Part of the Pelagic Fleet, the Solmar V runs diving cruises to the Socorro Islands and Guadalupe Island. The ship travels with a 10-member crew and features the largest dive deck and camera table of all liveaboards operating in the Sea of Cortez. The ship offers two cabin categories, superior and standard, as well as single cabins for solo divers. Stateroom feature air conditioning, ensuite bathroom, and pillow-top mattress. Superior cabins are located in the center of the ship and are slightly larger. The lounge offers comfortable seating, a large screen TV, and an entertainment system. Personalized attention is the hallmark on the Solmar V. The Solmar V itineraries afford encounters with some of the world's largest marine creatures, including cage diving with great white sharks at Guadalupe Island and humpback whales at the Socorro Islands. Diving from the ship is easy from the as the large dive deck which includes a multi-level camera table, rinse tanks, and freshwater showers. The dive stations are positioned around the outside of the deck and the crew handles all dive gear. Some dives are done from a panga. The charter supports ocean conservation through its relationship with the Pelagic Life organization, which provides conservation and education programs.
SOLMAR V has a state-of-the-art titanium Nitrox membrane system installed and serviced by Nitrox Technologies. The ship offers nitrox at a charge but does not support technical diving or rebreathers.
