Days leading up to this trip had a touch of anxiety, excitement, and concern – being my #1 bucket-list-item, this held a large expectation on my end. I spent time reading articles, reviews, and more, trying to gather any bit of detail I could on what to expect, pack, and experience and what liveaboard to choose. In short – this trip exceeded expectations. The crew was beyond exceptional – caring for literally every need we had, made this a five-star experience for all of us (literally they’re amazing).
The group of people has been amazing and I feel fortunate to have made friends from around the globe now. The space and comfort of the boat also exceeded expectations. Not once did I feel overcrowded or uncomfortable. We all dispersed easily to enjoy the boat for its different amenities. The cages were well spread out so we had an insane amount of cage time, we were all spoiled with the amount of time we could spend with the sharks – the sharks are INSANE and unbelievable -even better than you could ever imagine!
This was hands down the most remarkable experience of my life. The people, staff, sharks, relaxation, food, timeline all make the best time of my life. Seriously, do it. Love you, Nautilus!
