On Isla Mujeres Water Tours with Jorge de la O offers unforgetable...

On Isla Mujeres Water Tours with Jorge de la O offers unforgetable adventures of swimming with the whale sharks, fishing charters, Island Tours and custom private tours. My boat, the Anastacia, is 33 feet and designed for a comfortable ride on the ocean. The boat has plenty of cushioned seating, plenty of shade/sun and a clean bathroom on board in the cuddy cabin. Our values are safety, comfort, fun and preservation of the wildlife. We have top notch navigational equipment, marine radio and other safety features. We provide all snorkeling gear and fishing gear/bait in great condition.We don't have a downtown office. Contact is via our website.

My wife and I booked two trips to see the whale sharks in mid-August. Booking was easy over the internet, and I received full instructions just before my trip began. The boats can hold up to 10 snorkelers, but ours only had six one day and seven the other. So we got to spend lots of time in the water.... More

Honoring the memory of Captain Jorge, Beto, and Marco, Rissel, and Alfonso who disappeared at sea in early 2016, we returned to On Isla Tours for another adventure! This operator stands out for us because they are RESPECTFUL of the ocean and its inhabitants. Captain Archie and Cheche did not rush out to join the fray of boats and people... More

My wife and I took the whale shark tour with this company. The crew was professional, fun, and extremely helpful in every way. There were over 100 whale sharks where they took us. One of the crew member joined us in the water and took our GoPro and shot a lot of awesome footage of us with the whale sharks.... More

The entire crew took excellent care of us swimming through dozens of whale sharks and giant mantra rays. They knew where to go and how to navigate 10 curious people in the middle of the ocean surrounded by these glorious creatures. We'll be back! Thank you Captain Archy, Julio, and Oscar🙌

We headed out on June 25th 2016 aboard the Anastasia2. Crew was excellent in that they explained everything including safety rules. We traveled about 16 miles SE to the deep water channel. It was a fantastic day with perfect weather and lots of whale sharks. I could go on and on but I'll let this video that my husband shot... More
