Dive Number: 394 25/10/2012 Airport Wreck, Male Atoll, Maldives
Water Temp: ??c
Bottom Time: 40minutes
Max Depth: 30m
Details: An islamic holiday was underway today, and the place just goes into shut down. I managed to find an operator to take me out, and we agreed on a site that’s suppose to be a great dive. It was a different story when the boat owner decided he wasn’t prepared to travel that far and copped on with an offer to dive the airport wreck. I wasn’t happy…i’ve never been angry on a dive before but to spend my second last day diving in the wonderous maldives only to be looking at a pile of metal next to a trashed area of reef next to a man-made island just made me breath fire in my bubbles. Cue spoilt, ugly tourist. This dive made me loath wrecks even more than i already do…dont get me wrong, a wreck with history and interest fascinates me, but this was just a poor excuse for a tourist attraction.
Camera Details: Tokina 10-17mm, 2 X YS-D1 Strobes
