What to expect
You can do two dives on the Coolidge (shore or boat) which entails a minimum 4-hour surface interval. A double boat dive on reefs and other wrecks, or three dives in the day. The triple dive consists of a shore dive on the Coolidge followed by a double boat dive at two other sites – Wreck or Reef – in the afternoon or three boat dives on reefs and other wrecks.
There is plenty to choose from with the USS Tucker and of course Million Dollar Point both being ‘must do’ dives.
Reef dives include four dive sites exclusive to Absolute Adventures. One of their guests’ favourites is Ratarata Reef which pops up 200-300m offshore rising from 45m to 3m. Frequented by schools of rainbow runners, barracuda’s, GT’s, trevally, green sea & hawksbill turtles, countless parrotfish and reef sharks, it is another dive not to be missed.
Other commonly dive reefs include two at Tutuba Island including Chails Reef with a good chance of seeing resident turtles and passing barracudas; and Cindy’s Reef, off Aore Island, which provides easy reef diving with good visibility.
Absolute Adventures also offers free-diving and snorkelling charters, as well as game, sport and spearfishing charters with multiple boat setup for fishing.
What we think …
Absolute Adventures is the best choice for technical diving on the SS President Coolidge.
