The SS President Coolidge is the perfect place to utilise your technical diving skills; but please note: as Pacific Dive is located on a remote island, the logistics of gas delivery can sometimes be a slow process. When requesting any technical diving courses or tours we will contact Pacific Dive to ensure they can fully cater to your requests.
