This is day 4 and my week aboard the Nautilus Swell is flying by. It’s been many years since I’ve done any cold water diving and I’d forgotten how prolific and vibrant the life can be in these northern waters. The Nautilus Swell is based in Port Hardy just now and the dives in this area are justly renowned for the variety, abundance and beauty of the flora and fauna. Quite amazing.
The Swell, a memorable and beautiful old tug, comfortable and capable, it works like clockwork under Captain Tim who know all the spits, tides and currents. Mate Jordan keeps the systems turning over, Divemaster Tiare makes our dives safe, effortless and productive, Chef Oliver turns out 3 innovative and delicious meals a day and Hostess Renea (also a qualified divemaster) keeps us fed and hydrated in a most gracious manner. A well run, well equipped outfit. Highly recommended by this guest.
