SY Nautilus

SYNautilusExt1 opt786

The SY Nautilus is a beautiful sailing/motor yacht licensed as both a naturalist & diving boat.  She offers amazing trips in the "old style" & dives the Central & Southern Islands.  Sail & dive during the day, overnight in charming hotels on the Southern Islands.

"For families & less experienced divers, SY Nautilus provides a wonderful way to explore & dive the Galapagos Islands.  Her itineraries do not include Darwin and Wolf  ... but concentrate on the central islands where the waters are far less challenging.  Valuable diving experience can be gained here while still living the immense excitement of the Galapagos Islands.  Vicente and his crew put together magical itineraries for their guests.  Sail, dive and explore during the day .... sleep in the comfort of a hotel.  The best of all worlds.  I highly recommend this option if you're still gaining experience."   ...   Dominick Macan

Unique & lovely

Dive and Trek the Southern Islands of Galapagos aboard the SY Nautilus. A great value for a 7-night dive cruise and particularly inviting for a family dive adventure in Galapagos.

There is now only one boat in the Southern Islands of Galapagos that can combine a diving trip with land visits.  Her 7-day diving itinerary is one of the best values in the Islands.
