Liveaboards

Solmar V


Solmar V (Solmar V)

Solmar V is a comfortable liveaboard offering space for 22 guests in 12 cabins (10 twin-berth and 2 single-berth). Superior cabins are located amidships and standard cabins are located towards the front of the boat. Each air-conditioned cabin has a private bathroom with sink, shower and head along with built in colour television and VCR. The interior of the boat has been carefully designed in rich polished mahogany inset with brass fittings, and with forest green upholstery and carefully-chosen artwork reflecting underwater scenes. Seating in the main salon is provided by four large, well-upholstered U-shaped booths. The large quarter deck has a special camera table and bench-style tank racks with good-sized gear-storage bins below. There are four rinse tanks (two for cameras/computers and two for dive gear) and two freshwater showers. The stern features a broad, full-width dive deck with a super-wide, in-water ladder to facilitate easy exit from the water, although two 7-metre inflatable pangas are used to drop and retrieve divers at specific sites, if need be. Nitrox is available at an extra charge. The owners of Solmar V have created a boat that combines the service expected of a deluxe resort hotel with the special requirements of a luxury liveaboard diving vessel. Three gourmet meals are prepared and served daily, along with pre and post-dive snacks.

Between late October and early June Solmar V offers a series of 8 nights cruises to the Revillagigedo Islands, with five and a half days of diving. The cruises commence at Cabo San Lucas at the southern tip of Baja California. Guests are picked up from the Solmar Suites Hotel and join the boat in the afternoon on the day of the cruise departure and leave the boat after an early breakfast on the last day.

DIVENCOUNTERS ALLIANCE

Solmar V is a member of the Divencounters Alliance, a fleet of independently owned and operated liveaboard dive boats whose mission is ‘ to provide guests with exceptional diving encounters while providing luxury accommodations and amenities on board – at all times.’

Guests who sail on Alliance vessels, are, after their first cruise on an Alliance vessel, able to take advantage of a number of ‘Alliance Awards.’ These include a 5.49% discount on another Alliance cruise, free nitrox and a $50 on board credit.
