i would spend more time in Roca Partida if it was possible, this place is unreal !! I know it s not easy because of the weather conditions. Are you exploring to find more dive site in the area ?

I spend most of my time with Adil ! His a great guy, knows the place so well and a very talented videographer. I am so grateful to have share this week with him. I was also very impressed by Arturo knowledge of the marine life and how he shares it. He s fun and humble.

Ari was a fabulous Dive master and guide. The best. If I ran a dive boat fleet I would steal him off you. He was a very positive representative for your company. A slow and attentive guide. Always happy and polite. It was an absolute pleasure diving with him

I hadn’t planned any ocean dive trips yet, but back in January, DAN had a trip giveaway, I was one of the lucky winners!! The trip was to Socorro Island on the Nautilus Belle Amie. The Nautilus staff were the best!! They took care of any needs that may have came up, I can’t say enough about them, every meal was excellent, beds were made while we were out, the dive leaders kept us safe with briefings and throughout the dives. Thank you Nautilus crew, Captain TJ and crew for my first and probably the best dive trip I will ever take. Thank you for the trip of a lifetime truly!! Michael Adams

Operation works like well-oiled machine. Outstanding staff. Incredible experience. Sad to leave and will most definitely be back.
Any crew standout?
Yes. Divemasters were 5-star; would dive with any of them anywhere else in the world. Safety was clearly of utmost concern and the divemasters guided me on the best dives of my life (life-changing encounters were made had). In this environment a lot can go wrong and but it was clear that the captain and all crew members were working actively to mitigate risks and provide guests with an extremely safe and rewarding experience. Will 100% recommend this operation to anyone looking to elevate their existence and dive without worries. Thanks for everything.

Thank you for an incredible experience! Everything we saw at our dive sites, and especially the interactions with the mantas, was more amazing than I could have imagined. We will be back!

All of the crew were amazing; we have nothing but awesome things to say about everyone. Laurentina and Adriana were the best hostesses! Ronald, Stein, Pedro, Christian, and Xavi were excellent and awesome divemasters! Julio, Tony, and George were incredible in the kitchen, and we all loved George's marine life dances. :) Captain TJ and First Mate Alejandro were so fantastic about explaining things and keeping everyone comfortable, and Danny was a phenomenol engineer. Everyone was extraordinary, and truly made this trip an experience of a lifetime.

All of the divemasters were exceptional. Rey, Ivan, and Sten made diving so much fun and were always made me feel safe and comfortable. This experience would not have been the same without them. The Captain Adrian also did an amazing job of being friendly and always lending a hand to me if i needed it. Honestly, all of the staff were exceptional. You have an amazing crew aboard this boat.

One of my best dive trip experiences in over 800 dives. Crew was excellent and dives were amazing. We saw just about everything we came to see and more. The crew put us in the right spots and lead us to all the exciting animals. We saw more than enough gaint manta rays, whale sharks, and all other sharks and creatures to be seen. Thanks for the great trip

Ari, Ramon, Hector, Mario, and Arturo were all fantastic Dive Masters! Each dive was very well organized and they took great care of each diver at their own experience level. Each and every crew member was extremely friendly and helpful. Fabi was there to great us each day with her beautiful smile taking great care of whatever we needed. Of all my travels, this has been my favorite live aborad experience so far, on board and underwater. I will not only will be recommending this trip to friends and family, but I hope to be back again soon!

Everyone was hugely professional, friendly and attentive. The smiles and the relaxed atmosphere made us feel instantly at home. My mother was nervous at the start of the trip and has never been a confident diver, but the crew and divemasters and instructors were so gentle and considerate with her that she didn't miss one dive. It does help when you have people like Ari to dive with who was so lovely with her ('The George Clooney of the Sea' according to my mother) and Mario who all the men secretly wanted to be as cool as and all the women couldn't stop looking into those eyes of his! Really special diving made all the most memorable with a great crew. I have already recommended you to friends and want to come back in November. I'll miss Lowe's dry humour, Ramon's sexy salsa moves and Arturo's wonderfully entertaining but also highly educational presentations. Thank you all for your patience, expertise and great attitude. Regards, Francis & Anna

All the crew and diving team were very professional and made their utmost to make our experience an outstanding one. Arturo taught us a lot about the mantas and clarion fish.

I have been on 5 liveaboards before, including Agressor, Spirit of Freedom, and Caribbean Explorer. The Nautilus Explorer is the best so far.

Arturo has great passion for Mantas and Clarions. Ramon´s willingness to share his musical interest. Hector has great humor. EVERYONE works so hard, and still finds time to talk to the guests. The whole team works very well together.

We have been on many liveaboards - the Nautilus Explorer Socorro Island is absolutely the best service we have experienced. The hostesses, Fabi and Dahania, were always available to provide any wish. The DMs are the best. I love that one of the DMs is a marine biologist. I love how the DMs shared their passions. The presentations and education provided made this trip special. The captain and first mate were visible and hands-on at all times. Happy crew equals happy guests!

all the divemasters made a really good job. they were always looking after the divers, and chose the right dive sites. It was my third trip with the Explorer and I really loved it again

The briefing before the night snorkeling with sharks would be better if it was done before dinner, not just 5 minutes before (with a greater detail about conduct of sharks and reasons for not using lights, etc.).
