This was the most sensational trip of my life, and I don't think it's even close. Since I was young, I've always been fascinated by the spectacular Great White Shark , and for about 2 years, I had been researching trips to get in the water with them. I had settled on Guadalupe Island due to its proximity to the... More

Was aboard the Nautilus Explorer October 30-November 3, 2016. The 20 hour boat ride to the island wasn't bad at all. Calm seas. The rules the boat was supposed to follow had just changed a few days before our charter due to several instances of sharks getting in the cages. The open upper cages (on top of the submersible cages)... More

Loved this boat and this trip! Despite some seasickness, I had an awesome time and fell in love with the great whites of guadalupe. The Belle Amie is a new boat with a great crew who all love the sharks as well. This is a must do trip for anyone!

The entire experience was over the top excellent and far exceeded my expectations. Boat is new, spacious and well laid out; crew is competent, helpful, gracious and friendly; food is excellent; cage diving is surreal, exhilarating and extremely well organized to optimize dive time. Diver of 38 years with 500+ dives. Highly recommend this company and the Belle Amie.

Had the trip of my life on the beautiful Nautilus Belle Amie celebrating our 16th wedding anniversary. Our suite (Rosario) was spacious and comfortable. The food was fantastic and you never go hungry. The captain and crew worked hard to make sure you were safe and happy and they truly added to the experience. They post cage schedules nightly for...

We saw 9 sharks day 1 and all were curious and very entertaining. We have such respect for these amazing sharks. Day 2 and 3 were just... More

Diving with the great white sharks is a bucket list experience and this did not disappoint and better than imagined. The Nautilus Explorer is an excellent boat and crew with great service - food, dive masters, hostesses, captain. To be up close to these majestic animals was amazing.

There is nothing bad I can say about the Nautilus Belle Amie, it was the most amazing experience - from the white sharks to the boat and crew, everything was fantastic. The boat was the best in the cove. The other three looked much smaller and junky, I hated to think about their trip to/from since the seas were fairly... More
