Ocean diving from Playa del Carmen

Welcome to the second largest Barrier Reef in the World

“The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.” Jacques Yves Cousteau

The Mesoamerican Reef region lies within the Caribbean Sea and touches the coasts of Mexico, Belize, Guatemala and Honduras. It contains the largest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere, stretching nearly 700 miles from the northern tip of the Yucatan Peninsula down through the Honduran Bay Islands. Dazzling arrays of different types of coral form this underwater wilderness, and provide homes and food to hundreds of fish species, marine turtles, and sharks. Along the shores, mangroves provide habitat for fish and shorebirds as well as protect coastal areas from the damage associated with hurricanes and strong storms.

Ocean Diving Cozumel with Elite Divers International

BULLSHARK DIVING

Bull Sharks are one of the most feared ocean predators, even though humans are not part of their diet. Unfortunately, their bad reputation is due to the fact that most of the information found on them comes from tabloids. Our aim is to increase awareness about these magnificent beasts and make you fall in love as we did.

From November to March, our majestic Bullsharks visit us to give us a sight worth of a life’s bucket-list. We offer Observation diving exclusively (no feeding), and this is certainly one of the most thrilling and humbling experience while diving in winter in the region.

Our fee below includes the local Saving Our Sharks Association Donation Bracelet and the PDC Marine Reserve Participation.
