Nautilus Gallant Lady (Liveaboard)
Home to the Giant Friendly Manta Rays!
The Sea of Cortez is an amazing place with unique charm – and generally calm water. Diverse experiences in this marine protected area can include whale sharks that are resident seasonally off La Paz, the sea lions at Los Islotes, Humpback whales still show up every winter, huge schools of panamic fish are as abundant, hammerhead sharks at El Bajo and Los Animas, an excellent chance of seeing bull sharks at Cabo Pulmo, stunning number of whale sharks at Bahia de Los Angeles in the northern sea of cortez and mantas at La Reyna. They finally figured out where the humboldt squid are and it’s
quite a trek to get there!
Imagine a 116 foot yacht that accommodates small groups of 12 divers in 6 large suites. Our beautiful Gallant Lady combines the luxury of a yacht with the thoughtful design of a dive deck built for divers.

With 1700 horsepower Caterpillar engines and hydraulic stabilizers, the Lady can speed you wherever you want to go in great comfort. Water temperature averages 77 degrees this time of the year.
