Shipwreck of a small transport vessel. Its cargo was constituted by tiles remains.
It is located at a depth between 55 and 65mts, depending on the tide. Among the tiles that lie in the bottom its possible to find Congers as well as schools of Anthias.
The bottom around the shipwreck is flat but there are small gentle slopes as well as some rocky areas that rise 1 to 2 ts from the bottom, and in which its possible to find nudibranchs of considerable size as well as hard corals. From the wreckage zone in the south direction, there is a wall that extends east-west and sinks to about 80mts. The site of the shipwreck, despite being near the coast, is already outside of the bay of Sesimbra. As such, it is influenced by the proximity to the estuary of the Sado. The visibility in the place varies according to the tide, the depth and the conditions of the sea. We can also expect the existence of strong currents from the East-West direction.
