Contoy Island

Going to Isla in two weeks and want to take the kids to Contoy Island. How does one get there and where do you find the people to take you? Thank you

1. Re: Contoy Island

We have used Capt Tony and he is top notch. So have our friends. His boats are 25 ft older fishing boats/canopy and not large excursion boats. Expect a bit of rock & roll as larger swells are not uncommon. Be assured that Tony knows the waters very well and will not go out if conditions are questionnable. He will stop just short of Contoy for a bit of snorkeling. Then a couple of hours on Contoy with Tony's/crew excellent shore lunch. Feed and pet the sting ray aka Ponco is a fun activity.

He takes reservations in the afternoon after his return. His office is just off Hidalgo on Matamoras St.
