The trip was booked almost a year previous and the anticipation has been overwhelming waiting for the 13th of May to Arrive. I cannot even begin to express the amount of gratitude that I have for each and every member of the Nautilus Team. I am an Avid diver who has the pleasure of diving on average 2-3 times per week on the east coast of Florida. I can say that the amount of attention that was given to each guest far superseeded my expectations. The captain and crew allowed the guest to dive to their ability which was quite refreshing to not be impeded by less qualified divers or made to feel inadequate by more experienced divers. This has absolutely been the best experience on a dive trip that I have ever experienced and will be which I grade all other dive trips against. The Nautilus Explorer Team has set the bar for the diving industry!!!!

Este fue mi primer viaje en un “Live aboard” y debo decir que estoy absolutamente sorprendido por la increible experiencia que he vivido. Lo único mejor que los buceos en este archipielago mexicano fue la inmejorable atencion y actitud de servicio de toda la tripulacion. Ha sido un viaje inolvidable, muchas gracias a quienes lo hicieron posible.
The 3 previous messages of our compagnons on this boat-trip of the 13-22 May challenge to write an even better note ….and it is just not possible …..Words do not, and can not describe the ambiance, food, the fabulous crew, the diving we experienced. It was our best diving experience up só far and I wonder if this can be can be beaten. Diveguides, crew, everyone, …. thank you só much that you allowed us to be in PARADISE!
Bisous et ….. a bientot, Jeannette & Dirk
I am really glad I decided to make this diving trip to the Revillagigedo and even more that I did só on the Nautilus Explorer. The islands offer dive sites full of all kinds of marine life that make every dive an amazing experience. Having said that I must also say that I am out of words to describe the attention onboard. Every member of the crew went out of their way to satisfy even the smallest details and that really made a difference between a great trip and an absolutely fabulous one. I really admire their attitude towards their work.
Great trip with plenty manta, dalphin and shark sitings. The underwater life and ‘warm’ waters of the three desert islands we visited was a unique experience for me, traveling solo for most of the trip. I enjoyed the knowlege and care of the NE staff to make the potentially treacherous dives, exciting and fun. Aboveboard the food was good and pleantiful and staff was accomodating and entheusiatic. The guests composed of an international group of Mexicans, Germans, Thai, Dutch, Britt, a Brazillian—my roommate, and Americans, including me were a fun lot, easy to get along with and provided an amusing broadband of worldwide dive stories, and insights into liveaboards and dive destinations.
I’d do this again and would like to see Alaska as an occassional destination for the Nautilus Explorer in the future.
