Nautilus Gallant Lady is a 116 ft (35m) long Mexico liveaboard that specializes in diving trips in the Sea of Cortez. The Gulf of California region is famous for big marine life, including whale sharks , huge schools of breaching mobula rays, hammerhead and bull sharks, whales, dolphins and sea lions, as well as a wealth of macro life not normally found in this part of the world.

This motor yacht cruises at up to 15 knots with a maximum of only 12 divers on board. Guests will appreciate the multiple hang-out spaces on board. You can relax in the air-conditioned lounge and dining area which features wrap-around windows so you can drink in the ever-changing views. Wi-fi is available via a top-of-the-line stabilized gyro satellite system.

On the upper deck you can choose to bask under the Mexican sun on the spacious sundeck or luxuriate in the sky lounge's hot tub, with a drink from the bar for added relaxation. Uniquely there is even a crow's nest you can perch in to enjoy the amazing views.

You can choose from 6 large suites, which can be converted between having king-size beds and twin beds. Cabins are on the main and lower deck and all have ensuite bathrooms. 1 even has a full size bath!

On the diving side, Nautilus Gallant Lady is both rebreather friendly and has nitrox on board. Nautilus lost diver devices are used for your safety. As you emerge dripping from the sea, the crew are on hand with drinks and snacks to refresh your scuba-dried mouth. On the non-diving side, unlike other Mexico liveaboard routes, Sea of Cortez trips can also involve kayaking, mountain biking, paddleboarding and hiking in the desert.

How to get there: The MV Nautilus Gallant Lady liveaboard departs in the afternoon from Cabo San Lucas for safaris to the southern areas of the Sea of Cortez. Guests fly into Los Cabos International Airport (SJD), approximately 45 minutes drive from Cabo San Lucas.
You must meet at the Cabo Dive Center no later than 11 am on the morning of boarding. It is located next to the Tesoro Hotel on the walkway of Cabo Marina. Ideally you should arrive the previous day and drop by the dive center as soon as you get to town to make sure you are fully prepared for the trip. A complimentary photography workshop at 1 pm is conducted before boarding Nautilus Gallant Lady around 14:30 hrs. The boat sets sail that afternoon and you can enjoy cocktails as the boat heads north.
The last dive of the trip will be at around 5 pm on the second last day of the trip. Please wait at least 18 hours before flying after diving. You will disembark at around 8 am on the morning of the last day. We recommend you book any outwards flights on that day no earlier than 11 am.
