Join Pro Dive in Vanuatu and experience one of the worlds best known and loved wrecks - The SS President Coolidge.
This 22,200 tonne luxury passenger liner was commandeered as a WW2 troop ship that was a carrier vessel only; never meant to see combat. She hit a mine in 1942 and the Captain steered her onto the reef. The troops left everything in place as they evacuated the ship, thinking they would be able to salvage it in the coming days, but the ship gracefully slid off the reef and landed on its port side stern.
The result is a diver’s playground where artefacts can still be found today. Divers from the novice to the very experienced technical divers are all catered for here. There are over 20 unique dives on this wreck, from the bow at 20m, right down to the stern at 60+ metres.
