This is a must do for all divers. Look up my review on Allan Powers Dive Tours They are the only operators to dive this wreck with. We did a total of 8 dives on the wreck. Honestly, you could spend weeks here and still not see it all!

If you are a diver and visiting Vanuatu, you should dive the Coolidge. The ship sunk just off the coast a few km out of Luganville. There are a few dive centers offering shore dives to the wreck. It is recommended to plan a few days of diving the Coolidge as the level of diving goes up every dive. A... More

We did just the one dive but you could literally come back here so many times it is huge. There is so much to see. In our one 45 minute dive we saw about 1/6th of the ship. Definitely worth going!

We went with Aore Adventures. Paul White was great and his guide Alfred could not have been more attentive. This was one of my most incredible experiences in Vanuatu and is a must for anyone visiting this area. This was an absolutely fascinating wreck.

Just amazing. My GF and I did 3 dives over 2 days on the SS Coolidge. It's just perfect for diving and an experience I'll never forget.

Many thanks to ni-Vanuatu dive guides, Alfred Niko #1 and his son, Sethy from Aore Adventures under Paul White, for amazing underwater shipwreck dives , including inside penetration dives with awesome views. Saw "The Lady" twice. This dive boat operator is my best ever for scuba diving on dive boat "Full Boar" in Santo, Vanuatu.

What a special wreck to dive. Teeming with marine life and amazing artifacts. Make sure you do one of your dives at night to see the flashlight fish in the cargo holds!!! And make sure you use dive company Aquamarine - they are the best :)

There was much more to see than I thought there'd be, it's a much bigger ship than I realized. You'll need multiple dives to appreciate the many opportunities the ship offers. We dived with Coral Quays and they were great. They also have the lease to the land/ beach adjacent to the Coolidge so can offer shore dives. It's a... More
