At Scuba Libre our goal is to show all of our dive guests just how beautiful and majestic bull sharks are. Therefore cultivating shark tourism in the region is the best way to protect bull sharks because it makes them valuable to the local communities. Nobody wants to see bull sharks being fished and killed in Playa del Carmen. So join us on one of our daily shark dives and experience the magic for yourself.
What You'll Get
Playa del Carmen is one of the few places in the world where you can dive with the Bull sharks. The best time to see the Carcharhinus leucas (bull sharks) is from November to March, when a number of pregnant females appears around Playa del Carmen before heading off to secret birthing spot to give birth.
The meeting time is at 14.30. Once carried out the paperworks and checked the diving equipment, a detailed briefing of safety and logistic procedures precede the dive.
We'll board few steps from the shop and 5 minutes later we'll be on the site. A quick descent on a 24 mt (72 ft) sandy bottom where all the divers will line up in front of the feeder. There is a line which divers can hold on to if they wish. Once the feeder is in position it usually only takes few minutes before the sharks show up.
A square profile for a 35 minutes dive in which you'll be able to observe the beauty of these animals while they swim around you: it might surprise you to know that bull sharks are actually quite shy.
Diving with Bull sharks in Playa del Carmen means actively participating in the project SAVING OUR SHARKS, which also takes care of its protection by avoiding fishing.
