Dive with Bull Sharks in Playa del Carmen

There is nothing more impressive than Bull shark diving in their natural habitat. Dive takes place in the amazing blue ocean full of Bull sharks on this unforgettable diving experience.
This is a scuba dive you will never forget!

Between Mid November through early March every year Female bull sharks reach Playa del Carmen shallow waters.
We organize bate and nonbate encounters to show you the way we interact with this great species, with these amazing Female Bull Sharks.


The dive is as follow

We organize this amazing trip extremely safely, with a good number and very professional dive staff.

Octavio and Antonio are the best feeders, they work with us for many years,  in a great partnership with us, and a few of the local dive stores, we are just 5 dive companies doing the feeding.

From 9 years back from now, we run and organize the Bull shark feeding and nonfeeding in Playa del Carmen.
Now all the different Bull shark tours providers are organized in nonfeeders and feeders. So we set up times according to our season role every year. The days and times in the area are divided on feeders (attraction like us) and non-feeders (observation).

SOS (Saving Our Sharks) No profit association without lucrative purposes is doing a great job, and in a partnership with us divide dives on attraction and observation. We pay a bracelet to them.
