Bull Shark Dive

Every year, from November through February, a significant population of bull sharks migrate to the waters of Quintana Roo. The males primarily hang out near Cancun, while the females, many of whom are pregnant, come to Playa de Carmen.  Bull sharks are able to survive in both fresh and salt water, and it is believed that the females are attracted to the fresh water streaming from the cenotes into the ocean, hoping to find a nursing ground for their young once they are born.  We are lucky enough to be able to encounter these amazing animals while diving very close to the beach in Playa del Carmen.  We descend straight down onto a sandy bottom at a depth of 80 ft/ 24 m.  Once settled on the bottom you can just relax and enjoy these amazing creatures as the swim around us, and as they are naturally curious they can get quite close.  This dive is definitely well-suited for shark lovers and adventure seekers, and if you are visiting in-season it is not to be missed!
