This sister vessel to the Socorro Vortex offers two seasonal itineraries, with trips to Socorro and Revillagigedo, as well as photography-themed great white experiences in Guadalupe. This roomy and smooth sailing boat is run by divers, for divers, delivering action-packed voyages with outstanding service above and below water, and a chilled out social setting ideal for adventurous and outgoing guests. Dive up to four times a day, snorkel with marine life during your surface intervals, and kick back and relax in total comfort when you aren't busy diving. Whether this is your first liveaboard or your hundredth, you're going to love the Solmar V!
This liveaboard's itineraries cater to all divers, from intermediate explorers and shark enthusiasts to more seasoned adventurers. Some voyages set out for Mexico's most remote diving regions with cool water, ripping currents, and potentially challenging surface conditions. Others allow you to safely and passively observe wildlife from the comfort of a protective surface or submerged cage. Either way, you don't have to be a pro to enjoy your dives! The Solmar V's highly-trained and professional crew is happy to guide all types of guests, offering as much or as little hands-on assistance as you want.
Onboard Solmar V
Solmar V comfortably accommodates up to 22 guests, with well-appointed cabins complete with personal entertainment centres and all the comforts of home. In between dives, you'll find plenty of room to spread out in the generous air-conditioned salon, complete with comfortable seating, a modern media station, and a spacious separate dining room. Three delicious buffet meals are served each day, featuring a variety of global dishes suited to all tastes. Snacks, hot and cold drinks, and fruit are also offered throughout the day, and alcohol is sold once the day's diving has concluded. Above deck, you'll find both sun and shade decks, with loungers and comfortable outdoor seating.
