The remains of the Madeira lie broken and scattered in several large sections and numerous small pieces around Gold Rock cliff, immediately north of Split Rock Lighthouse on Lake Superior. Water visibility varies from 20 to 60 feet in both shallow and deeper areas of the site. Water depths range from 15 to over 100 feet. Madeira's wreckage covers a varied topography. A boulder-strewn slope begins at the base of Gold Rock cliff in approximately 10 feet of water, ending at varying depths where the bottom is composed of gently sloping sand.
