Nautilus Under Sea, from the renowned Nautilus fleet of Mexico liveaboards, is a 32m steel-hulled motor yacht cruising some of the best sites of Mexico’s Pacific coast.

Although not a huge boat, there is plenty of space on board for the maximum of 18 guests. The main socializing area is the comfortable air-conditioned saloon/dining area on the main deck. There is also a shaded ‘al fresco’ lounge on the sun deck where you can chill on comfortable furnishings and enjoy the fresh air. The sun deck also features a hot tub, and several sun loungers where you can stretch out and work on your tan.

There is a variety of cabins on board ranging from compact triple share stateroom to a sumptuous upper deck Premium suite, when only the best will do! There is even a Superior cabin which is ADA compatible, so divers with physical challenges can be more comfortable.

Comms features include wi-fi internet and satellite phone, so if you are far at sea around Socorro or Guadalupe you can still stay connected. On the diving side, you will appreciate the spacious and well-organized dive deck, individual storage spaces and large camera table with hoses. There is also nitrox available on board, as well as 15 liter tanks, and Nautilus Under Sea is re-breather friendly.

You must meet at the Cabo Dive Center no later than 19:00 hrs on the evening of boarding. It is located next to the Tesoro Hotel on the walkway of Cabo Marina. Ideally you should drop by the dive center as soon as you get to town to make sure you are fully prepared for the trip (including a complimentary photography workshop at 1 pm). Boarding is around 20:00 hrs. You should dine in Cabo before boarding the boat since only light snacks are served on the first evening.
The boat will spend the last night of the trip in the harbor and disembark the morning of the last day.
