The Caribbean Dive Guide (Abbeville Diving Guide)


More Description

Abbeville's comprehensive scuba diving guides offer the most important, up-to-date diving and travel advice necessary to make every scuba diving experience an unforgettable one. The finest dive sites in each region -- 42 top locations in the Red Sea and 28 in the Caribbean -- are examined in detail. Every entry includes a three-dimensional diagram outlining the dive and provides important information on location, depth, timing, currents, marine life, wrecks, and other special features that make each spot unique.

The guides also feature fascinating discussions of the history of underwater exploration in these waters; their fragile ecosystems; special scuba and photographic equipment required; the potential risks presented by various poisonous fish and corals; and topside attractions for those who wish to take a break from the undersea world and travel on dry land. The book concludes with an outstanding visual dictionary of the fish most common to the Red Sea and the Caribbean. Over 110 scientifically accurate, full-color drawings and comprehensive biological descriptions create an easy reference for those who want to learn more about the marine life or wish to identify fish they've seen on previous dives.

Abbeville's Dive Guides are essential resources for anyone planning a scuba diving trip. Overflowing with colorful photography and illustrations, these book will bring pleasure to all scuba divers who turn to them for advice and inspiration.
