We enjoyed 10 beautiful days in Palau. With Nautilus Diving we spent 5 great diving days. The Shop which is run by Steph and Vinny is very well organised. The Stuff is very helpful, friendly and professional! Excellent service throughout. Our daughter enjoyed her bubblemaker with the captain himself and even got to see an octopus - Thanks for that...

We had great 5 days dives in different location. Professional support and service on the boat and in the centre. Stephanie helped us with renting apartment and travel arrengments. Good fun and we felt well supported. Prices also at resanoable level. All of us would like to return and visit more diving places and dive on Maddalena.

We have just completed 5 days diving with Nautilus, and have been overwhelmed with their professionalism and genuine friendliness (the entire team). This was in a week with some challenging sea conditions, not typical at this time of year, but during which the team sought out excellent dive sites in more sheltered areas. I can confirm other reviewers' reports on... More

We completed 8 dives over 4 days with Nautilus. The whole team were extremely professional led by Vinny and Stephanie. The guides were extremely knowledgeable whilst making sure everyone had fun. We were always the first boat at the dive sites and they all provided excellent diving conditions. If/when we visit Sardinia again we will definitely be diving with Nautilus.
