To my knowledge, the free WIFI area closest to the port is Placa Central. If you can locate the Avenida do Mar McD's, then you'll easily reach Placa Central, as all you'll have to do is walk up the nearest road. However, after searching the internet, I learnt that there's also free WIFI at the Marina. The Marina is located at the Avenida do Mar waterfront, so even closer to the port.
Enjoy your visit to the Island.
