Nautilus Under Sea dive boat review

The 27 meters Nautilus Under Sea is a liveaboard sailing to the Guadalupe and Socorro Islands of Mexico. The dive boat is part of the Nautilus fleet and operates shark cage diving as well as regular scuba diving operations. Formerly known as the Under Sea Hunter, the vessel has undergone a full refit in 2016 and changed name.

Furthermore, if you head outside, you will find a roomy sundeck and lounging areas as well. The sundeck is partially shaded so you can read or nap peacefully. Of course, you can use one of the loungers and enjoy the sun as well as the beautiful view of Mexico!

Vessel Layout

The Under Sea is the newest addition to the Nautilus Explorer Fleet. Indeed, this means that the Nautilus Explorer liveaboard is the sistership of the Under Sea. If the Explorer was built in 2000, the Under Sea, which just wen through a full refit, doesn’t have much to envy. Hence, the Under Sea is smaller and offers a more personal and customizable experience.

  1. Very bad experience, No refund after the CoronaCrisis. The boat scheduled for the end of March never left the port and they kept my money. They only offered a 40% voucher for a next trip keepnig the previous trip.

    Pathetic attitude
    Please avoid !!

  2. Same problem here, they do not answer my mails asking for a refund. I was so expecting for this trip, We were coming from France but the airport closed and they said “Mexico is safe, come and dive” … they stole our money.
