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.

Did 8 dives on the Coolidge through Absolute Adventures. Michael and Vutti were our dive masters and were awesome. The visibility was fantastic and I can't wait to go back again!

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