Fuh Sheng is a boat accessible salt water dive site, located in St. Maarten, Netherlands. The maximum depth is 111-120ft/34-37m. The average visibility is 61-70ft/19-21m.

The Fuh Sheng is a wreck of a 120 foot Taiwanese fishing vessel laying on its port side in 100 feet of water.(What was it doing here anyway?) This is undoubtedly a great deep / wreck dive.... and right now it’s an excellent penetration dive for experienced divers. Fuh Sheng was delivered to the bottom in 1995, but she did not wanted to go without a fight ... a big air pocket got trap living the bow sticking above water ... the night came and the bow of the ship was still out presenting a great danger for other vessels sailing in the area so a boat had to stay over night patrolling the area order to win this long fight in the next day a commercial diver had to climb with a torch on the bow and cut a hole to allow air to escape... and there she went .. with the stern first .... leaving a huge hole on the sea floor around 90 ft below the surface, the bow touched the bottom second and now sits at 114 ft from the surface. The mooring line is attached to the bow witch make a very trilling descent . When descending, if you look down you can see the gorgeous dark caribbean blue water. Just a few foots below surface you start seeing the big ship wreck laying peacefully underneath. When you land on the sandy bottom keep an eye for hundreds of garden ells, after the ells encounter we can start swimming on the deck area, or what used to be the deck and pilot / crew house .On the swimming tour you may encounter big caribbean spiny lobsters, Lionfish, spotted morays, rays on the sand, small sharks swimming around and for sure a lot of fish. It is also fun to take a quick look inside the wreck or even a long one if we are doing the wreck specialty... oh no is time to go up, just not not yet, a photo with the huge propeller is a must have! On the way up often you have the company of jacks and barracudas and they are great company during the safety stop! :)
