Excellent dive centre - friendly staff and the owners are hands on. Alan drives you out to the dive site and has over 15000 dives on the Coolidge alone so I doubt there is anyone else that knows the wreck like he does. Good chat...More

Allan Power has dived the Coolidge more time than you've had hot dinners. He's now an 85 year old, cantankerous old bugger/ living legend. But if you're looking for the stories about the wreck, Allan is your man. I'm guessing he knows more about it...More

Very enjoyable diving with Allan Power Dive. The Wreck (President Coolidge) is very huge so that you can see many things inside and the dive master (Ian) taking care of us too.
