Maldives Victory (Wreck)

The Maldives Victory is a cargo ship that sank in 1981 near Male City and the airport island in the Maldives. This 80m long wreck was en route from Singapore to the resort islands when it met its watery fate.

Divers who are passionate about macro photography and wrecks will find this site particularly enticing. The strong current that flows through the channel attracts an abundance of fish, creating a captivating underwater spectacle.

For optimal diving conditions, plan your visit to the Maldives Victory between December and May when visibility reaches its peak. Be prepared for potentially strong currents, requiring a speedy descent to avoid being carried away. The wreck's highest point sits at a depth of approximately 15m, gradually descending to around 25m. Adorned with vibrant coral, glass fish, and occasional sightings of batfish swimming nearby, this wreck also harbors hidden grouper in its crevices. Keep an eye out for smaller tropical fish species including lionfish, puffer fish, soldierfish, hawkfish, as well as graceful turtles gracing the wreck. Nudibranch and pipefish enthusiasts will delight in the chance to spot these fascinating creatures with their keen eyes.

Divers of advanced and expert levels are recommended to explore this underwater treasure in the Maldives. Located close to Malé, 20017, Maldives, this dive site offers a memorable experience for those seeking breathtaking marine adventures.
