Dove with Dive Paradise. Went with adaptive diving group from the Twin Cities, MN. The wreck was amazing with plenty of openings to safely explore. Would go back in a heartbeat.

We don't get many chances to go to this dive site, but on our last trip we had a small group and it was amazing. Our dive master, Jose, took us deeper into he wreck that we had ever been before.

I never get tired of diving this wreck, also known as the C53. MY Scuba Shop in Texas takes groups out twice a year to Cozumel. We dive with Paradise Divers out of Hotel Cozumel and Resort. We always request this dive and always LOVE...More

The C-53 is a nice entry level wreck in Cozumel. She’s perfect for any new diver ready to get inside a wreck. Though I do recommend a Wreck Cert. before this dive, the C-53 offers easy, large ingress & egress points. The lower section is...More

The wreck was expertly laid out for divers of almost any skill level to enjoy a quick tour of a former U.S. Navy WWII minesweeper. The wreck is at a depth of about 70 ft. While inside the wreck we saw a very large spiny...More

This wreck is an easy dive with a depth between 60 to 80 feet. It is easy to penetrate with many openings. Have your picture taken with your face in one of the portholes of the wheel house.

We added this wreck onto our stay at Scuba Club Cozumel in the afternoon. It was a great wreck. Large cut aways all over the ship. Inside, we encountered a HUGE green moray eel and lots of huge lobster. There was little to no sand...More

While I'd expected a dive on just the exterior, which would have been spectacular enough, the wreck is set up well to offer safe passage inside several decks. We also enjoyed the opportunity to swim through large, swirling balls of bait fish. What a remarkable...More

This was an unplanned last minute dive and I was very pleased with this wreck. I wasn't aware it was so good - excellent penetration through out the whole ship. I enjoyed this as much as the Vandenberg / Key West and the Spiegel Grove...More
