Isla Contoy Trip

We are looking to take the trip to Isla Contoy and are wondering if one operator is as good as another. We are looking at Mundaca Divers. Anyone been there with this outfit and care to share.

We are also looking at the one day dive for non certified divers with Coral Scuba Dive Center. Anyone delt with this company?

Thanks in advance for any info. I feel that the fourums give us all a really true look at what is available at our destinations.

80 Days and counting !!!!

My husband and son, both certified, have been very happy with Mundaca Divers. I have also heard good things about Coral.

We weren't able to go to Contoy due to wind conditions when we were there, but probably the person w/the most experience in trips to the island is Capt. Tony - he is located right in town on Matamoros (sp?).

There are several dive centers on Isla. My husband did his w/Aqua Adventures and was very pleased, but I know Coral and SeaHawk rates well also.

Have a great trip! :)

Captain Tony would be my choice. We went with another crew once and it was the trip from heck. It was windy and rainy and the waves were ginormus!! Later I found out Captain Tony didn't go out all that week because the conditions too were bad. He is great.

I would also recommend Captain Tony, who we have always used for snorkel trips.

Last year, we went with another operator, who was not as conscious of the weather as Tony is.

It was a very ROUGH RIDE back to Isla Mujeres. We were all "green".

Tony's board is fairly small though, so if you are prone to seasickness, maybe consider an outfit with a bigger boat. I think one of them is called "contoy express"

they have a real bad service, we went last week, the dive master has no experience, the scuba equipment is not complete, no shade in the boat, they don't give us nothing to drink, only water, no ice, no food, real bad service

Coral Divers is closed - the owner has retired.

Another option would be Aqua Adventures - has a very good reputation.

I would also recommend Captain Tony. We had a great time with him and one of the best lunches while in Isla. Enjoy!
