HMS Maori

Ease of Dive: ease of dive

This is one of the med's most famous dives. HMS Maori was a Tribal-class destroyer and was part of the fleet that sank the Bismark. She was sunk in 1942 in Grand Harbour. At the end of the war her bow section was towed to St Elmo's bay and she now lies in 12/14 mtrs of water. This is a very historical dive. Although it is hard to tell that it was once an important warship, you can still see many of it's features, including the 4.7inch gun mountings. Marine life is prolific here, and you can see seabream, octopus, moray eel, and if you are lucky you can spot sea horses and sometimes Flying Gurnards in the sand.
