Sailing on the Gallant Lady for Wonderful Underwater Adventures

Let me be very honest with my readers, my wife almost dragged me to this Liveaboard trip on the Nautilus Gallant Lady. I had just learned to scuba and was not sure about what to expect. However, I must say I was absolutely blown away by everything. Every member of the crew went above and beyond to make sure we all had the best diving experience of a lifetime. While on board and in the water, we had everything that we could have possibly wanted. And on top of it, the diving was spectacular.

I have found a new hobby I love and I AM SO SPOILED BY THE NAUTILUS CREW. Thank you, Captain Yann, our hostess Sylvia, dive masters Celina and Stein, Chef Julio, Oscar mate, and Aurelio our engineer for making this trip so incredible and memorable.

Warm Hospitality Aboard the Gallant Lady

The accommodation aboard the Gallant Lady exudes opulence and comfort. Upon our arrival, the charming Sylvia, our dedicated hostess for the entire journey, warmly welcomed us with a bottle of champagne. The staterooms are generously proportioned and inviting, while the common areas provide an atmosphere of relaxation, facilitating easy socialization and the opportunity to forge new friendships.

Stein and Celina, our accomplished dive masters, truly stand out. Their expertise guided us to remarkable underwater sites, and they treated our diving gear with the utmost care, akin to their own belongings. A highlight was our recent evening, graced by a delectable Mexican dinner, hosted on the top deck. Culinary delights have consistently punctuated our journey, with a diverse array of cuisines expertly prepared by our accommodating cook, Julio. His flexibility shines, readily tailoring dishes to accommodate special dietary needs.

As we reach our fourth day at sea, a profound sense of tranquility envelops us, with the option to participate in up to four dives each day. The absence of any pressure to undertake every dive is liberating, yet I have chosen to seize the chance, yielding a series of unforgettable and enriching dive experiences.

Spectacular Dives Among Amazing Sea Life

The underwater world has unveiled its wonders – Moray eels, triggerfish, sea lions, and the awe-inspiring spectacle of expansive schools of Jacks. As we embrace Friday, we anticipate two more days of captivating dives. Our current location, a charming island north of La Paz, promises extensive encounters with playful sea lions throughout the day. The competence of our Captain Yann and First Mate Jan ensures seamless navigation and an unwavering commitment to our comfort.

Capturing each moment through the lens, I’ve been amassing an impressive collection of photos and videos, a testament to the fascinating allure of this trip. Already, my thoughts drift to the future, imagining my next expedition with Nautilus Liveaboards. Among the vessels I have experienced, the Gallant Lady has secured a special place in my heart, embodying the epitome of maritime excellence.

With anticipation brimming, I eagerly await the unfolding adventures and the chance to embark on another unforgettable odyssey.
