Custom-built for divers, the Nautilus Belle Amie ship is the largest of the Nautilus Liveaboards’ fleet. With amenities akin to a floating boutique hotel, and a reputation for offering high-level service on board, the Nautilus Belle Amie accommodates 32 guests in 17 en-suite staterooms and suites. On the lower deck are 8 twin staterooms plus one affordable triple occupancy stateroom. The main deck has 2 premium suites, and 6 superior suites are on the wheelhouse deck. Bedding in the suites can be converted to twins or doubles. All rooms also feature individually controlled air-conditioning. 

On the main deck is a large salon and dining area, where a fusion of Mexican and West Coast North American food is served. All dietary requirements, including vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, food allergy options, and quasi-kosher, can be catered to with prior notice. Breakfast, lunch, and snacks are buffet-style, and the evening meal is served plated buffet or family-style. There are two fully-stocked extensive bars on board, which include single malts, microbrews, and a large selection of wine. The large sun deck has space for everyone to enjoy lounging in the sun and a hot tub to warm up in-between dives or enjoy after diving with a drink and snack.

The heavy steel construction with stabilization of the Nautilus Belle Amie liveaboard means she was perfectly designed for ocean crossings to get divers to the world-class dive sites of the Socorro Islands or over to Guadalupe for up-close encounters with great white sharks. From November - June, the Socorro Islands are open to offering some of the best diving in the world. Friendly mantas, dolphins, humpback whales, pilot whales, and up to 10 species of shark are just some of the marine encounters the Socorro Islands offer. Or for those who want to get up close with great white sharks, the Guadalupe season offers from July - November each year. The large dive deck, onboard nitrox, and 3 large dive skiffs ensure an easy diving experience.

Fantastic boat and crew

Crew was exceptional, and many guests who had been on multiple liveaboards had said this was the best crew they've encountered. Special shout-out to Juan David, one of the dive guides. Mantas, sharks, and dolphins were amazing!

A brilliant and truly memorable experience on the Nautilus Belle Amie.

I had a fantastic dive trip on the Nautilus Belle Amie. The diving was superb. The crew were super friendly and helpful. The food was outstanding. The boat was great and safety was a huge priority for the staff. The whole operation was very slick and professional. I look forward to joining the Nautilus Belle Amie for another dive trip in the future!

Great Experience on my Socorro Trip

All dive crew are so all round from leading the dive to other boat duties. My only feed back would be the waiting between 2nd and 3rd dive a little long while the 3rd and 4th dive was a little tight
