Dive Report, Nautilus Belle Amie

The Nautilus fleet’s “Silky Snorkel” is always a highlight for many guests on our trips. It seems pretty self explanatory but until you actually do it you will never really know. To be in the the water, in the middle of the night, surrounded by several or sometimes many sharks is pretty special. They are completely at home and it almost seems like they know you are not. With this added confidence and maybe a decrease in your own it makes for great high adrenaline encounters.

Often the Silky sharks will come to within arms reach or even closer and can be all around you. Every now and then the Black Jacks and other Trevally species in the area attempt to hunt small fish and sometimes the Silkies start feeding on flying fish which is pretty awesome. Every now and then other unexpected creatures of the deep show up. I have also seen turtles, Galapagos sharks, Silvertip sharks and quite regularly dolphins on these night snorkels.
Tonight was no exception with constant interactions with around 6 sharks but as many as 10-12 at some points!

Also you get a nice Hot chocolate with Baileys to warm you up afterwards if you are brave enough to get in the water!!!
