2020 – Dive SS President Coolidge & Support Santo, Vanuatu

Luganville and the local islands of Santo, Vanuatu were smashed by Category 5 Cyclone Harold in April 2020 during the CoVid19 shutdown. Come along, enjoy some diver camaraderie, support the locals affected by this huge event and get away for New Years.


One island in Vanuatu, more than any other attracts divers like a magnet – Espiritu Santo. The majestic beauty of Santo is what inspired James A. Michener to write his classic “Tales of the South Pacific.” Approximately 50 minutes flying time from Port Vila to Santo, Air Vanuatu operates daily services between the 2 islands. Santo is from a time past. People still come from within the jungle to trade for a few basic necessities, then blend quietly back into the shadows, amongst the remains of crashed B17 bombers, deserted Dakotas and old WWII hangars and storage shelters that are scattered in the thick tropical jungle and serve as silent reminders of the American occupation of the island.

Greetings from the locals at Million Dollar Point

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. Other wrecks and remains from the war lie below the surface of the clear blue waters. One of the major diving draw-cards of Santo is the S.S. President Coolidge, a World War II troop transport wreck. The township of Luganville is the capital of Espiritu Santo and features a range of accommodation from hotels to beach front resorts, restaurants, coffee shops a sports club and dive shops. Join us on a fully organised and escorted trip where all you need to worry about is…..well….nothing!!
