The Maldive Victory is under about 35 metres of water, with a strong current, so even with the dive line to descend to it it's still a challenging dive, best suited for experienced or intermediate divers.  Once you get down to the ship divers are sheltered by the wreck.  There's not much left of this Singapore built boat, sunk in 1981, but the shell, but you can swim round inside the cockpit and though the body of the boat.  You need a flashlight, or even better a guide who knows where the interesting features are.  Batfish, barracuda and fusiliers will keep you company as well.
