Bull Shark Dives in Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Scuba diving this close to a bull shark in Mexico is an extraordinary experience.

Shark diving is, for many divers, a bucket list scuba experience. Still, shark diving in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, is affordable. Here in Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, in Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula, you can dive with many bull sharks during the season.

Why should you come for Bull Shark Dives in Mexico?

If you’ve been following our Divers UnderGround’s Instagram and Facebook accounts, you know how much we love scuba diving in Mexico. Besides bull shark dives in Playa del Carmen, we also love swimming with whale sharks by Contoy island, cavern diving in Cenotes, and cave diving in the world’s most comprehensive underground river systems. Furthermore, we dive in Cozumel island marine national park reefs on a comfortable charter boat from Playa del Carmen.

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

Bull sharks like to stay in deep, cold waters along the coast. 

They are here between November and February, so make sure you plan your bull shark dive trip during these months.

About Shark Dives in Mexico

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

Sharks are worth way more alive than dead, and shark ecotourism helps to keeps them alive. Whenever divers get to see sharks up close, they become involved with shark conservation.

The best thing you can do if you want to keep these memories for a life time is to hire a professional photographer like our friend Robert Stansfield. Contact Robert’s Instagram here @bobtec. He would love to come on your dive and get the best shots of you and your friends and family during your Bull Shark dives in Playa del Carmen.
