Scuba diving information in Lidador, Terceira Island, Archipelago of the Azores, Portugal

The Lidador makes part of the heritage of the Underwater Archaeological Park of Angra do Heroísmo Bay, on the southern coast of the Terceira island. This steamer, of 78.67 meters in length, was built in London in 1873 and made the route between Portugal and Brazil carrying cargo and passengers. It crashed on 1978 on a shoal in front of the Fortaleza de São Sebastião, causing a hole in the hull. Drifted westward, and got stranded alongside Figueira's pier, about 8 meters deep and at 50 meters of the coast. The site is tagged with two yellow buoys, one in the stern and another at the prow, where the divers must make the ascent and descent. There are interpretive plaques at the bottom. The divers can follow the guiding cable that is at the bottom. It's not very deep and almost without current. The access is made by the coast, by the Angra do Heroísmo nautical center harbour. The descent is made to 3 meters depth, right next to the port, then the descent is slow towards the stern of the wreck. The stern is more at north than the prow, and only 7 meters deep. We can see wreckage as the boiler and the propeller shaft.
