Allan Power


Allan Power has a vast knowledge of the President Coolidge; he is the man they call 'Mr President'. Nearly 40 years ago, Allan came to Santo on a salvage expedition and has remained to become the 'caretaker' of this magnificent underwater adventure.

With over 15,000 dives on the wreck his knowledge is arguably unrivaled. He has spent a total bottom time of more than one and a half years diving her and has taken over 20,000 divers to visit the Lady alone as well as  frequently guiding divers to other parts of the ship. His connection with the phenomenal Boris is unmatched and only Allan could charm this monster Cod- many have tried, without success - and to this day Allan quite misses Boris. 
After a morning's dive, share coffee/tea and buns (cakes) with Allan in his house. Here you can listen to his experiences, ask questions about the Coolidge, her history and diving around Santo and meet your fellow divers. His house is a mini-museum where he has collected artifacts, books and photographs of the Coolidge and Santo.
