These guys are literally the best!! From the moment we met them they were super friendly and welcoming. Water, beer, coke , ham and cheese sandwiches offered throughout the activity for free. Their ceviche was the best we had on the island made fresh on the boat. They gave us Loads of time with the whales and even saw sting rays, turtles , flying fish and dolphins. Their boat had plenty of shade from the sun and even a rest room !!! The three crew members always had a smile on their face and made you feel like family! Thanks guys!!

I have been
On Isla Mujeres Water Tours every year for the past 6 years, sometimes twice a year. Each and every time I have felt safe, comfortable and so well informed. The boat is big with plenty of room. Having a bathroom is a big plus. The professional, well trained staff have always been extremely helpful, helping me on and off the boat, giving instructions as well as informing all aboard about the strick rules while swimming with the whale sharks. I look forward to many more trips!

This was my first trip with On Isla Mujeres Water Tours. Captain Archie and the crew are very knowledgeable and have experience and make sure all the boat passengers are taken care of. They provide you with breakfast while they explain the rules of the boat. The overall experience swimming with the whale sharks is amazing, they allow you to go solo or with one of the crew members whichever is more comfortable for you. They provide sandwiches, drinks, and other snacks for you to eat while on the boat. On the way back to the marina you stop at Playa Norte for ceviche which is delicious and you have the opportunity to swim around and enjoy the water at Playa Norte. Next time I make a trip to Isla Mujeres I will definitely be sure to take another trip with On Isla Mujeres Water Tours.

This company is about the guest experience. There is plenty of room on the boat and shade options. Because they put safety first, you can relax and just enjoy the experience. They offer fabulous ceviche on Whale Shark trips. My latest trip was fishing with On Isla Mujeres and they do everything possible to make sure you catch fish. Even just floating in the water at Playa Norte, one of my favorite things to do, they were on their game to make sure our experience was one to remember.

This is our second trip with On Isla Mujeres Water Tours. Our family and friends look forward to this highlight of our trip every year. Reservations are made easily online. Captain Archie and the crew have great knowledge and expertise and take care of their guests. We met at the marina and had a light breakfast while they explain the safety rules. The boat is very comfortable and has a cover to shade from the sun. Our daughters (13 and 14 years old) absolutely love swimming with the whale sharks. When they get back on the boat they have the happiest smiles on their face. Sandwiches, snacks and drinks are provided and after stopping at Playa Norte on the way back fresh cerviche is made and is so delicious. This is the best whale shark tour company on the island as the captain and crew are professional and fun at the same time. We can't wait until our next trip.
