This shipwreck dive is in close proximity to the harbour, which makes for an easy dive for divers of all experience levels.
It was in 1968 that the ship Terceirense, about 40mts long sank. The stern of the ship is the most intact part of the wreck, with its impressive propeller often surrounded by schools of pelagic species, including Almaco jacks and Salemas. In the remaining area, over which the wreckage of the ship is spread, you can observe an exceptional number of species, including blacktail Combers, Azores chromis, Canary damsels, Mediterranean rainbow Wrasses, ornate Wrasses, curious large dusky Groupers, Forkbeards, Congers and Moray eels occupying large sections of the hull, pipes and boilers.
