We were on board the Nautilus for a diving trip to Isla Guadalupe and see some white sharks. The experience overpass our expectations, the service and safety is a priority. Looking forward to go with them to Socorro.

The bands worked for some, but it did not work for my wife. I used Dramamine, and that helped out a lot. Having said that, the only days you would get seasick is getting there and getting back. None of the experience... More
