Boat Description

Solmar V caters for 22 guests in 12 cabins. There are 10 standard twin/double cabins and 2 singles. All cabins feature ensuites and AC. The dark wood, green leather and carpet throughout gives the dining room a touch of class. The living room has sofas and a large TV for those wishing to relax in the evenings. The large sundeck on the roof, with both shaded and non-shaded areas, is the ideal place to sunbathe between dives on one of the loungers. The dive deck is spacious, with equipment bins and a camera table. The Mexican Pacific offers some of the best diving in the world if you love encounters with big pelagics. Between August and October, Solmar V visits Guadalupe for thrilling cage diving with great white sharks. For the rest of the year, she journeys south to the Socorro Islands. Here you might encounter dolphins, giant oceanic manta rays, over 10 species of shark (including schooling hammerheads, whale sharks and oceanic white tips) and even migrating humpback whales or orcas!
