Pro Dive International Announces Second ‘SharkSchool Riviera Maya’ Experience

Is diving among bull sharks on your bucket list?

Well, the folks at Pro Dive International in February held an event they called “SharkSchool Riviera Maya,” and have decided to host a second such event this coming December.

Participants will get five days’ worth of dives and lectures about this particular apex predator with shark behavior scientist Erich Ritter.

The event will be held from December 13 to 19, 2016, at Pro Dive’s partner hotel, the Occidental Allegro Playacar, on the Riviera Maya in Mexico.

Pro Dive International CEO & founder Markus Fleischmann says:

“We will provide experienced divers with the privilege to encounter the top predator BULL SHARK in its natural habitat. The participants of our SHARKSCHOOL™, no matter if in love or scared of sharks, will learn about their behaviour, practice to interpret situations, react appropriately, and above all — to feel comfortable, as well as get all their questions answered about the top of the food chain during our daily SHARKSCHOOL™ workshops with DR. ERICH RITTER, leading shark communications and interactions researcher.”

The cost for the experience will be US$1,699/1,502 Euros per diver, with an optional three-day cenotes dive and stay extension through Dec 22nd for an additional US$699/618 Euros.
