Vanuatu, country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean, consisting of a chain of 13 main islands surrounded by many smaller islands located between Fiji and and Australia. A group of 12 divers ventured from New Zealand to spend a week scuba diving the wreck of the SS President Coolidge taking the plunge into the extraordinary Blue Holes of Santo. Here is my photo journal.
The Extraordinary Blue Holes of Vanuatu.
The wreck of the SS President Coolidge is one of the world’s most talked-about dive sites. The Coolidge is a former US Naval vessel sunk by mines in 1942. With the hull almost completely intact, divers often spend multiple days at this site traversing the plethora of corridors, decks, guns and discarded relics that litter this 200-metre long troop carrier. Don’t miss 'The Lady' (a beautiful statue of a woman riding a unicorn) which can be found in the main dining room, the highlight of the dive for many visitors.
