The Nautilus Explorer is a luxury safari boat specializing in pampering small groups of scuba divers on unique diving adventures up and down the west coast of North America. Destinations include the great white sharks of Guadalupe Island, the giant mantas and dolphins of Socorro Island (Revillagigedo's) and adventures into Alaska and British Columbia. We also visit the Sea of Cortez, the California Channel Islands, Baja California, San Benitos Island and Clipperton Atoll.
Our goal is to facilitate unforgettable experiences whether it is unbelievable intimate interaction with pacific manta rays, going face-to-face with a great white shark in clear blue water at 40 feet or watching a glacier calve into icebergs from the comfort of our hot-tub. Our beautiful small ship was custom designed and built for this work and is exceptionally comfortable with a wide, strong steel hull stabilized for a great ride.
Our "repeat guest" ratio is one of the highest in the liveaboard dive business. The Nautilus Explorer is very comfortable, quiet, professionally crewed and very safe with the same SOLAS passenger certificate and crewing requirements as the largest ocean-going cruise ships in the world. We hope that you will join us and encourage you to call, email or skype us for more information, to request a DVD / brochure or to book you on to your next unique diving vacation!
