Solmar V is a 112’ luxury live-aboard dive vessel
based in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico since 1992.
The Solmar V is a true four-season
live-aboard that takes advantage of weather patterns
to provide optimal diving year-round.
We journey 250 miles south of Los Cabos
into the eastern Pacific Ocean to the Revillagigedos Islands—more
commonly known as the Socorro Islands—to dance with
the Giant Pacific manta ray, cavort with dolphins, dodge
seven different species of sharks and thrill to an occasional
lucky interaction with the migrating humpback whale population.
This is remote, adventure diving at its finest.
The Sea of Cortez is one of the youngest
and most fertile seas on earth, containing over 850 species
of reef fish, as well as the famous flying mobulas and
an assortment of schooling pelagics and tropicals. We've
been diving the Sea of Cortez for over 25 years, and we
call it home.
In August and September we are based
in Ensenada, Mexico and follow the ultimate apex predator
to Guadalupe Island, 180 miles offshore. This is rapidly
becoming the world's best location to dive in custom-built
cages with great white sharks. Because we use hookah
instead of scuba tanks on these trips, you do not need
to be a certified scuba diver to enjoy the rush of going
eyeball to eyeball with a 16' great white shark.
