Whale sharks, mantas, dolphins, false-killer whales, octopus, Galapogos sharks, Hammerhead sharks, Silky sharks… I could go on and on. Captain’s Log May 15th 2011 Socorro

Everything seemed to come together to make this trip a truly wonderful experience.  The gorgeous weather, the great company of the guests and crew, and of course, the diving.  I don’t know how to describe the diving in a way that will justify the experience!

Whale sharks, mantas, dolphins, false-killer whales, octopus, Galapogos sharks, Hammerhead sharks, Silky sharks…I could go on and on.  It really was a magical time at the Islas de Revillagigedo’s and all aboard the Nautilus were blessed with great dives, even me!

San Benedicto, Roca Partida and Socorro left us all feeling very privileged. We departed the islands through some large swell and heavy wind which delighted some guests as they enjoyed the adventure of ‘being at sea!’ Hatches were dogged down and everyone held on as the ship rose and crashed down on the waves.  It was blue water cruising at its best!  We made our way north and eased into the Sea of Cortez under a stunningly beautiful sunrise.
The weather was calm and ship steamed along, everyone comfy and happy.  We stopped at 4 amazing divesites in 2 days, including an entertaining dive with dozens of playful sealions.  Some divers reported sea lion pups playing and coming close for a kiss.  Games of hide-and-seek and tag kept the entertainment coming.   It was a slow cruise back to Cabo below a huge orange moon and as I watched the sun rise out of the Eastern horizon I realized how rich I really am.

Cudos to you and your crew for a fantastic trip. I got my holy grail, the whale shark, and overall, had the dive trip of my life! Loved my fellow dive buddies and our incredible crew!
