SS President Coolidge, Luganville

(260+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
Dive beneath Vanuatu's blue sea to explore the old shipwreck of SS President Coolidge, a U.S. luxury liner that served as a troopship in World War II that was sunk by mines in 1942. Today, the shipwreck serves as a recreational diving site. Swim through holds and decks while meeting sea turtles, moray eels, and lion fish. Look for artifacts like guns, cannons, Jeeps, helmets, and a surreal statue called "The Lady," a porcelain figure of a lady riding a unicorn. Even novice divers can experience this attraction because of its close proximity to the surface.

  • Not a lot that I can add that hasn't already been written on the Coolidge. Very accessible from the shore (but a boat makes life a lot easier), not beyond the reach of even novice divers, and as awe-i...  more »
