Nautilus Belle Amie

G0013699 AERIAL opt

The beautiful Nautilus Belle Amie has 17 guest cabins and takes up to 32 guests.  She's big, bright, powerful & designed specifically for the work she's doing in both Socorro & Gudalupe.

 

A word from Dom :  "She's very new, sparkling, super spacious & does the Socorro & Guadalupe runs with grace.  My only caveat is for divers who aren't keen on big boats with lots of divers. Belle Amie has 17 cabins and takes up to 32 people.  If you're looking for that more traditional dive boat experience, cozy & intimate, take a look at Belle's sister-ship (& my old favorite) Nautilus Under Sea ." ..... Dominick Macan

Your cruise logistics


Guadalupe

You have two options for airports for your Guadalupe adventure.You can fly into the San Diego airport (SAN), and then proceed to the Nautilus San Diego Dive Center. Alternatively you can also fly into the Tijuana airport (TIJ).  From the San Diego Dive Center, you will depart at 7:30 pm for the approximate 2 hour transfer to the ship in Ensenada, Mexico. Alternatively, guests may meet the Nautilus team directly in Ensenada.

At the end of your cruise the ship normally arrives back at Ensenada at 2:00PM or a bit later. Guests who met the crew in Ensenada will be be transferred back to the airport in Ensenada. Guests who met them in San Diego will be transferred back to San Diego Dive Center or San Diego Airport. The coach typically arrives in San Diego by 7:00 PM. Please do not book return flights earlier than 9:00 PM.

Socorro

You will fly into the San Jose del Cabo airport (SJD), and then proceed to the Nautilus dive center at the Tesoro Los Cabos in Cabo San Lucas. There you can leave your bags and then tour town and enjoy a nice dinner before boarding the ship. The crew works hard right up to boarding time to get the boat ready so please meet them at the hospitality suite and not at the boat. 

On the final day disembarkation is at 8.30am for transfer back to San Jose del Cabo airport (SJD). We recommend that you book your return flights for 10:00 AM or later.
