The captain and crew were extremely professional, friendly, and overall a great group to travel with. We would highly recommend this trip.

It was not clear about getting DiveAssure from your website. I purchased Gold and thought this came with $100 towards rental, gift shop , etc. Learned that this was only for Elite. No big deal but might want to make that clear for future customers
Any crew standout?
Nearly all. Particularly Pedro, Martine, Dani, Alicia, Engineer, Miguel. also, in your office, Mary Anne and Jessica were fantastic. Mary Anne was really helpful in adjusting our trip timing due to delays on our part. Went beyond the call of duty and very pleasant about everything

Maybe the gift shop could be open a bit longer or some other time during the trip. 15 Minutes were a bit close since many people wanted to buy merchandise and it took some time until everyone could check out the available items.

All the crewmembers did a great job! Especially all the divemasters were amazing.

I’m really thankful that you were able to make this trip happen! Your COVID protocols gave me the confidence to pick up where I left off pre-pandemic, and I will recommend your company to everyone who expresses an interest in this type of diving

Alice and Jenny were exceptionally attentive and friendly; wonderful job! Martin, Mary Ann, Pedro, and Selina were always eager to help, both on deck and in the water. And they made everything look fun!

It's impossible to single anyone out because the entire crew was spectacular. This was a truly special experience and I'll be eternally grateful for it.

Would have benefitted from a bit more safety briefings regarding the submersible cages - I.e. what to do when dive master is in trouble or lines get cut, emergency escape, etc. wonderful trip! Experience of a lifetime!!

Dont change a thing. Trip exceeded my wildest expectations!
Any crew standout?
All of them. Literally EVERY SINGLE ONE is now like family. My 1st time diving ever. Ivan was a BOSS! Made me feel SUPER comfortable in the water. Yann was the energy of the ship...always smiling, always happy, contagious energy, Kay was waiting with a huge smile and warm welcome coming up from every dive. Pascal had so much knowledge to share, SOOO passionate. Learned so much from him and the KING of shark wrangling. Maryanne also always smiling, always happy to instruct or help. Nuvia and Iris were UNBELIABLEABLY amazing!! Everything we needed or asked for they could not accommodate faster and more friendly. Shep was the MAN! Always keeping us informed and crusising steadily. JULIO.... THE MAN!! Food off the charts! Id be super later for breakfast, lunch or dinner but sure enough it would be sitting there all wrapped up and waiting for me. DELICIOUS! Whole crew, deckhands, staff, freakin EVERYONE was top notch. Cheers and thank you for the trip of a lifetime!

Yes, all of the crew was fantastic and wonderful. They seemed really passionate about their job and the sharks. They always put our needs first and helped make this trip absolutely amazing.

Divemasters Ivan and Yann were so incredibly patient and understanding with helping me get into the water. I came on this expedition to help confront my phobia of the ocean and being in the ocean again and thanks to Yann and Ivan I was able to work my way up from only a 1 minute dive to an hour on my last day. I could not be more grateful or thankful for everyone that helped me this trip, experience of a lifetime.

The entire experience was incredible. I had extremely high expectations coming into this "trip of a lifetime" and the Nautilus crew far exceeded anything I could have imagined. I will absolutely be taking future trips with Nautilus and recommending this boat and crew to everyone even remotely considering this sort of thing!
Any crew standout?
Every member of the crew was absolutely outstanding. The divemasters were unparalleled - remembering my ear sensitivity from one submersible dive to the next, pointing out sharks when I was inevitably looking in the wrong direction, adjusting weights as we went along, etc. Not to mention that Yann and Pascal are unrivaled bait wranglers! Nubia and Iris were also incredible - keeping track of every guest's eating schedule and feeding us on the dive deck, the sun deck, and literally anywhere else we might be. To say nothing of the level of cuisine coming out of a ship kitchen!

We will absolutely be back, and on other Nautilus trips!
Any crew standout?
All of the crew were amazing. Nubia and Iris went above and beyond to make sure everyone had enough to eat and drink the entire trip. It was wonderful to get out of the cold water and have a warm cup of soup or hot cocoa all ready for us. The divemasters, Ivan, Marianne, Kay, Yann, Pascal, were so helpful in getting in and out of the cages and pointing out everything there was to see. Captain Shep changed dive sites to maximize our experience when we had some rocky weather, and kept us up to date on the schedule throughout the trip. Everyone made the trip of a lifetime for us!

I have a history of ear and sinus difficulties so regulating my ears can be a bit of an issue at times. JC was willing to go down at a slower pace while monitoring my regulation so I could go in the submersible tank. The captain and the entire lineup were fun and friendly, All were happy to accommodate. Stein was a wealth of knowledge and was always happy to give great facts on the trip. He was very personable. Both of the hostesses were very caring and happy to accommodate!

The Captain, the Hostesses, and the divemasters are all so nice and welcoming. They all went out of their way to make you feel comfortable and at home on the boat. I enjoyed talking to Stein about sharks and hear about how passionate he is!

I've wanted to go to Guadalupe Island ever since I was a boy and wanted to be a marine biologist. Although I never became a biologist, the dream always stayed with me.. This trip was better than I could have imagined. Thank you Nautilus!

Liked it so much that once we get down we'll start planning Socorro for next year, hopefully with the same ship and crew!!!
Any crew standout?
Absolutely everybody in the crew made an extraordinary impression on me. Would not change anything on the trip and next year I'll be coming back and would love to have the same crew. Shark 101 by Pascal had great information and the final parody video by David was hilarious. Special thanks for all the attention received by Nubia and Iris, they're amazing!!!

I also appreciated Jessica in the main office. I know I may have been a bit difficult in this process but she was very patient, understanding, and responsive.

This trip was a dream come true! I was so grateful that this year took place, and even this trip was different than expected with the weather and people backing out. But of that made this trip super special.
