Activity description

Who has never dreamt of coming across one of those sharks during a dive? Well, with Phocea Mexico you can get up-close and personal with them every year, from November to March!

During the season, Phocea Mexico organises scuba dives every day, at the beginning of the afternoon so you can closely admire these spectacular creatures.

This dive is set on a sandy bottom around 65 feet deep, where you just have to wait a few minutes to see them appearing. As they are very curious animals, they will certainly approach you at less than 6 feet.

The Bull Shark or Zambezi Shark does not grow longer than 12 feet. Its back is grey or olive brown, the extremity of its fins are a little bit darker and its belly is off-white. It holds its name because of its massive, squat, heavy and strong appearance and its flattened and short snout.
