Comments Great trip on the new Nautilus Belle Amie. The boat is very spacious with extra large cabins with double beds. As usual, the food was amazing and the crew gracious. The diving was some of the best ever but be prepared for climbing in and out of the pangas with typical ocean swells and current. We saw sharks, dolphins and mantas on most dives. The mantas were very curious and stayed with the divers for almost the entire dive.
