S/S President Coolidge is one of the largest shipwrecks you can dive, and the experience is simply... well, great! Measuring in at 653 ft this giant offers great views from 25 to 65 meters depth. The wreck can be easily penetrated and offers stunning views both inside and out. Get in touch with one of the dive centers in the... More

I had Dave from Aquamarine Santo as my guide. He knows the Coolidge back to front. He did a great job of checking that my rusty skills were up to the task. I can't wait to go back many times to discover the many different aspects of the Coolidge. I booked the dive from Australia before sailing on a cruise... More

An awesome wreck dive that can be made from the beach, and as it starts at 20m, is accessible by beginner divers. It's nice to see there's still plenty of artifacts such as live rounds (that shouldn't be handled), but it's one of the biggest dive-able wrecks, so don't expect to see the whole thing in one day.

The Coolidge is huge! I've dived wrecks in the Red Sea, but they don't compare to the sheer size of the Coolidge. I dived with Paul from Aore Adventure Sports and his gear was excellent and his base is only 10 minutes motoring from the dive site, which makes for an easy dive. I was the only customer on the...

I hadn't really planned to dive the Coolidge as I am only certified to 18 m, however Allan Power and my dive buddy made it happen with no adverse consequences except for my running short of air. David was a great buddy, very patient, a good communicator and was very proactive in sharing air when I started to run low.... More

The Coolidge is sooooooo interesting, I could spend weeks here exploring this wreck with Coral Quays looking for war relics galore from when she sank.

It took us a few days to condition ourselves to the 'main' dive where we entered the stern and swam the length of the ship. It was a great experience. I dived on air: max depth was 64 metres, the other 2 were diving on mixed gas. At the max depth, we were all pretty narced,. Given the time spent... More

You don't need to be a wreck diver to enjoy this location. There is something there for every diver and a dive location that you will always want to revisit. The wreck is very accessible and there are so many things to see. It is mind blowing going back in time so see everything so well preserved 73 years later.... More

There is no doubt this is one of the best most accessible wreck dives available. We dived with Coral Quays Fish and Dive who were very professional. The resort is also good base for anyone looking for a dive holiday. We would also suggest staying there while diving and maybe having a couple of days off. we stayed @ oyster... More
