Owner description: 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!

This was by far our favorite day of the trip. Debbie, Pancho, Ally, Noah, and Nora are awesome! Thanks again for such a great trip!!! Definitely will be back : )

We started the trip off with a delicious breakfast buffet of pastries, fresh fruit, and coffee while we cruised for an hour or two to the islands. The boat made two stops at the islands at the most stunning beaches. You can choose to snorkel, kayak, paddle board or just explore the islands. They gave us ample time at each stop so we had plenty of time to do each activity. Afterwards, we had a huge lunch of fresh guacamole, fajitas, beans and rice; so good!! Also, there's unlimited booze the entire day so by the end it's a really fun party.

Definitely would recommend this to anyone traveling to Sayulita. Well worth the money. Great for families, couples or anyone looking for an awesome day in the sun!

This family run business aims to please and it succeeds in every way. We felt like family from the moment we set foot on board their beautiful catamaran. Delicious food, drinks of all kinds, fresh fruit, and many water activities as we sailed in the Pacific Ocean. The boat is large and spacious and the operators know the area very well. Ally Cat came highly recommended to us and we highly recommend it to you. You won't be disappointed.

Went on the Ally cat with my family and had the time of our lives. No clue how much fun it would be. Service was impeccable and lots to do and see. Boom net was outrageous and diving was unbelievable. Will return again hopefully soon. Well worth the money. Food was super and the presentation was beautiful. All around great trip. Everything is included in the price.

I am thrilled to have had the experience of going on this charter. The boat is extremely beautiful and very clean. It is hard to believe that it is a charter boat. The service is 5 star+. My family has been on many charters in different places and nothing compares to this family operated business. The crew really made the experience a lifetime memory. They treated the passengers feel like family. We had a group of 16 adults and children on the boat and we all agree that it was the best day of our vacation. Lastly, the food and never-ending beverage service could not have been better. We had a very nice continental breakfast and delicious fajita lunch. The variety of quality blended drinks were continuous. THIS COMPANY IS A REALLY GEM!. Thank you for this unforgetable day!
