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!

I've done a lot of snorkel sail trips in Hawaii before, but none compares to this amazing day aboard the Ally Cat. The crew (Booey and his team), the food, the boat and the scenery were all A+, but probably what sets it apart was the attitude of the crew whose goal was attentiveness and fun for everyone! From the... More

I would recommend this to anyone. The crew was so fun and very accommodating. Our group age range was 8 to 75 and everyone had a great time. There was always something to do. I don't normally write reviews but this group deserves top marks!

A friend living in Sayulita sailed with Ally Cat when she first arrived and recommended it to us. It was a great day on the water with a fun crew who also made it safe, as well as waiting on you hand and foot. The snorkeling was really good although crowded as we went over Thanksgiving week. It was fun... More

We had a wonderful family excursion to the Marietas on board the Ally Cat with 8 adults and 10 children. The boat was immaculate and service could not have been better. We caught a fish on the way out and had ceviche from it on the way home. Stand up paddle boarding, snorkeling and just hanging out. Lovely day. We... More

We just returned from a day trip with Ally Cat to Los Marietas Islands. I struggled with what rating to give it, as most of trip warranted a 4 or 5 with one big disappointment. First the 4-5 star parts: * The crew is friendly and helpful at every turn, delivering drinks, answering questions etc. * We sailed back much... More

We just got back from Mexico, We wanted to do something different this trip so we chartered the Ally cat to take us on a private sunset cruse. It was by far the best thing we have ever done in Mexico!! The crew was awesome, they knew what they were doing and we had a blast hanging out with them.... More

From start to finish this was one of the best days ever! We chartered the boat the day after my son's wedding. What a fun way for everyone to spend the entire day together. The food and drinks were flowing from the time we stepped on board. The staff are friendly and fun loving, yet incredibly in-tuned to safety. After... More

Guys, this is the best day-trip you can do. Seriously. The crew (Noah, Booey, Sergio and everyone) were downright awesome. We booked an "adults-only" day, so it was probably a bit "wilder" than a family trip, but snorkeling the Marietas. Diving off the back of the boat and sitting on the front trampoline of the boat were a day to... More

Hola Greg, Thank you so much for all the Kudos you gave the crew. They absolutely love to serve you and make you happy and content, but they also love to have fun, too, as you witnessed. They do pay every attention to detail so you can have an 'awesome' day, in the water or anchored somewhere near a beach.... More

My wife, Ellen and I had an AMAZING time on the Ally Cat on 11-8-16. We enjoyed hanging out meeting new people and talking to the crew. The food and drinks were really good too. The highlight was the trip to Cactus beach and then snorkeling after. The whole crew was awesome and they made sure everyone was safe but... More
