“Great place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

This small but very well run dive center offers great individual consulting & planning. They really take the time to sit down with you and to work out a dive package that meets your needs and expectations. All that in a very friendly and fun way in a family style atmosphere. I even went there every day after diving and we were hanging out with other divers, instructors, guest and friends, had a few beers with chat & laughs.

You will be in good hands here! Thanks and keep up the good work.

“How a Dive Center Should be.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

My Wife and I did 4 days Diving with Karla and her team at Bull Sharks and had a fantastic time. The reason I picked Bull Sharks out of the other dive centers I emailed was because of Karla's friendly and detailed response, with a willingness to tailor a package to my needs. In the end we dived in a group of 2 or 3 plus Charles our very good instructor and guide; diving in a small group is something I'm particularly keen on. The highlight of the diving for me was the trip to the Cenotes, if you haven't done any cavern diving before then I would highly recommend this, it is quite a unique diving experience. All in all a very relaxed and friendly place to go diving. Thank you Karla.

“Great experience and awesome staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013 via mobile

On my first day in Playa Del Carmen I stopped into this dive shop and fell in live with the owner Karla. She is so laid back and friendly it's hard not to get drawn in.

Initially was just looking to do my refresh and a day of diving but ended up doing my Advanced Certificate. Had great one on one training with Karla (and Charles another instructor who took me for my second two dives). Both Instructors are awesome! Had been a few years since my last dive and they both put me at ease.

Will definitely dive there again if I am ever in the area. Thanks Karla for a memorable and fun few days of diving!!

“Good Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

we were in Playa del Carmen in March 20th 2013 and my husband luckily found Bull Sharks so we decided to ask for more information, and was there were our great journey started, Karla gave us the information what we needed to be Padi so we started on next day, my husband was trained with the instructor Sandy very knowledge and professional young lady. My husband is happy to have the Padi certified and was teach the right way. I personally did explore scuba diving and I enjoyed the experience, for being first time for me was perfect. I will strongly recommend Bull Sharks, they make feel safe while diving, listen to your concerns, and the best of all they make you feel you are their family. I will definitely go back to them, if I don’t dive I will go just for visit.
