Trusty Star

HMD Trusty Star is one of the many World War II wreck dives around Malta. Formerly she was a British drifter which later converted to a minesweeper. She sunk after hitting a mine herself outside Grand Harbour in 1942.

 The wreck is at 90 m depth approximately 3 km off Fort St. Elmo in Valletta. Therefore this is a boat dive for technical trimix divers. The wreck is about 26 m in length and lying on a 45-degree angle on her starboard side on sandy seabed. The boat structure is quite intact and but covered with silt.

A group of divers discovered the HMD Trusty Star wreck in September 2016. As of 1st May 2019 she is under protection of Heritage Malta. You will need special permit for the dive.
