I had a spectacular trip to the islands around Socorro, and in a large part due to the entire crew of the Belle Amie. One divemaster in particular, Damian, made my diving a great experience while in the water. His enthusiasm for diving and life in general makes me smile every time I see him on the boat or when I think of him and his love of life.
I highly recommend the Nautilus Experience to new and experienced divers.
Best dive ever! The Nautilus Belle Amie crew makes diving a joy. It is an incredible experience to be with people who say, “Yes you can, and we’re going to help you!” My divemaster (and birthday boy) Derrick was encouraging and professional.
This trip has been a two-fer for me… See magnificent things and improve my diving. Derrick made suggestions that helped me do both.
We dropped down to schools of fish and whitetip reef sharks stacked like firewood on the ledges of Roca Partida. Visibility was unlimited and soon a hammerhead shark took shape out of the blue, to be followed by 5 mantas that swirled around us and looked us in the eye – literally made eye contact. It was magical. We were stoked! It’s hard to put into words the joy we felt at the end of the dive. I’ll sum it up this way…god is good and I am happy to be alive.
