In addition, it is my first time to experience the snorkeling in this beautiful island seeing so many different color fishes and coral reefs. I knew how to do the snorkeling and really enjoyed it there. The impressive part is the theater and after party. They do really have amazing show every night and that is awesome.
The Maldives Victory was used as a cargo ship until 1981 and the ship had an accident clashing into a coral reef and it was completely destroyed. The wreck is now used as a diving site. Maldives Victory wreck lies at a depth of 35 meters on the western side of the Hulhule Airport Island.
I have never tried snorkeling before and wanted to try at least once. The hull of the vessel lies 30 meters deep inside the azure water. I learned from the trainer that if someone dives into the water and ascends, he or she can watch fishes circling above giving a majestic view.
The Maldives Victory Wreck is a 110-meter long cargo ship now found deep under the water. For sure, the wreck would have been covered by a lot of corals of soft or hard type. While I got ready for diving, I was advised to wear gloves. The bottom depth of the wreck is 37 meters while according to Maldives law it should be the maximum of 30 meters.
I dropped into the water and held around 30 meter as there is plenty of things to see. I then moved up to the stern and bridge area (20 m) swimming through the cabin, where I saw plenty of fusiliers and some jacks. Then I followed another line at 16 m to the top of the mast and up to our safety stop. The visibility was 10 - 15 meters and a warm 28 C with no current on the day we dived.
I enjoyed thoroughly going by these islands, and had good experience of water and water sport, great white sand, and heaps of water animals.
