If you love sharks and adrenaline, diving with bull sharks in Playa del Carmen is the perfect adventure for you.
Every year, during the winter months (November – March), pregnant bull sharks migrate to Playa del Carmen. The Caribbean waters of Mexico create the perfect environment to raise their babies. They live not only in the seawater but also in the freshwater, which means they can be found in rivers or even in lakes.
Once you descend to the sandy bottom of the sea (around 24m), you will have a chance to admire these beautiful creatures and observing their daily rituals. Bull sharks will swim around you as they are naturally curious so they can get quite close. It´s one of a kind, thrilled and fantastic experience.
Diving with the bull sharks must be done in a controlled and safe way. For this reason, Pro Dive International´s instructors provide maximum safety and fun to the divers.
The following is required to dive with bull sharks in Playa del Carmen;
