Apart from the SS President Coolidge, there are many other interesting wreck dives around Santo. The following dives in particular are worth considering as part of your diving holiday with us, and we can easily incorporate them into a package for you.
Million Dollar Point Depth 14-55m see full history here
Million Dollar Point is a ‘must dive' Dive site on your visit to Espiritu Santo. Nothing like your average wreck dive, it needs to be seen to be believed!
After WWII when the American Army left the Island they had an excess of earth moving equipment that they sunk of the end of their jetty at Million Dollar Point. Divers exploring the 'dump yard' will have the pleasure of swimming around countless Jeeps, Dump trucks, Bulldozers, Forklifts ,Excavators, Rollers, Graters and even a crane, amongst various other equipment. Take a good look around as you explore, and discover all sorts of amazing things. The hundreds of fish and corals that now call here home are in and amongst everything, so there is plenty to see on this very unique dive
USS Tucker. (US Destroyer) Depth 14-21m
This WWII wreck is one of the less explored in Santo and sits on a fantastic reef. Another casualty from friendly fire the USS Tucker went down just off the island of Malo. Over the years she has broken into three main pieces - the bow, the mid-section engine blocks, and the stern. She is spread over a hundred meters of reef or so, and a must do when in Santo
Tui Tawaite. (Marine Tug) Depth 40-45m
The Tui Twaite is a tug boat hero in the historic Wahenni ferry incident in New Zealand. She found herself in Santo pumping fuel and oil out of the sunken President Coolidge, following a leak that could have been an ecological disaster for Luganville and the Segond Canal. She is 40m long and now rests up right in the middle of Segond Canal straight off our jetty. This is a fantastic dive for the experienced diver looking for something a bit different than the Coolidge.
