|About these ratings|
First, the title is very misleading. The Maldives Victory sunk in 1981 after hitting a reef—not exactly a successful voyage. But now, it is a rewarding accomplishment to reach this vessel. The dive site attracts scuba aficionados for its particularly challenging currents and the rich sea life—picture fresh coral and colorful fish—that have made the wreck a sight to behold.
The Maldives Victory rests below the waves on the Hulhule House Reef, which stretches between Male' and Hulhule. Experts say this site is gorgeous year-round. And be sure to take one of those experts with you: Like we said, the currents here can be dangerous. Scuba diving excursions can range from very expensive to fairly reasonable depending on the necessary level of instruction, the amount of rental equipment, and transportation to and from the dive site. Be sure to check with your resort concierge for more details and to make arrangements for you.
