Nautilus Explorer: Belle Amie liveaboard
September 19 - 24, 2020

Descend into the realm of the magnificent great white shark and interact with them on their own terms off Guadalupe Island!

Trip Leader: Mark Duvall

Guadalupe Island, Mexico, is the top destination for great white shark encounters. This small volcanic island located in the Pacific 240 kilometers (150 miles) off the west coast of Mexico’s Baja California peninsula outperforms both South Africa and Australia with shark-seeing consistency and watching conditions. Only Guadalupe Island can boast shark viewing in beautiful clear blue water with 40 – 45 meter / 125 – 150 foot visibility. The crew recently counted 108 Great White Sharks in the bay where they stage the submersible cage diving operations guaranteeing unforgettable encounters.

A liveaboard dive boat is only as good as its crew and the Belle Amie has some of the best and most experienced staff in the business. The boat arrives on station early so that you can have a nice relaxing dinner and a restful sleep in a still, calm and quiet anchorage. Cages open at 6:30 a.m. the next morning. Guests who are certified divers will have the opportunity to make 3 submersible dives every day.
