I loved diving the S.S. Coolidge on my first trip to Santo, Vanuatu in 2007. It is steeped in history and one of the most remarkable wreck dives I have ever done. I was thrilled that I was able to dive there again as part of Tok Tok Vanuatu 2019.

My experience diving with Aore Adventure Sports was fantastic! I highly recommend them. All four of my dives were fantastic and we stayed in their two bedroom villa. Paul and Lyndel took amazing care of us.

Please enjoy my three videos from the Coolidge and one at Million Dollar Point. We also went diving at Tutuba Reef with Coral Quays. It was choppy on the way out and my buddy decided not to dive after the 40 minute boat ride. You can hear me singing to her in the video, “If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.” I am not quite sure how you can hear me sing and clap so well underwater!

 

More about Aore Adventure Sports & Lodge: “Come and dive on Santo’s premier dive boat and if you are looking for a great place to stay Espiritu Santo’s newest private beach house is waiting for you.Situated on your own 200m white sandy beach in a self contained contemporary villa on Aore Island , just a short 10min boat ride from Luganville. We are a PADI dive resort and run our new dive vessel from right out front, diving the world famous SS President Coolidge and all the other local reef sites and wrecks. We also dive sites that no other operator can due to our boat capabilities. The villa sleeps 6 adults in comfort and has a fully self contained kitchen and barbecue area. One of the top local restaurants and bar is less than 5 minutes walk away. For non-divers there is plenty to do with tours to caves, pristine spring fed blue holes, great beaches, jungle treks plus many other activities, or just lay around and enjoy your own private beach. Snorkel right out the front or enjoy a paddle over the reef with our complementary kayaks.”
