We planned a trip to Isla Mujeres specifically to swim with whale sharks. We are so happy we went with Ceviche tours! The water was rougher than normal but the captain got us to the dive spot as comfortably as possible. Fred was our guide and was amazing! They got us all in the water close to the sharks. They also thought us about the history of the sharks in the area before it became a government regulated attraction. After swimming with the sharks we anchored to snorkel for about 30 minutes while Fred and the captain prepared the best ceviche we have ever had. We were told it was the captain’s grandmother’s recipe.
The tour was perfect and we would highly recommend Ceviche Tours to anyone visiting Isla Mujeres.

While on another dive adventure with some of the best friends anyone could ever want we decided to knock off a bucket list item. We booked a snorkel tour through Dive Paradise ein Cozumel and they hooked us up with Ceviche Tours on Isle Muejures.

The boat ride out was bumpy but that can’t be controlled. Once at the snorkel site we were dropped off in the midst of 40 plus Whale Sharks. There were also several large Manta Rays that put on a breaching show.

After finishing the snorkel portion we traveled to Isle Muejueres for fresh Conch Ceviche, oh my good it was off the chart good.

Capt. Jesus and tour guide Hymie are fantastic. If you are ever in the area and have the chance to do this tour you won’t regret it.

For the best whale shark experience, the best service and less commercial. The team is great, very friendly and accommodating. They will help you with all your questions upfront, like how to get to the island and where to stay. They give personal service and I definitely recommend the private tour they offer, you will have full freedom and you decide when you leave. They are very honest and transparent about the experience, for example you can go very early to avoid the crowds but it will be harder to find the whale sharks quickly when it’s just you looking for one.

Also, they make the most amazing ceviche for you as lunch! Honestly it was the best I ever had, including expensive restaurants!

I recommend this company for a personal experience which you can tailor to your liking without selling you impossible things.

Went fishing on 8/3/2022. Booked 2 boats for full day offshore trip approximately 3 months ago. The agreement was (2) 33’ center consoles that had a bathroom. Our group arrives to go fishing at 7am. Sat around and waited for the boats to get supplies and everything needed until 7:50am. As we get ready to board, one of our groups gets a 33’ boat and the other was approximately a 27’ with no outriggers for offshore. Totally not equipped. I refused the boat and said I was not going to accept it. Finally after them seeing the full anger and frustration, they got a boat equipped with riggers. As we are going out, we are told there are is no restroom on board. So obviously not part of the agreement. Anyways, we get out and start fishing (trolling) and the captain is dragging through full areas of seaweed. Fish don’t bite seaweed. So after an hour or so of battling seaweed and constantly having to reel in lines, I tell them we would like to bottom fish. Soooo as we start bottom fishing, the first fish breaks the line. Not a big fish. Probably a 5-6lb mahi. The deckhand re-ties and lose 2 more fish back to back after that. The deckhand responds “the line is no good”. I just shook my head. The equipment is subpar. Not equipped to reel any big fish in. The captain and deckhand seemed average with knowledge of fishing. Both boats ended up catching about 25 fish, but nothing big. Also, every fish caught was thrown into a box at the back of the boat with gas lines and all motor supplies. No ice at all. The fish were fillet at the dock, but I told them to keep them. Didn’t want to risk getting sick. Some fish had been out of water 6 hours or more with no ice. 🤦‍♂️ I would not recommend for any fisherman with experience. Cheap price and I see why.

My husband and I did the private whale shark tour with Jesus and his brother Fred. It was amazing! We got to see several whale sharks which was awesome! We also swam right in the midst of dozens of manta rays. We did a manta ray tour in Hawaii- this was SO much better! Incredible!

More than all that though, these guys are truly top notch humans. We asked about going out snorkeling the next day as we were talking. And as we kept talking, they learned my husband loves to fish. So they offered up a fishing and snorkeling private trip for us the next day (today). It was the best day! I'm writing this today, so that anyone here on the fence just books! Seriously they are the best! Our custom trip ended with fresh caught barracuda ceviche on the beach watching the sunset.

I can say confidently that this tour will be the highlight of our trip and we are only halfway through.

Thank you Fred, Jesus and Tony. You made our trip (which happens to be our honeymoon). We are so happy and grateful!

We pd $750 for 5 of us, $80 ferry ride, $130 taxi ride. We didn't see any whale sharks and everyone got sick. The boat staff was very nice and I know it wasn't his fault the water was ruff and sharks weren't around. We went snorkeling for about 20 min. Then went to a beach and anchored out near other boats to float around while he made ceviche, which was very good. They didn't seem very experienced in anchoring in that area because the boat almost hit several other bigger nicer boats. My husband kept having to warn them about other ropes and anchors. Huge disappointment considering the money spent to me miserable for 6hrs! There needs to be a warning on the description about likely sea sickness and whale sharks may not be seen at all. Also, no fresh fruit provided as advertised.

Went on a waleshark snorkeling tour today with Jesus and his colleague. Wow. Unforgettable experience. We got what they call a “full house”: sea turtles mating, school of dolphins, huge manterrays and of course the wale sharks. Snorkeling on the way back and fresh ceviche. These guys are top notch. Great service, equipment, very experienced crew. Overall unforgettable experience and great value. Would recommend Ceviche Tours in a heartbeat.

We were routed to them via Carey Dive center.
Overall good trip (someone was seasick the whole time so take that warning seriously if you are prone to sickness, we were fine, sea not very rough for our trip)
2-3 5-10 minute windows to jump in with the shark.
The communication was limited on the boat (ie limited english), limited information about the whale sharks, expected a little more. We did stop for a "snorkel" stop on the way back, but not at a reef

Wow! What an amazing time, Jesus and Cuco were excellent hosts. I would really recommend them as fishing guides. They were friendly, attentive, and VERY helpful (obviously) with the fishing. They also made us the best ceviche I've ever eaten with our catch!! I would definitely go back out with them again.
