Certified Dive - The President Coolidge

Divers and history buffs should not miss a certified dive to the largest, most-intact shipwreck in the world and, also an intriguing piece of WW2 history. From 1931 - 1941 the SS President Coolidge sailed as a luxury passenger liner along the Sunshine Route. In 1941, the vessel was used as a troop carrier for the American Army. On the morning of 26 October 1942, President Coolidge struck two mines on her approach to Espiritu Santo and was abandoned as she sank. Today President Coolidge is known as a ‘wreck divers dream’ and attracts divers from all over the world. It is home to a wide variety of soft and hard corals, trigger fish, lion fish, nudibranchs and a resident moray eel. Most of the vessel's cargo is still contained in the holds of the ship, making this a truly fascinating dive into history.
