Empire Warrior

Dive the Algarve with SUBNAUTAThe wreck of the British cargo carrier the Empire Warrior, which was sunk by German bombers on 19th June 1941 in front of the barra do river Guadiana, as she was preparing to go up the river to supply coal to the São Domingos mines.

The wreck is lying on a sandy bottom at a depth of 18 to 20 meters, somewhat split, but a few years ago the site was the object of a salvage operation. The wreck is lying in a SE/NW direction, part in Portuguese waters and part in Spanish waters.

Although this is a site with relatively easy access and no major currents, there are lots of fishing nets, which can make diving potentially hazardous. Therefore, this site is recommended only for experienced divers with good buoyancy control.
