General information about diving with Bullsharks
Bull Sharks (Carcharhinus leucas) live in shallow, warm water in every ocean. They are quick and agile and not selective when it comes to eating. They hunt turtles, fish and even other sharks.
The animals reach a total length of about 7ft and weigh about 240 lbs. They keep fertilized eggs inside the uterus of the female shark for 10-11 months and birth 1-13 young sharks. The baby sharks are left alone after birth to survive in the ocean.
It is possible to dive completely safely near the bull sharks.There was never a bull shark attack on a snorkel or scuba diver in or near by the Yucatan peninsula!
Diving with bull sharks is a thrill and education at the same time. Those of us who dive regularly with bull sharks respect and admire these amazing animals.It is a privilege and a very special experience to dive with the bull sharks.

The season is short (November to January). Take advantage of it.
The habitat of the animals is diminishing by the continually growing population of humans. Therefore, we want to meet the animals as naturally as possible.
We will meet at 7:45 am in the morning for a detailed dive & safety briefing. We will discuss how to best dive with these animals and what their behavior will be
After a short drive we will get to the famous Bull shark point where there is a large sandy area with a slightly sloping depth of 33-135 ft. The perfect dive depth is 65-75 ft. The pregnant bull shark females feel most comfortable at this place. We do not feed the animals to protect the Bull sharks and to maintain their natural behavior.
After a free descent to our depth we just kneel on the sand, cross our arms and slow down our breath. We can watch the gentle giants from a distance of 15-18 ft. The animals are initially interested in what is happening in their area but soon after they lose their interest, and this is clearly noticeable.
NITROX is included on this dive for longer dive time for any divers who are certified to use enriched air. So you will fully enjoy the diving with Bullsharks
