SS President Coolidge, Espiritu Santo, Vanuatu
October 30th to November 5th 2012
Diving the SS President Coolidge!
The SS President Coolidge sank on 26th October 1942, and now lies on it's side with the Bow at 18 mtrs deep and the stern in 70 mtrs of water.
The SS president Coolidge is HUGE! Very hard to realize until you dive it! Swimming along the top of it (which is in fact the starboard side) you can see how big it is.
What a great price for a trip with so much Wreck adventure!
So many different dives on just one wreck
Starting at the Cargo Holds with all the trucks and jeeps, or the Promenade deck with guns and gas masks littering the decks, you will see how big this boat is, and it gives you a taste for more in the days to come. The history of the wreck becomes facinating as you want to know more about it.
As the week goes on, your diving goes further into the Coolidge, visit the iconic "Lady" wall hanging, the Mosaic Fireplace and penetrating though the Engine Room Cut in the side of the boat to the Engine Room.
Even count the colours of the tiles in the Swimming Pool (if you can at 55 mtrs deep!) or Cargo Hold 5 and 6, towards the rear of the wreck, and maybe even the Stern with its COOLIDGE name across the back.
Staying at Deco Stop Lodge
With a lovely view over the Segong channel, the Deco Stop accommodation is either in dorm style rooms of 4 beds and ensuite, to twin share ensuited rooms (at a extra cost of $98 per person for the trip) The trip includes 6 nights and a continental breakfast daily.
