Fantastic Interesting Dive site

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

This is a must for all divers, very easy to dive walk in from the beach. You need to go with a dive guide as it is such a big boat and to find the best stuff is not easy. Dive with the team at Coral Quays fish and dive resort, they are great.

We took 11 kids and 4 adults to the Coolidge for a club trip. Awesome. The wreck is very accessible, and I don't think its too scary for divers that wont want to be fenced in. Follow your instructor with a torch and you'll love it. The night dive was unbelievable. Totally incredible. Go sooner rather than later. There are... More

Amazing diving! Only problem is no trip will ever be long enough to see the wreck properly. Would recommend at least a week diving the ship if you can.

Such an interesting and accessible wreck - swim out no boat needed. Good guides and warm water and the wreck is spectacular....

This wreck is just massive..! It's a truly impressive experience, not to be missed! If you can, DO THE NIGHT DIVE! Also, take some time to choose your dive center, diving the Coolidge is very cool but involves some risks, and you don't want to be with dodgy people for that..! Read the reviews to make the best choice (I... More
