The 135ft (41m) long, steel-hulled Nautilus Belle Amie has a wide beam, a deep draft and a bulbous bow and is heavily sound-proofed. This results in a stable, comfortable Mexico liveaboard experience for the maximum 32 guests. This motor yacht is built to meet SOLAS safety standards, is audited annually by BV Bureau Veritas, and provides free Nautilus lifeline lost diver devices. This all provides peace of mind on diving trips to the legendary Socorro Islands and the shark haven of Guadalupe Island.

You can make new friends on the sun deck while sipping drinks from the convenient bar or relax on one of the many loungers taking in views of the Pacific Ocean. The main deck features an additional bar, air-conditioned lounge and dining area, where guests are served delicious international and Mexican inspired meals. These spacious communal liveaboard areas are practical and conveniently located next to the spacious diving deck where you'll prepare for each exciting dive.

Cabin accommodation ranges in style and price, with all cabins having ensuite bathroom facilities. All cabins, except the 4-share cabin, have side by side hotel-style beds or full size king beds. The extra large width of the decks can really be appreciated in the spacious cabins. You can shower for hours with the unlimited water-making capacity.

Diver facilities include hot water showers on the dive deck, camera rinse tanks, nitrox and all you need for your rebreather diving. You will also receive a free CD of stills and video from your trip, so you will have a permanent reminder of your awesome Mexican liveaboard experience and your wisdom at choosing Nautilus Belle Amie. Unlike other misleading prices quoted online, ours include the 5% mandatory Mexican VAT.
