The Solmar V communicates 24/7 with the shore team, this can be via email, messenger apps and 2 sat phone systems. Although we discourage conducting business while out on your Solmar V expedition, we realize that sometimes it is necessary to communicate with your office or home. Guests are welcome to use our phone system and will be assisted by our captain. Your call will be charged at Satellite minute rates ranging from $4 – $5 U.S. dollars per minute. Remember our phone is primarily for boat operations and emergency use.
