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.

I was immediately cruised by a very large and apparently curious silver tip shark.

Another day, another magical dive from the Nautilus Explorer- this time at Roca Partida.  This small, twin-peaked, guano-covered pinnacle rises up from a depth of 11,000 feet and provides a home for so many different species of fish and sharks you could write an entire species ID book on it alone.  First Mate Shaun and I jumped in for a quick dive in between guest dives and were almost immediately cruised by a very large and apparently curious silver tip shark, and throughout the dive we continued to be inspected by numerous Galapagos, silky and white tip sharks… Shaun caught a quick glimpse of a hammerhead too, but I was not so lucky.  Throughout the dive, I was keeping a sharp lookout for the pod of dolphins and 2 giant mantas that were playing with our guests on an earlier dive, but it seems that was a morning show only… not that I’m complaining – each and every time I get in the water it is an incredible experience no matter which creatures come out to play.  I can’t wait for the next one!
