If you want to come face to face with friendly giant Manta rays, swim with playful pods of dolphins, dive with more then 10 types of sharks and even have the chance of meeting Humpback whales while SCUBA diving, Nautilus Liveaboards has got the trip for you! Join the Nautilus Explorer for an amazing liveaboard diving trip to the Revillagigedo Archipelago.
Known for its abundance of life and extremely outgoing and curious marine animals, the Revillagigedo Archipelago boasts 4 volcanic islands with a very unique ecosystem. It has a large population of giant Mantas, which seem to LOVE people and divers. These 20ft/6m gentle giants repeatedly come "check out" divers and snorkelers and grant a once in a lifetime experience.
The islands - San Benedicto, Socorro, Roca Partida and Clarion, and the surrounding ocean are an UNESCO world heritage site, a marine reserve and a national park.
