Celebrate the 78th Anniversary of SS President Coolidge


Special Group Departure

20 – 28 October 2020
9 days / 8 nights ex Brisbane
Diver from $ 2,395

Join this special group departure on a trip to the island of Espiritu Santo in Vanuatu to celebrate the 78th Anniversary of the sinking of SS President Coolidge. Sunk by a friendly mine in 1942, the 198 metre long, 22,000 tonne ship lies in clear, calm water and enables divers to discover the remnants of a World War II troop ship which was formally a luxury liner. Complete with munitions, military supplies and personal belongings, she is one of the largest and most accessible ship wrecks in the world. During the Pacific Campaign of WWII over 100,000 allied troops and support staff were stationed on Santo and the time they spent there is still evident today. Remains of crashed B17 bombers, deserted Dakotas and old WWII hangars and storage shelters are scattered in the thick tropical jungle, serving as silent reminders of the American occupation of the island.
