We were quite an experienced group of divers traveling together, but we got to the Coolidge and our minds were blown! None of us had done anything like it before. We came up from every dive laughing and in disbelief of what we'd just seen and done. Try to do it as a shore dive- it makes everything very simple,... More

Dive operation on the Coolidge is well done. The wreck is a great dive experience. You need to do multiple dives.

I heard about this shipwreck years ago and have been wanting to do it ever since. I went with Allan Power - good equipment and great Guides. Thanks to Moli and Claud.

Used Aore dive and have done this twice now. Great wreck to dive. Gear was new and boat well maintained with all the right emergency gear. Paul knows his stuff.

For a first-time diver, this dive spot provided excellent diving for all open-water training and more than enough sights for further investigation. In total I had approximately four dives with Allan Power Dive Tours. The night dives are not to be missed!

It's a massive ship. The dive starts quite deep. Make sure that you book several dives since you might not be allowed too deep inside on your first few dives.

Loved the stern and the lady. Coral Quays Dive resort have some excellent leaders which can show you around the wreck.

What a great wreck dive. It far exceeded my expectations. My only gripe is that our holiday wasn't long enough to do more dives down there. The tanks, the jeeps, the personal belongings still onboard are really a step back in time. Very interesting.
