C-53 was built during World War II, more specifically in 1943, and she was decommissioned after the war ended. C-53 served as a minesweeper and she was sunk in June 2000, becoming an artificial reef and dive attraction.

C-53 is a rather accessible wreck, which can be dived easily, but this doesn't mean inexperienced divers should venture into exploring it.

The wreck lies at a depth of 21 meters, with its upper deck piercing the water at 12 meters. It is 56 meters long and 10 meters wide.

The ship has meanwhile become a home for barracudas, corals, sponges, moray eels, shrimps, groupers, glassy sweepers, starfish, blenny's and numerous other types of reef fish.

Meanwhile, the rest of the divers are able to continue their dive. Their boat carries fresh towels, wintergreen lifesavers, fresh fruit, cakes or muffins, cookies, rice krispy treats, etc., foul weather jackets, a professional first aid kit and DAN oxygen.
