Baja Expedition Employment


Are you someone who likes to have fun, works hard, and takes pride in knowing that your guests just had one of the best trips of their lives? Will you buy into our relentless focus on safety and process? Would you like to be part of a team that almost becomes like family, without any of the politics or backbiting common on some boats?

Do you desire a fixed schedule of a month on and a month off? The pay we offer is among the best on any dive boat anywhere, and tips can be quite awesome and always appreciated.

At Nautilus, we are focused on delivering excellence in guest experience. Our focus includes interactions with some of the most charismatic animals on the planet, such as giant mantas, super-friendly dolphins, whale sharks, schooling hammerheads, and nine other species of sharks. You can also experience the sight of giant schools of mobula rays, orcas, the Mexico sardine run, marlin, and much more.

If you are interested in working in Baja Mexico and Costa Rica and want to contribute to our team, submit your application today.

Mate Job 2023

While we encourage our deckhands, hosties, and dive guides to upgrade to STCW, we also offer direct entry mate positions as chief officer. Leadership ability is important, and professionalism along with a focus on safety and processes are a must. You need to be the captain’s 2ic, whether it’s leading the deck team, standing night watch, or helping fill tanks. It’s even better if you have a strong desire to become a captain with us.


We don’t care how many dives you have. What matters most is your attitude and your fit with our culture of cheerfully working as long as it takes to give our guests the time of their lives while keeping everyone safe. Experienced and mature dive guides have found a long-term home here. Young individuals with 250 dives have worked super hard with us and are on their way to their mate’s tickets.


Do you know what white glove service is? Do you have server and bar experience? That’s even better, but what matters most to us is a genuinely warm personality combined with super attention to detail. If you truly care about doing your best to ensure every detail of our guests’ experience goes just right, then send us your CV!


Nautilus Liveaboards Crew

“Can you fix things? Are you happy to get your hands dirty? Do you want your engine room to be spotless and machinery working perfectly? If so, call or email us!”

A fair and even-handed manager responsible for smoothly running crew operations on multi-million dollar ships, reporting directly to the senior managers of the company? Will you buy into our processes and safety management systems? You need to be a scuba or free diver for sure. Being a captain is hard work but extremely rewarding, and we offer some of the highest wages of almost any dive liveaboard boat on the planet.
