HMS Victoria - A Technical Diving Journey to Lebanon

Within minutes in the water the dark shape of Victoria’s massive ruder and twin props will emerge from the blue. Portholes with glass still in place and the battery of 6 inch quick fire casement guns. Victoria’s massive aft 9.2 ton turret is still in place with its barrel pointing to the flagstaff that displayed the white ensign of the Royal Navy over 100 years ago.

H.M.S Victoria, named after Queen Victoria, The biggest battleship of the British Royal Navy, sank in 10 minutes, in a vertical position, killing 358 sailors of its crew.

Today H.M.S Victoria stands vertically, starting depth at 75 meters and reaching 145.

For those Trimix Divers, this is by all means, the most impressive wreck dive in the world.
