Shark Diving at Socorro Islands
The Socorro Islands, correctly called Revillagigedos Archipielago, are located 250 miles due south into the Pacific Ocean from the tip
of the Baja Peninsula, Mexico. These islands have been compared to Galapagos or Cocos in the quality of Big Animal encounters they provide.
They have in fact been called "Mexican Galapagos". There are a lot of sharks - huge hammerhead schools, white tips, silver tips, silkys,
duskies, galapagos & occasionally tigers. We have counted up to 7 species of shark on JUST ONE DIVE!
Standard Cabin per person $2995
Superior Cabin per person $3095

The SOLMAR V holds 22 divers when full. Our trips will take a maximum of 16 passengers.
Solmar V is a luxury live aboard for the discerning great white shark cage diver! More creature comforts to suit your needs.
The galley and lounge have been carefully designed to guarantee a most enjoyable setting. The main salon comfortably seats
all of our guests, is fully air-conditioned and designed with a rich mahogany interior. Televisions with DVDs are available
for your entertainment both in the salon and in each stateroom. Each day brings three gourmet meals, prepared by our chef
and served to you by our staff. Snacks and afternoon receptions, along with beer, wine and soda, are all included in the price of your trip.
Side scanning sonar, multiple radar systems, and the most modern electronic marine technology package provide an excellent
complement to an experienced crew. Twin Two main engines and three full-time generators power Solmar V to a cruising
speed of 11 knots. Two fresh water makers produce 1,600 gallons per day, more than adequate to fully support the Solmar
V's showers and guest services. Our 12 individual staterooms are air-conditioned, have private bathrooms with
sink, shower and head. They also have color TV and DVD.
These islands are famous for unbelievable encounters with Giant Mantas. These winged giants are up to 22 feet across and
it is common to be in the water with 5 to 12 of these winged giants at once. This may seem like an exaggeration but it definitely
is not! They seem to enjoy interaction with scuba divers thinking we are giant cleaner fish and once they arrive stay with
our divers all day long. It has been said by many well-known underwater photographers that "there is no better place in the
world to photograph giant mantas. The water is blue, there are plenty of mantas and they even seem to pose for your camera".
