Nautilus Gallant Lady

Nautilus Gallant Lady

The new Nautilus Gallant Lady adds to the Nautilus Fleet & increases the onboard spaces available in Sea of Cortez, Cabo Pulmo & Socorro. She accomodates just 12 guests in 6 large & luminous suites.

"Gallant Lady has just gone into the water in December 2018.  I think she's an exciting addition to the mix in this region, partly due to her itineraries which offer new & exciting options in the Sea of Cortez .... and partly because she takes only 12 divers.   For me, diving with only a dozen people is ideal & brings back happy memories of the dive boats I worked on in the '80's. I'm genuinely looking forward to my first cruise on Gallant Lady !"   ...   Dominick Macan

Elegant 12-passenger yacht


After a total refit, the Gallant Lady, a 116 foot Broward motor yacht built in 1982, is ready to sail with a lucky 12 passengers on board accomodated in 6 large luxurious suites. She offers the advantage of being chartered by private groups seeking more of a luxury yacht experience with comfort and relaxation high on the agenda in addition to spectacular diving.

She is topped by a crow's nest, great for spotting animal movements. Below that you'll find the wheelhouse (open 24 hours a day to guests!) and the sky lounge complete with bar and the hot tub. In addition on this deck you will also find the sun deck with cushioned loungers perfect for snoozing whilst catching a tan or looking out for wildlife.  

Housed on on the main deck are the cozy dining room and interior main salon with wrap-around views, TV, DVD, sound system and plenty of CDs and movies. The spacious well equipped dive deck and 2 superior suites with convertible king bed or 2 twins are also found on this deck.

The lower deck offers 3 superior & 1 premium suite, all with convertible king/twin beds and ensuite bathrooms plus air-conditioning.

Plenty of other sports are available depending on your itinerary including mountain biking, kayaking, paddle boarding, desert hikes and walks on the beach. At night you can even hunt for fresh turtle nests in the sand.


What's for dinner ?


The other Nautilus vessels (Nautilus Explorer, Nautilus Belle Amie and Nautilus Under Sea) are all known for their "good eats". Gallant Lady will be no exception. You'll enjoy a combination of Mexican and West Coast North American cuisine all created using the freshest possible ingredients. In addition to the main meals guests will also be tempted by the home baked snacks and drinks on offer between dives. 

Daily meals consist of a pre-dive continental breakfast followed by a full 'hotel style' breakfast after the first dive. Lunch is served with salad and soup of the day and includes: deli style sandwiches with fresh bread, homemade italian style pizzas, fish tacos, burgers, fajitas with fresh salsas, tostadas, quesadillas and lasagna.

Dinner is served plated, buffet or family style. There is a good array of both Mexican and American style meals. Some of the delicious dishes include: street taco night, roast beef, salmon teriyaki, clam alfredo and New York grilled steak.

On board is a wide selection of beer, wine and alcohol from the ship’s bar.

Specialty diets will be accommodated with advance notice to the boat. Just let us know your needs when you book.
