MV Nautilus Belle Amie dive boat review

 

MV Nautilus Belle Amie is one most spacious, luxurious and well-maintained liveaboards operating in the area.

Nautilus Belle Amie liveaboard cruises the Revillagigedos Archipelago (often known as the Socorro Islands), the Sea of Cortez and Guadalupe Island. These rocky, volcanic oceans are developing a reputation as “Mexico’s Galapagos” and a liveaboard vessel is a great way access these amazing dive sites. And, with over 25 years of experience in the area, the staff and crew of this liveaboard know when and where the best diving is on offer. This gives you the best opportunity of seeing some of the best aquatic life in the habitat.

You can check the availability, schedule and prices for this Boat here.

 

 

At 135ft/40m long the purpose built for diving, stable and wide with a deep draft, Nautilus Belle Amie is comfortably proportioned. Comparable with her sister-ship Nautilus Explorer liveaboard, Nautilus Belle Amie was built in 2005 and then subsequently renovated again in 2014 to ensure her high cosmetic and safety standards. She is one of few vessel compliant with the exceedingly high SOLAS standards.
