SS President Coolidge (Wreck)

Considered by many divers to be the best wreck dive in the world, the SS President Coolidge was a luxury passenger liner converted to a troop carrier during WWII. While entering the Second Channel she struck a friendly mine. The captain ran her aground with the intention of salvaging, however the ship sank quickly.

The SS President Coolidge has become an amazing sanctuary for an abundance of fish life. Sometimes dugongs are in the shallows as well as turtles, moray eels and other fish species.
