Nautilus Liveaboards Cancels 2022 Great White Shark Trips to Guadalupe Island


Nautilus Liveaboards announced it has been forced to cancel the rest of the company’s 2022 Great White Shark trips to Guadalupe Island as a result of the ongoing closure of the Guadalupe Island Biosphere.

“It’s really frustrating. CONANP, the national park service, has argued successfully for adjournments of the most promising court hearings to reopen Guadalupe to September 27th, October 12, 13 and 14th respectively. They need ‘more time to prepare.’ We are really sorry but with this news, it seems the only option is to cancel the rest of our 2022 white shark season. We know that our clients trusted us with their vacation time and their vacation plans and those plans are now wrecked. We feel very distressed for our clients, our service providers and everyone in our company.”

Consequently, Nautilus is varying its terms and conditions “to assist affected guests with rebooking onto any future trip with full $$ credit.”

Specifically, the two options Nautilus is offering are:

* “Option A: Full $$ credit towards a future Guadalupe trip or any other Nautilus or Baja Expeditions adventure.

* “Option B: Take advantage of one or more of the discounted REVENCE trips . . . as well as our additional special offers unique for Guadalupe clients. Clients booking onto a 2022 REVENGE trip will also receive a $1000 [~€996] discount on their next Guadalupe great white shark trip.”
