Nautilus Trips


The Nautilus Trips plugin shows available trips aboard the Nautilus Liveaboards vessels and allows people to book a trip
right on your website.

*An approved Nautilus Dealers account and API Key are required for proper operation of this plugin!
If you are not already a Nautilus Dealer you can apply on the Nautilus Dealers contact form

Choose a subset of trips, destinations, vessels, or allow all available trips to be displayed on your website.
Guests can see details of destinations and book a trip right into Nautilus Liveaboards systems under your Dealer Account.

This plugin accesses an external API from Nautilus Liveaboards to obtain real-time trip availability data. To do so, the
website must be able to perform server-to-server communication. A valid Dealer API key is required for these API requests.

Install this plugin like you would any other WordPress plugin.

  1. Upload plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/nautilus-trips directory of your WordPress website, or Add from the
    Wordpress plugins screen.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
  3. Set your Nautilus Dealer API Key and Dealer Email in the Nautilus Trips configuration page
  4. Optionally, select a subset of trips to display on your site. For best results, we recommend allowing all vessels and
    destinations but maybe you’ve got a particular niche you want to explore.

Why do I need to be a Nautilus Dealer to use this plugin?

We pride ourselves on working for our Dealers – you! It is our job to ensure our dealers are happy, and further, that your
guests are happy and bring you more business. We cannot do that if we don’t know who you are, so we contact all of our
dealers and get to know about them and their businesses. We also require the API key to ensure our API does not get abused,
and to attribute specific requests to specific accounts in our systems.

Where do I get a Nautilus API Key?

You can apply to become a Dealer on the Nautilus Dealers website at and request an API
Key from your Dealer Area at once your Dealer account is approved. Dealers are
typically tour operators, dive shops, or travel agencies that specialize in scuba diving travel, adventure travel, or
liveaboard scuba diving adventures.
