SS President Coolidge, Luganville

Dive beneath Vanuatu's blue sea to explore the old shipwreck of SS President Coolidge, a U.S. luxury liner that served as a troopship in World War II that was sunk by mines in 1942. Today, the shipwreck serves as a recreational diving site. Swim through holds and decks while meeting sea turtles, moray eels, and lion fish. Look for artifacts like guns, cannons, Jeeps, helmets, and a surreal statue called "The Lady," a porcelain figure of a lady riding a unicorn. Even novice divers can experience this attraction because of its close proximity to the surface.
