    Great White Shark Diving at Guadalupe Island Guadalupe Island Great White Sharks, Mexico in October

    Full points for the crew, food. and the diving experience. It is well deserved. The cabin comfort didn't rate full points because we had issues with the central air in the cabins below decks. Our room was too hot while someone else was getting all our cold air. We were offered and accepted an upgrade to the premium cabin, so it ended well for us, and the captain said they will work to resolve this problem in the future. As someone with thousands of dives around the world, and having seen thousands more sharks, I wasn't enthusiastic about diving in a cage, but I also hadn't seen great white sharks before. After this experience, I would do it again. I averaged 4 to 5 hours a day in the cages watching the great white sharks, and they didn't disappoint me. They were very photogenic, with lots of photos and videos made. It is an experience even the "hardcore" divers should try. Bring a drysuit if you have one, or the thickest wetsuit you have. The water is cool, and you'll be able to stay in longer and more comfortably.

    1. Seeing the great white sharks. 2. Seeing Bullet, a very large female that hadn't been seen in the last ten years. 3. Up close encounters with great white sharks.

    Very good
    Great if you like big fish Socorro - Giant Mantas, Sharks and Dolphins, Mexico in December

    Good trip for more experienced divers. A lot of blue water and current but most of the time it is worth the wait and struggle because you see a lot of big fish you only find on some other places. Boat has been refitted and is nice and has good standard. Very nice crew, DMs are experienced and won‘t look after you all the time. Trip to the islands is long and exhausting though especally if the swell comes in. Overall a very good trip to check off some large pelagic fish and sharks.

    amazing crew that went above and beyond Socorro - Giant Mantas, Sharks and Dolphins, Mexico in December

    Nautilus Under Sea is a very comfortable boat, with nice cabins, lots of storage space and very nice bathrooms in cabins. Diving deck organization was perfect, enough space for everyone, large table for cameras. The diving crew was very helpful, enthusiastic, and managed the diving part in an extremely safe and organized manner. Even when the diving conditions were difficult because of the weather, they expertly got everyone in and out of skiffs. All in all, amazing experience of diving with mantas, dolphins, Galapagos, silky sharks and other marine life, which is abundant in the Socorro.
