The Solmar V is a true four-season live-aboard that takes advantage of weather patterns to provide optimal diving year-round. We spend November - June Diving with giant mantas, wild dolphin, seasonal whales, and seven species of shark at the Socorro Islands and August-October we are cage diving with great white sharks at Guadalupe Island.

Silky, Galapagos, and baby white tips on our checkout dive at San Benedicto!
arrived after a 24 hour crossing at San Benedicto just in time to do
our checkout dive! The checkout dive gives our divers an opportunity
to familiarize themselves with the environment, check their weight
and buoyancy, and fine tune their gear so the rest of the trip can be
spent focused on the variety of life that the Revillagigedos has to
offer! We did our dive at “El Fondeadero” where the water was a
warm 77F with 40' visibility in the late afternoon. On our checkout
dive we spotted some white tip sharks swimming around along with
three baby white tips hidding amongst the reef, tucked inside a
little cave. Close to the surface we spotted seven silky sharks
along with a smaller Galapagos shark that came close to welcome us to
the Archipelago de Revillagigedo! Tomorrow morning we start the
adventure at 8 o'clock with a goal of doing four dives!
