I had originally booked a solo trip to Guadalupe Island with Nautilus Liveaboards for the summer and was disappointed at first that the island closed. Nautilus offered a Sea of Cortez trip instead. I was pretty nervous because I’m not a diver, and it’s a very dive-centered trip but it ended up feeling like a blessing in disguise!
Everything about the Sea of Cortez trip was incredible! The crew was friendly, accommodating, and fantastic! The food was absolutely amazing, and the other guests were so wonderful! We saw so many amazing animals on this trip and got to swim with a pod of orcas, a huge pod of dolphins, curious sea lions, and so much more! Divemaster Ronald taught a discovery to scuba course, and he made me feel so comfortable and safe while underwater. Faviola was incredibly helpful and kind during the whole trip, and Juan David, and Yann were always so friendly and happy to help and answer any questions! The entire crew was phenomenal. They made sure there was plenty for everyone to see and do, even snorkelers! If not for Guadalupe’s closing, I would never have tried a trip like this, but I am so happy I did! This was seriously an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime trip, and I cannot recommend Nautilus Liveaboards enough! I can’t wait to go on another trip with them!
