The Maldives Victory Wreck is a 110 metre long cargo ship that sank in 1981, which was long enough ago to allow a profusion of hard and soft coral growth to have become established on it. It is shotted on the main deck by the mast, which I dropped down to before heading into the holds. Inside there were lots of bottles and cigarettes and a selection of small mosaic tiles. I explored the stern and bridge area where I saw schools of fusiliers and some jacks. Before our ascent I stopped for some photos on the bridge. A cool dive - but has to be dived on slack.
