“Good Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

We had a wonderful dive at Playa del Carmen. Carla the owner is super freindly with a never ending smile :)
More generaly, all the staff is really nice and super pro. We had a dive with Géraldine who is also a Cenote expert guide!

Strongly recommended on all aspects.

My sister and I had a very good time with Bull Sharks Diving. Karla, the owner, and also David an Aurelien, dive guides, are professional and very nice. We booked several dives in the sea and also in the Cenotes. We would come back anytime! Thank you Karla, David and Aurelien! All the best to you! Lucia and Regula

“very bad experience”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

We hesitated enormously about writing a negative evaluation. Especially when others have written so positively about Bull Sharks Diving. But when it comes to safety, we feel that our experience is relevant for others. We are rescue divers, with experience all over the world. We dove with Karla, the owner of Bull Shark Diving Centre. Karla showed to be unable to be a save dive guide. She took us, against all our pleas, to a strong drift location. She didn't pay any attention to us, as a group. She didn't recognize any of the bad experience we felt, and just looked after herself. She fully ignored our request to end the dive, which is unforgivable. The dive was save because of our own capability. As we didn't want to do a second dive, she left us unattended in the small boat, with a storm hitting us, with no consideration at all.

We are sure that the very 'happy' extrovert personality of Karla atracts and suites unexperienced divers. But for all reasons of professional diving, we cannot recommend her for any diver.

“Great experience!!! Right choice!)))”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

I'm really happy I found this place on tripadvisor. All the comments are true, people here is very friendly, one big family.
Also they will organize your diving trips according to all your wishes. We had amazing experience swiming with whale sharks, diving in cenotes and Cozymel.
I was impressed by cenotes diving, so I asked Karla to advise me one more trip to this unreal space. She organized a private tour for me with great instructor Aurelien from France to the most beautifull place I ever seen!)))
One more thing to mention is "safety first". Team is really professional!
And you will be pleasently surprised by the prices.

PS: Thank you, Karla! You made my trip to Mexico!) You are amazing women, professional diver and I won't forget your smile!))) Best wishes to you!)
