This was our fourth time out with Nautilus Liveaboards and our second on the Belle Amie. I am so looking forward to coming back already.
The crew were wonderful and attentive as always. They were very safety conscious and adhered to a strict protocol for the safety of all onboard. The boat is so spacious and comfortable. The food is good and plentiful – there is no losing weight on this trip!
We had an amazing week filled with wonderful encounters on every dive site we visited. The hammerhead sharks we saw here were more plentiful than my experience in Cocos Islands! There were plenty of Galapagos, silver tip, white tip and hammerhead sharks. There were even sightings of some massive black tip and tiger sharks.
I couldn’t get enough of the beautiful mantas! Nothing beats the feeling of having a creature so magical that chooses to initiate an interaction with you – simply breathtaking.
Thank you to Yann, Mario, Pato & Stein for always making sure we had wonderful dives. Also, I have to praise the work that Jessica, Iris & Cecilia did. They ran their butts off making sure we had everything and staying covid compliant; a Herculean task I am sure.
