The Nautilus Explorer - Certified Safe & Sea Worthy

The Nautilus Explorer was custom built and launched in 2000 as a liveaboard expedition dive boat. Her heavy stabilized steel hull provides an easy ride across the open ocean. She is certified to the same exacting international standards as the largest cruise ship, and has earned a SOLAS passenger certificate to voyage anywhere in the world outside of the polar regions, the ultimate confirmation of seaworthiness and safety.

We're also very particular about keeping the Nautilus Explorer ship-shape and spotlessly clean. In 2001, she received ISM certification from Lloyds Register. This is the marine equivalent of ISO 9000 and is your assurance that the ship's organization and support services are all first-rate. The ISM rating also means that the Nautilus Explorer undergoes regular internal and independent external audits to ensure that the vessel is always safe and well maintained.
