Description: Come experience an unforgettable adventure aboard our Catamaran "Ally Cat...
Come experience an unforgettable adventure aboard our Catamaran "Ally Cat" a 56 ft, Luxury Yacht. We are a family run business, Sailing, Snorkeling, Fishing & Whale Watching, in Puerto Vallarta Bay since 1985. The trips have been TONS of FUN!!!! We have a fantastic crew that have all worked together for the last 25 years (except Noah the Captain, (Pancho's son), is only 25 yrs old) but has been with this crew since he was born :-) With our new boat ...... "Ally Cat".... our family has created a genuine sailing adventure that fits all ages & occasions....... A True Adventure To Remember! From the moment you step aboard you will be greeted by Captain & crew. Sit back & relax on one of our many comfortable deck seats, sink into one of our marine bean bags, or sun bathe on our two front large trampolines, as we whisk you off to paradise. "Ally Cat" provides top of the line snorkeling equipment, 4 kayaks, 2 paddle boards, "Boom Netting," fishing gear, and a refreshing outdoor fresh water shower. There is a beautiful cabin with 2 sofas for lounging, and a full bar area. With built-in stereo speakers all throughout the boat, Day Trips include: Light Breakfast, Snacks, Mexican Lunch prepared on the boat, Open Bar, & all the boat toys for the day. Our Main trip is from the La Cruz Marina to Las Marietas Islands, where it is home to the Blue Footed Boobie birds & beautiful reefs full of colorful tropical fish. We also will sail anywhere in the bay that you would like to go. Trips are from 9:30 am - returning around 4-5 pm. There is no substitute for quality and experience. Fun...Smiles...Exiting...Memorable... that's what we're all about... TO LIVE THE DREAM!

Now this is a well oiled enterprise. From the moment you are picked up to the final drop off 8 hours later all worked smoothly. Although the Marieta Islands were the destination, it did not matter. It was the voyage that counted. Really enjoyed the sail with a broad reach home. The crew were both very competent and friendly..

The crew was wonderful. Nice size catamaran so you get to know most of the folks on board. Took us to Marieta islands which are now more protected - thankfully. We arrived to a nice continental breakfast as we pulled anchor. Great tacos at lunch and a ton of fun water activities for kids or adults. The crew helped us... More

Our family of 14 booked a private cruise with Ally Cat and we had the best time! We sailed to Marietas Island and anchored close by for some fun ocean time. There were a ton of tour groups visiting Marietas but I felt like the crew at Ally Cat took such amazing care of our group. It was not something... More

What an amazingly fun day trip we had on the Ally Cat. We didn't go to the Marrietta Islands, instead we took a trip across the Bay to the south end where the Captain and crew found us gorgeous secluded beaches and cays where we could leap off rocks, paddle board and snorkel in some of the most beautiful water...

Hola J D, Well, this was a trip to remember, heading south to secluded beaches and cays where you could rock-jump and snorkel in the beautiful clear blue water, instead of going to the Marietta Islands. The Captains and crew had a chance to also be in a different atmosphere, serving up fresh drinks and lunch cooked on board, sometimes... More

ALL food and drinks INCLUDED. The crew makes sure everyone has a good time! They take you to the islands and then after you spend time there you come back and you can paddle board, lay on the lilly pad, just swim and jump off into the water. On the way back they stopped and made a lazy river with... More
