not trace my records. Even though I am a Certified diver. Some problem with their sys. The location dont have alot not interesting fishes ! But overall my friends enjoyed themself for the experiential diving under good guidance

Out of this world as they said its a life time experience.

The company blue explorers went pick us up from the place where we were staying. Once we arrived we were greeted by the staff (divers) then Ron the Diver instructor that took a big role on teaching us step by step how important it was to follow all the safety rules in a fun and relaxed way. We put our suits on and went snorkling with the team they showed us some cool spots to see the corals and fishes, after we took a small break and went back to the sea with the scubba diving equipament. At first i was a bit nervous but Ron not only made us feel safe but made us feel really confident underwater also made me laugh couple times with the sea cucumber and other stuff. Time flew by really fast. At the end of the day they show pictures that they took of you and you can buy them for such a reasonable price it seems nothing. Dont forget they are a group of professionals they risk their life to keep ou safe and have a fantastic time like me and my partner had. Once again thank you all.

My husband and our two daughters aged 13 and 11 and I went snorkeling and then scuba diving with Blue Explorers - and it was fantastic! We have never tried it before, but they all made us feel very safe and were great at explaining everything to us. We saw awesome colorful fish and a stingray. Will definitely recommend Blue Explorers!
