ABOUT NAUTILUS EXPLORER LIVEABOARD
Nautilus Explorer is a ship of 40 meter of length build in 1999. The ship was custom designed with the highest possible level of safety and comfort for divers. The amazing design utilizes every square foot of available space. Nautilus has received the ultimate confirmation of seaworthiness and safety certification: the SOLAS passenger certificate for short international voyages.
From November until end of May Nautilus explorer travels to Socorro Island once or twice per month and sometimes combines the trips with dive days at Guadalupe Island and sea of cortez. Nautilus carries for Socorro Trips up to 24 divers. The Nautilus was carefully designed with a heavy and strong steel construction and extensive soundproofing to be safe and comfortable.The vessel’s bulbous bow, hullform and passive stability system provides for a remarkably easy ride while heavy-duty commercial grade systems ensure that you have a smooth-running voyage.
After departure you will be sailing for 24 hours in open to the Revillagigedo Archipelago. Sea conditions are usually fairly benign and the Nautilus Explorer is a heavy steel stabilized ship. However we still recommend anti-seasickness medication for anyone who is worried about the motion.
