Our dive trip to Vanuatu

We visited Vanuatu for a week in 2017 with the aim of diving the SS President Coolidge wreck on Espiritu Santo. First we stayed for three days on Hideaway Island near Port Vila, which has some fantastic reef dives. The water depth around the island drops of quickly and we were able to freedive at a small wreck not far from the island.

The second part of our trip was spent on the island of Espiritu Santo. Here we freedived at the Million Dollar Point dive site, the SS President Coolidge wreck and the Nanda Blue hole. These dive sites are incredible. The SS President Coolidge wreck is huge and the best wreck dive in Vanuatu. Million Dollar point is a unique dive site, essentially being an underwater scrapyard, while the Blue Hole makes for a nice chilled afternoon dive.
