1. The victory wreck

The Victory Wreck is an 80m/262ft cargo ship that sank in the Maldives’ North Malé Atoll in 1981. It sank while on its way from Singapore carrying goods for the resorts on the islands. Typically, divers begin and end their dive set at the mainmast. Divers can take a glance down on the way back to take in the entire view of the wreck.

The best time to dive into victory wreck is from December to May. The Victory used to get roughly 120 divers a day before it closed down. It was a well-known diving wreck not only in the Maldives, but all across the world. The Maldives Shipwreck is reached by a rope linked to a buoy that marks its position. When examining the remains of Victory, please remember that the currents are strong, so carry a flashlight.

2. Rannamaari Wreck

Rannamaari wreck is located in Angana Ilhuru. It is present in North male Atoll. It is an abandoned sand-dredging ship which was submerged to make wreck diving easier. The Rannamaari Wreck was used as a dredging ship in Male’ before being moved to Angsana Ihuru in 1999. They even had plans to use it as an artificial reef. The ship, however, unexpectedly sank two days before the actual incident. The dredger was docked in front of the bar, and no one noticed that the “Rannamaari” was steadily sinking until the very last moment when air bubbles and froth spilled out violently from the submerging dredger. At a depth of 26 meters, it sunk to its ultimate resting place and has since become a home for hundreds of aquatic critters and corals. One to get to see species such as Glassfish, squirrelfish, scorpionfish, stingrays, nurse sharks and lionfish.

3. Vaavu Ship Wreck

The shipwreck in the Maldives’ Vaavu Atoll is puzzling. It has a tragic, mysterious, and beautiful feel to it. The Vaavu Atoll Shipwreck said to be an Indonesian vessel, is one of the Maldives’ most Instagram-worthy locations. The ship lies half-submerged in the abundant Vaavu waters, with the bow partially visible. A sloping half-submerged tower in the water is the best way to describe it. The Vaavu Atoll Shipwreck, located just a few kilometers from Keyodhoo Island, has become a major tourist site in the Maldives.

The wreckage is quite a spectacle even among Maldivians who are accustomed to the lovely sight of turquoise lagoons and white sand beaches. Exploring the Maldives Vaavu Atoll Shipwreck, which is rich in corals and marine life, would be a wreck diver’s dream. Vaavu Atoll Fullday snorkeling adventure packages combined with abandoned island picnics and sunset dolphin excursions make diving in the wreckage even more remarkable and memorable. It is indeed a sight to witness, and it serves as a reminder of why a Maldives vacation is so wonderful.

4. Kudhimaa Wreck

The Kudhimaa Wreck is a medium-sized steel wreck near the Machafushi house reef. It is a 50-meter-/150-foot-long cargo ship and was intentionally sunk to provide a wreck for divers visiting the South Ari Atoll. At a depth of around 30 meters/100 feet, the wreck lays on the sandy bottom and has already sprouted coral and algae. On both sides of the wreck, cargo holds are easily accessible. The battle for space that has sprung up on the wreck’s surface is an interesting aspect of this wreck. A group of batfish, pufferfish, boxfish, and the traditional huge lionfish are found on and around the shipwreck. Needless to say, the wreck is brimming with macro photography and filming opportunities for aspiring photographers and filmmakers. Kudhimaa is best explored between June and December. Water temperatures will range from 27 to 30 degrees Celsius, with great visibility.

5. The shipyard

The Shipyard is one of the most popular dive sites in the Lhaviyani Atoll. Two 40-year-old collisions are found in this region. While one is upright, the other is lying on its side some 30 meters beneath the surface. Large pelagics, nurse sharks, and grey reef sharks frequent these areas, which are home to a diversity of fish. This is yet another must-see destination to add to your itinerary. The bow of Skipjack II, emerging ever so elegantly from the gorgeous seas of Lhaviyani Atoll, welcomes you to a world of underwater beauty in a rather dramatic manner.

Both the Maldives Shipwrecks are now covered in soft and hard corals. Yellow sweepers, butterflyfish, and Napoleon Wrasses are among the marine fauna to be found. Nurse sharks and grey reef sharks hang around at the Shipyard on the Lhaviyani Atoll. The Shipyard Lhaviyani Atoll is an excellent spot for both experts and beginners, even though currents can be severe at times.

Muli Channel in the Meemu Atoll is seldom known and discussed. Be that as it may, it is certainly one of the most outstanding dolphin spots in the Maldives. There are just two retreats in Meemu Atoll, Medhufushi Island Resort, and Hakuraa Hura. Fewer hotels in this atoll might be the explanation it isn’t commonly known in the movement local area.

On an occasion of a 4 day trip in an outlandish ocean side. Many hotels in the Maldives offer dolphin watching outings and it is perhaps the most famous trip among the traveler.

You don’t need to take care of or feed to watch dolphins, the boat needs to dial back and they would follow the boat. Giving acclaim is an extraordinary method for getting them perform great.

In the event that you are considering swimming or plunging with dolphins I did jumping here in Muli Channel and didn’t see any dolphin, just heard them making clamors a ways off. I didn’t take a stab at swimming as it was not presented by any retreat, certain individuals recommended it could even be dangerous assuming that there is a child dolphin as moms endeavor to ensure children. Jumping was astounding. Outright lucidity in water makes you in a real sense fail to remember you are in water.

Places to Swim with Dolphins in Maldives

  • Half Day Snorkeling – Shadow Palm Resorts (Turtle Reef, Palm Reef, Nemo Point, Giant Sand Bank and the Dolphin Cruise)
  • Nurse shark and Dolphin swimming with Coral nursery experience – Maafushi
  • Maldives Boat Charter (Private Boat Rental) – South Male Atoll
  • Swimming with dolphins – Vaavu Atoll



Most dolphins are dynamic during the 24 hours, both constantly despite the fact that they are basically dynamic during the morning and evening. All that they do during the day relies upon the states of their environment, the period of the year, the time, and the physiological states of their bodies.

Sleeping behavior

Since they need some level of awareness to arrive at the surface and inhale, they keep one cerebral side of the equator dynamic while different rests. Dolphins in captivity have completely unique resting conduct than wild dolphins as they keep their blowhole off the water and don’t react to light improvements, obviously having a more profound rest, maybe on the grounds that they are not worried about hunters in their tanks that could undermine them.

Feeding behavior

The taking care of exercises can be completed separately or in gatherings, helping out one another to catch bigger prey and having less energy consumption. One surprising conduct is the point at which they do a kind of “a hack,” tossing their food out.

The amiability of dolphins is obvious because of their constant relationship with different dolphins of similar species and sporadically cooperations even with different types of cetaceans and creatures overall.

The Baa Atoll is home to this lovely island. A 35-minute seaplane voyage or a 20-minute scheduled flight to Dharavandhoo based on the short speedboat trip to Reethi Beach are the only ways to get there. The island is surrounded by beautiful white beaches, and the word itself means “good beach” in the native tongue. On the island, there are 120 rooms, 30 of which are on the ocean.
