HMS Maori

HMS Maori

In 1942, the British HMS Maori, a tribal-class destroyer that served in the Mediterranean Fleet, sunk off the coast of Malta after being hit by a German bomb. Now, it is a popular dive site just a few hundred metres from the shores of Valletta. Much of the ship is still intact for divers to explore through its numerous swim-throughs.
