“Paradise or isolation”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

Fantastic location but unless you are on honeymoon and like scuba diving not much else to do, be prepared for total relaxation and relative isolation.

“Great first wreck dive”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

So far I´ve been to Maldive Victory twice, first as part of my Advanced Open Water course in August 2012 and then as a Rescue Diver in January 2013. The cargo (which most sources say is 110 meters long) sank in 1981 and you can still find old rulers, stereos, cassettes, photo albums, etc. I´d say that most of the time you´ll want to be at a depth of 20 to 35 meters. The wreck is incredibly close to the airport island of Hulhule and just a few minutes away from Male´. Sometimes the visibility isn´t that great and there are strong currents, but it´s still a great spot to go and see.

“Interesting Dive”
Reviewed 25 August 2012

Dived this a few times. Visibility can be variable and currents can be quite strong so hang on! But its an interesting dive on an old freighter. You can swim into the holds and the wheel house.

“Under water wreck”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

The Victory was part of our Advance Open Water Dive course, it was interesting but not as fish intense as some of the other dive site we visited. But it was a challenging dive for us beginners and those with more dives under their belts....
