The ship's gun mounts and deck offer intriguing nooks and crannies to explore, each revealing its own underwater inhabitants.

The C-58 Minesweeper

One of the most famous wrecks near Isla Mujeres is the C-58 Minesweeper. Originally a US Navy vessel, this ship was decommissioned and intentionally sunk in the 1980s to create an artificial reef. Resting at a depth of about 85 feet, the C-58 is a playground for advanced divers. As you descend, the outline of the ship emerges, covered in a kaleidoscope of corals and sponges.
