      How to get to Vanuatu
[edit]
You can get to Vanuatu via Australia, New Zealand, Fiji or New Caledonia. At the time of this writing, Air New Zealand, Qantas, Virgin Blue (Australia), Air Pacific (Fiji), Air Calin (New Caledonia) and Air Vanuatu fly regularly to Port Vila, the capitol of Vanuatu. There are a few direct flights per week into Espiritu Santo (usually just called 'Santo').

If you can't fly direct into Santo, you'll need to take a short 45 minute Air Vanuatu flight from Vila if you want to dive the Coolidge wreck. Other islands and dive locations can also be reached via Port Vila on Air Vanuatu, which is actually a decent airlines. They have a new 737 jet that is used for their international flights and their domestic propeller planes appeared to be in quite good shape as well.

      Best wreck dives in Vanuatu
[edit]
The President Cooldige, in Santo, is one of the best wreck dives in the world (and many would argue THE best wreck. Full stop.) What ever rank you give it, it's an awesome experience. Do not miss doing a night dive on the Coolidge. Its surreal.

      Best time to dive in Vanuatu
[edit]
Locals say that the absolute best time to dive the Coolidge wreck is between the last two weeks October and the first two weeks of November. If you want a broader window, the weather between July through the beginning of November is generaly dryer and less windy than other times of the year.

      What to take to Vanuatu
[edit]
Pack for warm tropical weather. Vanuatu is in the southern hemesphere, but only 17 degrees south of the equator, so it is warm all year round. Everything in Vanuatu is quite casual, so shorts and t-shirts will do. As for diving, a 3 mil wetsuit will do you just fine.
