Two Amazing Adventures

Luxurious, stabilized modern boats built to SOLAS standards

We swim with the friendliest giant mantas in the world, and go face to face with great white sharks. Read about our experiences, guest comments and more here at the Nautilus at Sea blog! Plus special editorials by Captain Mike.

It is special to see an all black manta but to see 3 different ones in the same day is definitely a treat! Socorro, 2012, Mexico.

It was a real great Day in Socorro at Cabo Pierce, the best Dive at the Trip, so far. At the first dive on this day we saw a school of Hammerheads, and it was a really fantastic experience. Three Mantas passed by playing in the bubbles, awesome. Also a lot of Octopus, Morrays, and Jackfish..

Best regards,

Anja and Christian


Hallo Tauchfreunde, mit der Nautilus Explorer ist es eine wahre freude zu reisen, momentan auf Socorro. Die Bedienung, sei es der Koch oder die Crew ist auf einem hohen Niveau ausgerichtet, sehr freundlich und zuvorkomment. Das Essen vorzueglich (1 ˆ 2 kg pro Woche Mehrgewicht). Die Tauchgaenge gut vorbereitet und viele grosse Fische, Mantas, Hammerhaie. Einfach super.

Black Giant Manta Socorro Mexico Nautilus Explorer

Today was a beautiful day at Cabo Pierce. We were greeted by the dolphins as we rounded the point and immediately during the first dive there were 3 mantas just waiting for us. I was dropping off and retrieving divers and during the entire process a giant, all black manta stayed near the surface and played with the divers during their safety stops. I had a chance to go on a swim along the wall and as I was admiring the colorful fish and the contours on the rocks, 2 all black mantas appeared as if out of nowhere. They circled me and came up to the shallows to greet me and I continued my swim as they swam just under me. It is special to see an all black manta but to see 3 different ones in the same day is definitely a treat!
