Definitely the highlight of my trip to Espirito Santo! A great series of dives highlight the various areas of the ship, however four dives on the ship was not enough and I am already plotting a return visit to explore more areas of the wreck and even a night dive to witness the flashlight fish.

my daughter dived on the Coolidge after the cyclone so the visual was as clear as it could have been . This was her first dive here and she returned later for a second dive, she will definitely be back for more .

You will love the living beauty of this wreck! Alan Powers is the only guide you should go with! He has developed this site over 40year and his dive masters are exceptional. More diving next time.

SO MUCH TO SEE, you need more than 10 dives on her just to get a feel for the share size and the amount of equipment on her. would recommend Santo Islands Dive with Mal Davies. great team and quick boats to take you out to the site with a stop over between dives at Million Dollar point.
