Scuba Diving with Bull Sharks in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.

Every year pregnant female bull sharks come to the shallow reefs in front of Playa del Carmen, Mexico, to give birth to their babies.

It is an adventure dive for certified divers who want to feel one of the most thrilling underwater experiences. 

Around the end of November and December, bull sharks arrive in Playa del Carmen to spend their winter vacation.

Although every year is a bit different, sometimes we can see the sharks as late as March before migrating North. 

A shark dive for adventure-seekers to enjoy scuba diving with wild bull sharks in their environment.

An incredible opportunity to take a closer look at these magnificent top predators!

Bull Shark Dives in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.

A bucket list scuba experience in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, and as easy as 1,2,3! Every year many bull sharks come to visit during the winter season.

Between November and February, Playa del Carmen offers the perfect conditions for the bull sharks to visit. Make sure you plan your bull shark dive trip during these months!

The sharks seem to come to Playa attracted by the cool water currents, abundant food supply of fish, and the fresh water that flows out into the sea from cenotes along the coast.

About Shark Dives in Mexico

At Divers UnderGround, we offer shark-sighting dives where you will have the opportunity to share these beautiful animals’ natural habitat.

Sharks are necessary for human survival on the planet, and responsible shark dives help to keep them alive. When divers see sharks up close for the first time, they immediately tend to become involved in shark conservation in one way or another.

Besides bull shark dives in Playa del Carmen, we also love swimming with whale sharks in Contoy island, cavern diving in Cenotes, and Cave Diving in the world’s most comprehensive underground river systems. We also enjoy diving in Cozumel island’s Marine National Park on a comfortable, convenient charter fast boat from Playa del Carmen.
