Nautilus Belle Amie - Mexico Liveaboards - Dive Discovery Mexico

Luxurious, Stable and Safe Ship

When it comes to your safety and comfort, there is simply no comparison between our beautiful Belle Amie and older, narrow, unstabilized, noisy smaller dive boats. The Belle Amie is very wide in the beam (which is a good thing when it comes to boats!), stabilized with deep draft and a bulbous bow to give you the most comfortable ride possible. Our ships are heavily sound proofed to allow you to have a good nights sleep and equipped with over-size watermakers allowing you to shower as often and as often as you like. The full width superstructure on all 4 decks gives an outstanding amount of space - our over-sized superior and premium suites even have full-size king beds!!

Most important of all, our ships are unique in the dive boat fleet in being built to meet SOLAS safety standards. Our certified ISM Safety Management System is audited annually by BV Bureau Veritas and provides the ultimate in dive boat safety. These are the same standards used by the largest cruise ships in the world. The Belle Amie has accommodations that suit all preferences ranging from a luxurious VIP double premium suite to superior suites, shared or quad staterooms. There is lots of seating for everyone in the lounge, on the partially shaded sundeck and in the dining room. The only bunk beds on the boat are in the quad occupancy stateroom. All other accommodation features side-by-side hotel style beds. Our mission is to cater to your every comfort from super high tech communication, email and internet at sea to stocking a wide selection of beer, wine and single malt scotches in the ship's bar.

DIVING GUADALUPE ISLAND WITH the Nautilus Belle Amie

We are divers. There are loads of great white sharks in the crystal clear waters of Guadalupe Island, Mexico. We believe that the best way to see these magnificent creatures is to descend into their world and interact with them on their own terms, in a natural way from our double-decker submersible cages. Conditions permitting, you can get out from behind the bars on the upper deck of these cages with only a single handrail between you and these amazing apex predators. To go face-to-face with a great white shark in the wild is something you will never forget. Our experienced Dive Masters will be alongside you in the submersible cages to both 'critter point' and for your safety.

NOTE: Great White Sharks are dangerous!! Use of the upper decks of the submersible cages is at the Captain's sole discretion based on our experienced interpretation of what the sharks are doing. You can kneel, sit and crouch on the top of the cages, but a recent amendment to park regulations does currently prohibit standing on top of the cages.
