This is the extreme scuba diving experience for certified divers who want to experience the most thrilling dive in the world. In November the bull sharks visit us to spend the winter here and they stay until March when they migrate north. This is a dive program that not only introduces adventure seeking divers to wild sharks but also gives them a closer look at these magnificent and mysterious creatures.
It is an incredible feeling. The first encounter under water with these animals is everything; Outstanding, breathtaking, fantastic, unforgettable. To see these amazing animals in the open nature is truly something special.
This year promises to be the best! The Bull Shark season 2015-2016 is attracting extreme adventure lovers from all over the world and we are the proud hosts here at The Akumal Dive Shop.
