Astonishing Wonders Found Underwater

Shipwreck near Vanuatu Island


SS President Coolidge, built in 1931, was the most magnificent American liner of her day until the WW2 events, when she transferred into a landing ship helping to secure Pacific area from Japanese troops. After the Pearl Harbor battle the vessel took part in evacuation of injured seamen, but the very next year it happened to bump up against underwater mines off the Vanuatu Island and sunk.

Divers can observe its chandeliers and mosaic tiles that now live side by side with corals and underwater creatures such as barracuda, sea turtles and lionfish.
