The C-One is a 120 foot steel tug that was sunk in the Sunny Isles Reef Site in November of 1990. She sits in 68 feet of water and is considered an intermediate dive. She is approximately 1.9 nautical miles east northeast of Bakers Haulover Inlet.

This area has an abundance of fish and almost immediately after the sinking, despite the low visibility and adverse conditions, fish began to congregate around the wreck, especially barracuda, most commonly seen in the winter in the waters off Miami.

Like the Belzona wrecks, you can easily navigate to another nearby artificial reef as she is only 200 feet to the south of the Conception which was purposely sunk close by about 7 months later.

Loran coordinates are Lattitude 25 54' 31.4" Longitude 80 5' 24.4"
