Porpoise is a boat accessible salt water dive site, located in St. Maarten, Netherlands. The maximum depth is 91-100ft/28-30m.

Location needs adjusting
’The Porpoise’ is one of the deeper wreck dives around St. Maarten. The shallowest part of the wreck lies around 55 feet (17m) with the deepest area a little over 90 feet (28m).
’The Porpoise’ was a tug boat that was used around St. Maarten and its neighboring islands for many years. The tug boat has been out of use, since Hurricane Luis in 1995, until they decided to clean up and sink the vessel. Now ’The Porpoise’ is home to a variety of fish, large stingrays and an attraction for adventurous divers.
On this dive you can see: Large stingrays, various schools of fish, eagle ray, barracuda, spiny lobster, angelfish, porcupine fish, flounders, trumpet fish etc.

The PORPOISE is an 100’ almost completely intact steel tug boat wreck that was sunk on purpose in October of 2003. This hard structure lays with a starboard list in about 90 feet and rises up to about 60 feet of water. Porpoise is a great wreck dive site that drawn marine life like a magnet... in the sand you can often see huge Southern Stingrays, Garden Eels, Peacock Flounder and more..... Below deck divers can see the machinery, Spine Lobsters, Spotted Morays and Squirrelfish... The pilot house is in good conditions great for underwater pictures... Look out for the Big Barracuda if she is not on the pilot house look around she must be chasing some school of fish around the wreck :) :) :)

This Site is also great for penetration for those divers that are qualified, or to complete the wreck diver specialty....
