Wonderful Day on the Water!
We had a wonderful day with Eddie and Gabriel watching whales, catching (one) fish, and exploring a secluded beach! Everything worked smoothly and they were very well able to handle entertaining ages 14 to 78!

Banana is the BEST!
We heard about Captain Pancho from a friend and the recommendation was spot on --- our entire experience was amazing! Pancho and Alberto are locals, know a lot of history on the area, and were just awesome humans to hang out with for a few hours. Our three boys had a blast fishing for Dorado, snorkeling, cliff jumping, and wakeboarding. We can't wait to come back to the area and explore the Yelapa waterfall, and cruise around the bay again with Banana Sport Fishing. During this trip we ziplined, rode horses, and surfed....but we all said our day with Pancho was the highlight of our family vacation.

FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE with Pancho and Team!
This was the highlight of our trip to Sayulita. From start to finish an easy and seamless process. Emily is very communicative on timing and the logistics of everything. Pancho made this experience excellent for my girlfriend and I. We got to customize it to our own agenda and were able to catch some great looking fish and he whipped up fresh Ceviche while we snorkeled. 10 out of 10 experience and we will be going again when we come back later this year. Can't recommend this enough!

Great day on the water
Captain Pancho customized a great day for our family on the water. The kids wanted fun water sports, and had a blast tubing and wakeboarding. The whole crew was awesome and really patient with us. Can’t wait for our next visit to Nayarit so we can hit the water again

Excelente Servicio
El paseo estuvo increíble. Pancho es super servicial. Mis hijos se divirtieron muchísimo. Me encantó ver ballenas, pescar y aparte nos prepararon un ceviche super delicioso con lo que pescamos.
Nos paramos en una playita donde hicieron snorkel aparte de que el lugar era precioso.
Lo recomendamos ampliamente. Super anfitrión llevaba cervezas, refrescos y botellitas de agua.
Gozamos!!!! Gracias Pancho!! Te vamos a recomendar en Monterrey!!!!!

Fantastic fishing and snorkeling tour
"Pancho" and his assistant gave us the perfect day we will be trying to match for years to come. We had four adults and six kids and everyone left completely blissed out about how unbelievable our day had been. As my husband was reeling in a HUGE Mahi Mahi, then entire group turned around 180º to see a massive whale breach and splash down 100 feet from the boat--and that was probably the 20th breach we had seen that day. Pancho quickly whipped up some ceviche from our fresh Mahi catch and we refueled from hours of swimming and snorkeling between whale watching a fishing. A completely magical day. Couldn't have asked for anything more.

Awesome all-inclusive adventure!
Banana sport fishing not only provided my family and I a very enjoyable boat ride, but loaded on one surprise after another, with free drinks, fresh in-boat made ceviche, a beach stop, and even an opportunity for my first attempt at wake boarding! If you’re looking for a well-rounded experience where everyone in your group will get what they’re looking for, this is it! :)

Pancho, a local Captain, was first introduced to the restaurant industry as a teenager working alongside his mom, cousins, and aunts at ChocoBanana in Sayulita’s plaza. He then went on to work as a Captain and Fisherman for Allycat for 15 years before launching his own boat tour business in 2021, Banana Sport Fishing. As Pancho and Emily grew Banana Sport Fishing, which departs from La Cruz, they wanted to extend the environment they create on the boat charter to restaurant space, introducing At The Dock Sayulita. Emily is a native of Indianapolis who built her career in Washington, DC as an international development consultant focused on designing entrepreneurship and workforce development programs for the United States and Latin America. She looks forward to applying her background in business design and strengths-based organizational culture to their new venture. Pancho and Emily have always lived between different cultures, languages, and ways of life and aspire to make The Dock a relaxing and joyful meeting place for everyone that lives and passes through Sayulita. Equally important to them is creating a healthy environment for their employees, as they’ve witnessed first-hand how good jobs are fundamental to great lives and positive communities.
