The Solmar V was the first live-aboard to run regularly scheduled trips to the Socorro Islands, beginning in 1992. This 112 ft. / 34 m vessel has consistently been upgraded to maintain the highest possible level of live-aboard excellence.

With 12 cabins the Solmar V cruises with 22 passengers and solmarDiversinCagea crew of 10. The boat is air-conditioned throughout with private shower/head, tv/dvd, pillowtop mattresses and down pillows in every stateroom. We run redundant backup systems in all departments so you never miss a dive due to equipment issues. Diving is done from the very spacious dive deck and swim/dive platform or from one of our rugged 21’ Achiles inflatables when diving with drifts or currents. Our crew, many of whom have been with us since the early days, are without a doubt the most experienced crew operating in these waters and considered experts in local conditions and weather. We consistently deliver the best possible diving on all our cruises.
