Crew Notes and images (including the rare dusky shark!) Socorro Expedition June 5-13 2011

Dusky Shark, a rare sighting indeed!

As a mate aboard the Nautilus Explorer I have had a great time meeting new guests from all over the world, and exploring areas of the ocean i have not been too. The vessel is very nice and clean and is very well equipped, for diving exploration and recreational diving. Currently aboard there is a broad spectrum of guests ranging from Scientists doing Manta research, couples wanting a diving vacation and people traveling on there own seeking adventure and great diving in Mexico. Our trip is coming to an end and the guests aboard are in a great mood, and the saloon is full of stories of Marine life that they have seen on the trip and the best spots that they dove at, and the great food. I look forward to my next trip aboard the Nautilus, and strongly recommend that if your an adventure seeker and a diving enthusiast, to come join us for a trip. You won’t leave disappointed, but probably will leave with a sun tan and a great story to tell.

Mate, Nautilus Explorer

The Nautilus Explorer departed Cabo with 22 passengers on a eight day trip., For some of the passengers it was their first time aboard a live aboard dive charter vessel, these were welcomed by many returning passengers and scientists, and crew. The crew and passengers were involved in tagging manta and white tip sharks, Replacing and retrieving underwater data bouys from pervious expeditions. Dr Robert Rubin, and Dr Maurico, Roberto Chavez, gave nightly talks, and slide presentations.

Beautiful Silky sharks at night during our snorkel.

Es mi tercer viaje y es un gusto ver a las personas como regresan contentos de su buceo,como comparten sus experiencias con los demas y como disfrutan al ver que los espero con una charola con bebidas refrescantes y fruta, para quitar el mar sabor a sal.
Por la cena, es un gran convivio y mas tarde se les da una presentacion, la cual todos estan esperando, mas este viaje, pues tenemos cientificos importantes abordo.
En lo personal estoy muy contento con mi trabajo y con mis companeros.
Adolfo
