“Totally awsome diving - Nautilus boat and crew were the best”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Went with high expectations and they were totally surpassed. Nautilus Explorer boat was great with a good fun crew that were totally organised and efficient but most importantly client focused and friendly (per the dance off between the guests and the crew on the last day!)

Diving was out of this world. Saw galapagos sharks, silkies, hammerheads, mantas mantas mantas, dolphins and had both a baby and a big whale shark up close and personal. Spoilt for choice not knowing in which direction to look a lot of the time.

Would go back in a heartbeat. Many on the boat had 1000+ dives under their belts and said the only place that compares for big stuff is galapagos.

“Fantastic Diving”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

I did this trip in Jan 2013. It was amazing. The manta rays truly do come out and play at the dive sites. We also had a pod of dolphins for about 20 minutes on one dives. There were loads of sharks including hammerheads.

For me the highlight of the trip was humpback whales - they are amazing to watch and we were fortunate to have a mother and calf hang around the boat for nearly a full day. This gave us plenty of chances to snorkel with them. The crew was great and very accommodating.

I look forward to going back.

“Awesome diving”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

Dived with Rocio del Mar. We only had 3 days diving because of the arrival of Hurricane Amanda. What we saw was fantastic. Giant mantas, lots of different shark species including a whale shark, and dolphin. Must go back.

“Diving is excellent”

We dived here with Solmar V and saw Mantas, sharks, dolphins etc. It was really really good diving. We didn't visit the island itself.
