For this special trip we have chartered the 105ft (32 meter) Nautilus Under Sea – our favorite vessel for trips to Guadalupe and Socorro! Unlike most of the ships going to Guadalupe the Under Sea takes only 18 guests making for a more intimate experience. She’s a beautiful ship with an incredible history that includes starting her life as a submarine tender to Dr Perry of Perry Oceanographic. She then spent her time as one of the most famous dive boats in the world working in Cocos Island and creating IMAX adventures in the South Pacific. In 2017 she was completely refurbished with a new superstructure, and extended sundeck, and a brand new stability system. Beyond that she was also kitted out to fit the comfort and luxury that the Nautilus brand is known for including a hot tub, full bar, huge camera tables, a spacious dive deck, and so much more. Her heavy steel construction and custom stabilization system is designed perfectly for ocean crossings and makes her ride smooth and comfortably. She’s also kitted out with a wide range safety features that you normally don’t see on liveaboards as well as being ISM safety certified.
We’ve made it easy with 2 options for getting to the ship! You can either fly into San Diego, California and catch a shared transfer to Ensenada to meet the ship through Nautilus or you can fly into Tijuana, Mexico and hop an Uber, bus or taxi to Ensenada and meet us directly at the ship. We can also organize private transport for you from San Diego or Tijuana to the ship if you prefer. We will meet for ship check in at the Hotel Coral in Ensenada at 7pm. A roundtrip transfer through Nautilus costs $100 USD, but they give you the $100 back as a voucher to use on board for rental gear, gift shop, or bar.
