Overview

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 Banderas Bay since 1985. The trips have been TONS of FUN for the whole family!!!! We are lucky to have a fantastic crew that has worked together for the past 25 years (except Noah the Captain, (Pancho's son), who 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 is great for all ages & occasions....... A True Adventure To Remember! From the moment you step aboard you will be greeted by the 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!

The crew of the Ally Cat is so much fun they could cheer up a funeral. We've been on it twice to the Marietas. We own rental vacation property in San Pancho and recommend Ally Cat to our guests.
