About Sol Mates

Comfortable diving in Lake Superior - Dive at your own pace and comfort level.

Sol Mates is one of the largest dive boat on the North Shore of Lake Superior.

Two gas engines and the diesel generator are exceptionally quiet and allow for relaxation and conversation while cruising the lake.

A spacious interior salon and outdoor upper deck areas allow everyone plenty of room to spread out and relax, watch videos on the HD TV, teach SCUBA related classes and have discussions with your fellow divers.

Sol Mates’ two sleeping cabins are separate from the salon area. One cabin has two full beds and the other has two bunk beds. This not only makes Sol Mates comfortable and desirable for the male and female diver, but also for couples. One head is between the cabins providing easy access to the toilet, sink, shower, and the bathtub. 

Up to three fresh meals a day are provided depending on the specific charter package. Snacks between dives are always available, as are non-alcoholic beverages. We are a BOYB charter but any leftover alcohol from previous trips is free for all.

Diving Off Sol Mates

Sol Mates’ 120 sq ft covered dive deck allows divers to get in and out of the water while staying out of the weather.

An onboard compressor provides air fills and warm water rinse hose helps mitigate the chilly Lake Superior water and a dryer is available for drying clothes and towels as well. We just installed a new hot water shower in the back deck for divers as well.

Ample gear storage space is available, as are standard 120v outlets for charging dive lights or camera gear. 

Our crews are experienced, helpful, friendly SCUBA professionals experienced in cold water diving and Great Lakes charter operations. 

The crew will strive to work with each group to dive into the sites that they most desire based on the specific charter and weather.

 

Dive Guides are available upon request.
