Excellent company, great knowledge of the Coolidge. Lionel was my instructor for my dive course and I couldn't have asked for more. Enjoyable and course gave me confidence to scuba.

Diving the SS President Coolidge was the main goal of our trip to Vanuatu, and we had a great time doing so with Alan Power Dive Tours. Overall, I would say that this is diving for divers, not for people who want to go down...More

Very friendly guides. Free pick-up from our resort (Deco Stop Lodge). Before all dives we got a detailed briefing. They guided us to different decks, cargo tanks and the “Lady“. Through very narrow tunnels we found a lot of stuff in the wreck. Perfect dives!
