DIVING WITH BULLSHARKS IN MORE DETAILS

 

We’ll pick you up at the scheduled time in your hotel and head directly to Playa del Carmen. Every day we have 2 morning (8.30 am) and 2 afternoon (12.30 pm) dives. 1st dive is a bullshark dive and the second is the reef dive in Playa del Carmen.
Every year, female bull sharks return to their breeding ground in the shallow waters in front of the coast of Playa del Carmen. The bull sharks are in their natural habitat and WE DO NOT interfere in their ‘normal’ life in any way.
Before we start: Diving with the bull sharks certainly is an unforgettable experience for every diver. In order to take your part in this thrilling adventure, you need to understand your abilities, to stay calm in the water, so you can fully enjoy the life around you. We dive slowly, smoothly, calmly. We are guests at home of the bull shark, so we behave like that. We respect, watch and enjoy these amazing creatures.

Before the dive, our instructors will give you all the information about the behavior of the bull sharks and they will also explain security protocols and make sure that you are having a great time.
