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!

From top to bottom, our Ally Cat tour could not have been better. The office staff were kind, accommodating and informative. The boat staff catered to us and were exceptionally entertaining. The tour itself was enormous fun- the highlight of our trip. Highly recommend. This is a must-do.

The crew made this a memorable time for all family members and friends. Snorkelling, paddle board, boat diving, net dragging and the beach was great. The day was a little long but the crew made sure everyone was comfortable, well feed and had a variety of drinks.

The day we were supposed to have a sunset trip there was a big storm so we had to postponed the trip because it was too dangerous.

Hi Catherine, Thank you for sticking around after the storm to experience your amazing Sunset trip three days later. La Lancha is certainly a beautiful beach in which to surf, paddleboard, and swim. Getting there by water is a much more satisfying experience than driving, and we are glad the sunset didn't disappoint. Great ending for a great trip! Pancho,... More
