THE NAUTILUS UNDER SEA

Built in 1968 for Perry Oceanographic as a research vessel, the Nautilus Under Sea (105 ft x 24 ft) was refitted in 2017 as a liveaboard with massive upgrades over a period of five months by the Undersea Hunter Group. Today, this ship has been expertly designed to handle the open ocean with custom-built, 0-speed stabilizers. Nautilus Under Sea is SOLAS and ISM certified dive boat in steel construction and is stabilized for comfortable ride. You won’t feel a thing while traveling with this liveaboard.

  • Giant rays, sharks, dolphins and humpback whales, this amazing trip offers the best of the best when it comes to close encounters with some of the ocean's largest and most exciting creatures.
  • Socorro Island is big animal diving at its best - dolphins, humpback whales (Jan-Apr), tuna, whale sharks (Nov-Dec), hammerheads, up to five other species of sharks and, of course, giant manta rays.
  • We call them the 'Friendly Giants' because they are 21 feet across, but they are famous and unique in the world for up close and intimate interaction with divers.
  • A liveaboard that enables you to get up close and personal Giant blankets, dolphins and Humpback whales.
  • This is prime "bait ball" season, which is the only time of year we see large schools of silky sharks and sometimes pilot whales.
  • Over five full days you will be able to experience some of our favorite sites in Socorro and Roca Partida including The Canyon, the Boiler, Red Rocks, Partida Rock, Cabo Pearse, Punta Tosca and Roca Oneal. 
  • We know that many of our guests want the option of as many dives as possible and we strive to offer an average of 4 dives a day, other than the day that we do our mandatory check-in at the local navy base when you will likely have the option of 3 dives plus our world-famous silky shark night snorkel.
  • Our roots are in the cold, current-swept waters of British Columbia and Alaska and we have always catered to experienced self-reliant divers looking for complete freedom on their dives. These are usually first in the water.
  • We love buddying up with new fun looking for the reassurance of being with a dive master from the time they start gearing up until they are back on the big boat.
  • Most divers are somewhere mid-spectrum between these 2 groups and we make sure they are very well looked after as well!
  • Note that several dives may be difficult and  for different levels of experience.
  • The number of dives on offer is subject to weather, the whims of Mother Ocean and crowding by other dive boats

  • Of course, it's always your option to find a nice quiet place to relax with a book, have a nice snooze, or maybe have a splash in our sparkling clear hot tubs.
