This was our 12th liveaboard trip and it ranks number one in my mind based on the crew, outstanding side trips, and the diving. It is very unfortunate that this was the last full Alaska trip.

I am new to cold water diving, and the crew, notably Alex and Colton, made me feel comfortable.

Please keep the hiring practices you have in place as they have been successful for my experience on the swell and the Explorer.

One of the very best travel experiences of my life - I am so sad that the Nautilus Explorer will no longer sail this route, as I found other live aboards very fussy and impersonal in comparison. Thank you for making this all possible!!!!

Sorry to be losing the Swell, especially for the Gulf Island trip.

Keep up the great work, all of you. The service that I received not only on The Swell but also from headquarters was fantastic. And thanks for getting me onboard for this trip! It was the only trip that I could fit into my schedule this summer, and I would have been heart broken and forelorn had I not been able to dive the Alaskan waters in The Swell after the otherworldly trip that I was on last September. By the way, I wrote a small story about our trip this July. I'll finish it later this summer as |'ll be away for another month. I will send you a copy for your reading pleasure.

Only tremendous disappointment that the Swell has been sold. Of the 15+ liveaboards I have been on (including 2 trips on the Explorer), it has by far the most character. Great vessel, great crew, great diving, great trip.

All the dives were great and the land/ice activities were so enjoyable. Compared to the previous live-aboards I have been on, the quality of the dives and the service on the Swell was far superior. I had an amazing time both underwater and on the boat.This was the best dive vacation ever!

This was by far the best diving trip I have ever been on. I love the adventure that this trip offered. I loved all the land excursions (hiking, bear watching, salmon hatchery, port Alexander, hot springs, ice day, whale information etc). We come for diving, but a great land portion also adds so much to the overall trip experience. I also really enjoyed the exploratory dives. Colten calls us his underwater explorer soldiers. I love that. I never feel like that diving anywhere else in the world. Alaska offers such great diving. I love it and want to come back for sure. I have never gone somewhere and said to myself that I want to go back soon. Of all the other trips, I think I will like to go back to Palau another time in the future. But I don't mind not going back until much later in life. This trip, I want to come back very soon. In the next couple years. Alaska diving is great. but it's not just because of alaska. This crew is amazing. I want to come back soon to such a great crew. I wish I can have this crew everytime I go diving.
