We did the whale Shark swim with Diego and Omar and could NOT be happier. 10 of us each got multiple swims right next to the animals. If you can get Diego and Omar as guides you will not be disappointed!

Wow!!!! We booked Contoy to do a private whale shark swim and we could not have been happier! We went out with our captain I believe his name is Joseph and our cameraman willie they were simply awesome to us they got us to the whale sharks first and we got to swim alone with a whale shark and Manta rays which was my wife’s dream as well as mine they took excellent care of us we saw a total of four whale sharks and swam with all of them. After the whale sharks we went isla mujeris and had lunch the captain made the very bet cervechi I have ever had this was an amazing adventure and cannot wait to book contoy again when we come back down One of the things that I love was how our guides respected the animals we swam with they educated us on everything from the Animals we swam with to the coral reef and the importance of protecting it thank you contoy for an adventure we will never forget!!!!

Today, I had a once-in-a-lifetime adventure seeing the whale sharks in a boat crewed by Diego and Omar. The boat did not have too many people on board which made it friendly, comfortable and not cramped. Diego was very careful to not overcrowd the whale sharks by only allowing two swimmers and himself in the water at a time. We could have taken one of a number of companies to see the whale sharks, but I do believe Contoy Adventures is a eco-conscious company. While we were swimming and about to leave the whale shark migration area, Diego spotted a plastic bag on the surface and quickly removed it. At that moment I felt that Diego was the “real deal” — a person who genuinely loves the ocean life and someone who would go to great lengths to see the sharks safe, healthy, and not stressed by people or environmental hazards.

EXCELLENT VALUE!! Excellent service - Eddie was constantly checking on us to make sure we didn’t need anything. They - Manuel - did a great job leading us through the coral reef & pointing out fish pics were great. Perfect amount of time at each location. We were a family of 6 with 4 teens & they loved it. Favorite stop was playa del Norte beach - absolutely amazing water talk to you after would rival the best beaches in the world. All agreed this was the best day of a 10 day trip!!
