This luxury 38 metre, steel hulled liveaboard caters for experienced divers looking for advanced and sometimes challenging liveaboard diving in remote destinations.
Accommodation on board this custom built boat ranges from the luxurious premium suite on the hot-deck, to the more cost effective, mixed gender triple occupancy stateroom on the lower deck. All cabins are air-conditioned and most offer en-suite facilities. The boat features modern, spacious amenities suited for divers. Everything is first class and certified to the same exacting international SOLAS and ISM standards as the largest cruise ship.
The boat visits Guadalupe Island from July to November, prime season for great white shark encounters. Trips are five nights and diving is operated in cages, observing the sharks from a safe distance. Travel time to the island is 20 hours and is worth every minute! The boat moves to ensure the best shark encounters and the cages are built to maximise safety and comfort with excellent viewing and photography characteristics, providing divers with total freedom of movement and a 360 degree panoramic visibility. The next few days are spent in the water as much as possible to ensure maximum shark sightings. Non-divers are welcome.
The Nautilus Explorer voyages out to Socorro Island most of the year to dive and interact with the friendliest, majestic giant Pacific mantas (manta birostris) in the world. As well as mantas you can expect plenty of species of sharks (including schooling hammerheads), pods of dolphin, humpback whales (Jan-Apr) and whale sharks at different times throughout the year. You will also have the opportunity of a night snorkel with silky sharks. It takes over a day to get out to this remote location and on a regular nine day trip you’ll have five memorable days at famous sites of the Revillagigedos archipelago, including Socorro, San Benedicto and Roca Partida.
