I have been on three different Nautilus boats, and the experience has been incredible. You cant find the experience and knowledge of the different crews anywhere else. Thank you for the great experiences!!!

Stow away benches on the dive deck would be helpful when a large group is on board!

Cecelia brought a smile to my face every morning during coffee time as we danced to the music getting ready for a great day! Stein had much knowledge to share that we all enjoyed. Osa gave great service during cocktail hour and meals! Marianne was a joy to dive with and had amazing energy! All staff worked VERY hard!

I think you could ask to each person to present herself after the speech to presentation of Capitan. it should be easier after that to have a easy contact with everybody, especially when you don't understand well English language.

for me it was a team and I don't want to separate one person. everybody worked like a very good team. this is the principal quality to have a good trip like we had got.

Celi and Xavi went above and beyond to make sure that we saw creatures under water. They would not stop a dive until they had shown us something amazing. All the divemasters were wonderful.

This was my first liveaboard experience and I expected it to be good but this trip was beyond anything I could have imagined. Everything from the dives to the food was absolutely incredible and I will never forget this week. Having celebrated my birthday onboard made everything more special and I felt very happy and privileged to have this experience.
Any crew standout?
Yes. The hostess Alice was very impressive, she knew everyone´s names and took special care of me with my food restriction. I even had a birthday cake on my birthday that was lactose free!!! The chef also deserves a compliment, the food was always amazing. Also, the divemasters were very friendly and made me feel safe the entire time, especially Xavi, Ivan and Martin.

Mario was great at making the dive comfortable for anyone. He accomodated the better divers as well as the less good divers so that everyone could enjoy their dives. He also showed exceptional respect for marine life, which to me is very important. The other dive master we dove with, Annie, was also very calm and pleasant to dive with. Both had a great positive energy that was great to enjoy. I did not get the chance to dive with Ronald, but he was always available to help out if we had any issues or problems above water. Cat went above and beyond to make our stay on the boat pleasant and she made it feel like home. She was always available to caster to the needs of all the guests and remembered all our preferences, which was really nice! The captain, deckhands and engineer were also very friendly and helpful with the everything, whether it was with the dive equipment or general questions we may have had.

I would brief the UK travel agents more on all the details of the trip. For example my UK travel agent did not tell me that for $1200 i could have had a 121 divemaster for the whole trip. Had I known i would have definitely booked one.

All of them in their own way. in some parts I struggled with the diving, but the crew were a massive help and I had a great time.

While I enjoyed diving with all the guides, Celine was one of the best dive guides I have ever dived with. I was consistently impressed that every single crew member demonstrated a positive and approachable attitude regardless of how much was asked of them. It is evident the crew works very hard to ensure we have a good trip, but to see them all pleasant and smiling and friendly throughout all of it elevates this experience from good to exceptional.

During dive briefings on the sundeck, it would be helpful if the divemasters did not turn away from divers when explaining or pointing out certain features of the dive site. It was difficult to hear their instructions or explanations if they were facing away from the divers who were listening.

Celi, Ivan and Martin went out of their way to create pleasant profiles and to find creatures!

Just a huge thank you!!! This has been a trip of a lifetime!!! Would definitely recommend and hope to come on another Nautilus liveaboard soon!!!

The crew all together was amazing. the dive masters are all amazing at not only being kind and personable with their guests, but also incredibly knowledgeable about the boat it self, the dive sites, and the animals we saw. Watching them point out animals before they even came into view was just as impressive as it was helpful. I have to give a special thanks David because of the wonderful photos he took and how awesome it was to watch him helping one of the older guests, Don. Also what I learned about diving for the dive masters Carla and Martin was unbelievably helpful which allowed me to become a safer and more conscious diver and I will use that knowledge I gained for years to come. Also Alicia, Cecilia, Anna deserve a very special thank you. They worked incredibly hard while still maintaining an awesome moral the entire trip. i think the hole team deserves a raise!!! What an amazing group of people!!!!

The team worked extremely well together which is one of the biggest aspects that stood out. Jose creates a great culture on the boat. Everyone was proactive and took personal responsibility of everything. Each crew member supported eachother in completing tasks that wouldn´t "be their job.” It shows great leadership. I hope corporate is proud of the team on the Under Sea.

Everyone was very attentive to all my needs. It was the best liveaboard trip I have done to date.

Loved the passion and deep knowledge of marine life of Ron. Thoroughly enjoyed learning more about those gorgeous animals (not only during the presentation but also during chats after diving.) Loved how caring, proactive and willing to provide great Cat was. Even when 10 people wanted something of her at the same time, she always stayed so friendly and tried to fulfill all our wishes. In general, I loved how all of the crew were doing their (very intense) jobs with a big smile on their faces. Thanks so much for that :)
