Vancouver, Canada
Nautilus Explorer:
The 116' Nautilus Explorer was launched in 2000 as an expedition yacht and is a very spacious vessel specifically built to cruise B.C. and Alaska in all weather and in great comfort. Guests often comment on the smooth and quiet ride and how nice it is to be on a new, well designed and spotlessly clean vessel.

Diving is our passion and we offer specialized dive trips from March through November. Visits to Port Hardy, Hakai Pass, the Queen Charlotte Islands and the outer coast of Alaska are all on our dive schedule as well as the old favourites like the Gulf Islands, Race Rocks and Campbell River.

Your safety, comfort and enjoyment are our biggest concerns. Our vessel has every kind of Coast Guard certificate you can imagine including SOLAS certification for international voyages, a Load Line Certificate, Health Canada and U.S. Public Health Service approval and a ISM certificate issued by Lloyds Register. My wife Mary Anne, our crew and I invite you to explore both our website and our unique part of the world. We hope that you will join us.

They are a short 15 min. cab ride outside of town and have a restaurant and pool at their resort. The Sea of Cortéz is well known worldwide for its excellent conditions for scuba diving. No other area gathers more magnificent dive sites than the surroundings of La Paz, with three of the most beautiful islands in the gulf, San Jose, Espiritu Santo and Cerralvo, plus countless tiny islets that contribute to a well earned fame of being a place where almost anything can happen at any time. There are 13 different dive sites and each is unique and exotic. The black coral reefs are teeming with life and the macro life is very close with schools of Manta Rays blocking out the sun and hammerheads schooling nearby as well. The privileged location of Cantamar Beach Resort, home of Baja Diving & Service, allows to cut in half the boat rides, insuring more quality time at dive sites.
