Dockside Water Filtration for Mexican Water

I have a General Ecology water filter for use as a dockside filter here in the U.S. I also have a water purifier on my galley faucet. That's fine for our basically clean U.S. water, but neither handle cysts, bacteria, viruses, etc. I'm heading down to Cabo and La Paz, and will need to fill up my tanks (162 gallons) for the ride home. I've looked at RO and UV systems, but all of them are for filtering after you've put the water in the tanks (ie; between tank and faucet).

Does anyone know of a dockside filter system that captures Mexico water badness before it reaches the tank?
