Nautilus Dive Adventures Launches Expert-Led Photo Trip to the Socorro Islands in April

Nautilus Dive Adventures is delighted to announce a unique photo expedition to the remote Socorro Islands this April. Taking place from between 7 – 15 April 2021, join Adobe Lightroom expert Erin Quigley and Backscatter photo pro David Serradell aboard luxury dive boat Nautilus Explorer to hone your photography skills while experiencing some of the best big animal diving on earth. Whether new to underwater photography or a seasoned pro, this expedition will enable guests to learn the secrets to getting the perfect underwater photo in a truly unique setting. Guests will have the opportunity to photograph giant pacific manta rays, ten species of shark (from fevers of scalloped hammerheads to whale sharks), bottlenose dolphins, schooling jacks, yellowfin tuna and so much more.

Erin, who is an Adobe ACE certified imaging pro, award-winning underwater photographer and video editor, and founder of GoAskErin.com; and David, passionate ocean conservationist, veterinarian and one of Backscatter’s top underwater photographers, will be on hand to assist with underwater photo techniques, offer technical support, and teach post-production workflow in Adobe Lightroom. “Historically, this is the best week of the Socorro season for diver encounters with humpback whale mommas and calves. There is no guarantee, of course, because it’s mother ocean, but over the last 20 years, we have found that second week of April is when the new mommas are most relaxed around divers before they begin the long trek north to BC and Alaska,” says Mike Lever, President of Nautilus Dive Adventures.

The luxury liveaboard features spacious rooms and cabins, two upper-floors, a sundeck and a hot-tub deck, a main salon with dedicated PC and Mac computers and a 42inch plasma TV, and top-notch dining services.
