About Ally Cat Sailing Adventures
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!

Every year that we travel to Paradise we always book a Whale Watching tour. Used a couple of companies over the years but found this gem a few years ago. They are the Best! Whales don't give you their social calendar so you may see lots of whales or you may see a minimal

Hello Sue, We love to see repeat customers who truly appreciate our amazing crew and their willingness to go above and beyond what is expected of them. They cater to young and old alike, and persons with mobility issues that may be afraid to go on a sailing adventure, and making sure everyone is having F u N !! All of Banderas Bay in Nayarit is closed for business due to the virus. We appreciate your well wishes for us to stay safe, and we look forward to seeing you again for a better 2021 season. Pancho, Noah, and the Ally Cat Crew

Hola Armando, Congratulations! What an adventure your wedding guests were able to experience while whale watching and decompressing from the wedding activities the day before. Our Sunset Cruise was definitely the way to go the next evening, and we are sure the sunset didn't disappoint. Wish we could see your photo on this page, I'll bet it was amazing! We look forward to seeing you on your First Anniversary for an all day trip on Banderas Bay! Pancho, Noah, and the Ally Cat Crew

Can't say enough about this experience. We took the power boat and it was perfectly set up for a fun day. The crew made the whole thing possible. They were so friendly and fun, knowledgeable about the ocean life, taking care to be environmentally friendly and respectful, and

Greetings! Happy to hear you had an 'amazing time' on Fat Cat, the newest, largest catamaran in our fleet. Great boat to whale watch on, with it's large upper deck, taking pictures down on the water; a different perspective. Yes, our crew is what makes the day memorable, comfortable and a lot of FuN for all on board. Pancho, Noah, and the Ally Cat Crew
