BULL SHARK ENCOUNTER  (November to March)
BULL SHARK ENCOUNTER (November to March)

We will be diving with the bull sharks at 80 ft. This is a static dive where you will have to stay in your assigned place. So if you’re up for this high-octane adventure, check it out and join us on this trip of a lifetime!

Bull sharks are very large sharks, they are not shy and do make passes close by the divers. This is a normal behaviour for them, but if you’re not ready for it, it will be an adrenaline rush.

We do use fish to bring the sharks in close, which sometimes causes the sharks to get excited. Their position in the food chain is vital for the health of the ecosystem.

The more we learn about these animals the more we can enjoy and care for them
Bull sharks are one of the most feared ocean predators, even though humans are not part of their diet. Unfortunately, their bad reputation is due to the fact that most of the information found on them comes from sensationalist press. However, diving around these animals is an experience that more and more people want to share!

Actually the bull shark (Carcharhinus Leucas) is an opportunistic species that can grow up to 4 meters in length. This means that it feeds on many types of aquatic animals, specially fish, turtles, marine mammals and even other sharks.

Playa del Carmen is among the best places in the world to dive with bull sharks, the warm water and good visibility allow us to appreciate with great satisfaction the beauty and elegance of these awesome predators in Playa del Carmen between November and March.
