Boat Description

The Nautilus Explorer is a 35 metre steel liveaboard, exploring the Guadalupe and Socorro Islands. Onboard 13 cabins accommodate up to 25 guests. On the lower deck, nine staterooms convert to either twin or double bed cabins while three superior suites and one premium suite are located on the hot-tub deck. For complete luxury, stay in the premium suite which has a floor to ceiling picture window and a feature full-size bath-tub! There is ample room to read, relax, or edit images - whether in the separate dining room, main saloon or the upper sun deck. With the Nautilus Explorer, delve into Guadalupe to be submerged in a cage with great white sharks. Alternatively, head to Socorro Island to witness manta rays, 10 kinds of shark, dolphins, and humpback whales in January to April. For those who want to experience both of these incredible experiences, the Nautilus Explorer offers a 15 night cruise where guests can encounter great whites, manta, and dolphin all on the same trip.
