Professionals Who Simply Love to Dive

Diving the SS President Coolidge promises to be some of the most adventurous diving you may ever do. To ensure your safety and fun, Aquamarine’s guides are the most highly trained dive guides on the Coolidge (see sidebar for photos and credentials). We have been guiding on the Coolidge for over 17 years and our guides have logged over 30,000 combined dives on the Coolidge alone. We are fully qualified to cater to novice, advanced and technical divers.

We are a PADI Resort, SSI Instructor Training Facility, SDI Instructor Training Facility and TDI Instructor Training Facility. We offer a full range of dive courses from Introductory Dives and Open Water to Tec Training. We also offer Nitrox and Trimix as well as personalized tec tours on the Coolidge for qualified divers. Our spacious training facility is also ideal for dive shops wanting to use Aquamarine as an overseas training location.

The Dive Shop
The Dive Shop

Aquamarine s the only waterfront dive shop in Santo with our own private harbour perfect for boat dive departures and diver training. Our dive shop is decorated with a photo history of the SS President Coolidge in her cruise liner days as well as photo essay of her sinking. You can read reports of her final voyage and see bits of Coolidge memorabilia.

You’ll also enjoy a visit to our retail shop where you can purchase gear as well as log books, t-shirts, hats, Coolidge mementos, and locally made handicrafts. Also through our dive shop, you can arrange to do one of the numerous local tours around the island of Santo, a perfect activity for your non-diving days.
