ABOUT MALDIVE VICTORY

Maldive Victory plan
With the kind permission of iDive Maldives

The Maldive Victory is a 100m long cargo ship that hit the reef of Hulhule Island on February, 12th 1981. The 1420-ton vessel, which contained mainly products for the capital and resorts, sank the next day.
Its wreck now lies parallel to the airport runway at a depth of 35m on a sandy bottom. It is partially covered with corals. Its highest central mast is 12 meters deep, and a rope with a buoy at the surface is attached to it. Due to the strong currents it encounters, the wreck is accessible only for experienced divers, who can explore the deck, the cabins and wheelhouse.

The water entry is done at a rope, which is attached to a buoy at the surface and leads divers to the central mast at 12m.

Divers generally continue towards the bow, where the holds protect them from the current. One of the ship's anchor is still visible. Then, it is possible to explore the cabin and wheelhouse before finding a passage at 16m to reach the mast before the ascent.

The ascent and safety stop are made long the rope.

This site is accessible throughout the year. Outgoing currents can be strong, and divers should master air management, the no-decompression limit and have a good experience of current. It is recommended to bring a torch.

As for all wrecks, the corals on metal parts are very fragile, be very careful of your movements while diving. Divers should always be able to reach one another for safety reasons, without being too close to each other in order not to limit the movements. They will need to find the right distance to ensure proper comfort and safety.
