Booked with Captain Tony for a trip over to Isla Contoy. Captain Tony was great, he goes out early so you are the first to arrive. There were 8 of us on the island for about an hour and it was so nice and secluded. The lunch he and his brother prepare are great, I'm still thinking about his fruit... More

We booked with Captain Tony last July. Our family of 6 had an amazing experience with Tony, his brother and Tony's daughter. We swam with so many whale sharks... it was an experience of a lifetime! Tony was so cautious and careful with my little kids. The fresh guacamole and ceviche they made was amazing! We even went another day... More

We had read a lot about Captain Tony. Everything we read was true and more! On the way to see the whale sharks, we ran into a group of giant manta rays. He immediately stopped the boat and yelled to everyone to jump in. It was amazing. No other boat stopped or even saw the rays. Tony and his daughter... More

Before our trip to Isla Mujeres, I had done a lot of research on the best whale shark tour guides-- with his rave reviews, Captain Tony definitely won our vote and we emailed him to reserve a spot on his boat. The two things that appealed most to my boyfriend and I, is that he is a local and he... More

El Capitan Tony is much-liked and well-reviewed in online forums. You will probably end up on someone else's boat for your whale shark trip - one of the other coop members. We booked through Captain Tony, went with Captain Chili and mate Pappas. It was great.

DO THIS TOUR! You won't regret the breathtaking experience! My family and I sought out Captain Tony for his whale shark tour on the Guadalupana. While most whale shark tour operators charge $125 per person, Captain Tony only charges $100 per person. To make a reservation, email him - he is very kind and responsive. Captain Tony's shop is right... More

Today we did the trip with Tony and had an amazing experience. Tony is a very nice person and apparently very experienced in swimming with the whale sharks. Thanks Tony!

Captain Tony is NOT one of those looking to make fast money. He is fair and honest, truly enjoys taking small groups of people out to snorkel or cruise the waters. He will not go out if the wind or weather is uncooperative. He wants his customers to enjoy their experience. There were 4 of us on our trip. He... More

Tony, has so much information to share about Isla Mujeres and Conroy. His quirky sense of humor makes everyone relax and have a wonderful tour. We were so very lucky to be able to tour Isla with him and his daughter. What a fun duo to hang with for the afternoon! We can't wait to get back to Isla and... More
