Editorial Reviews

Orlando Sentinel - Eric Michael
Practical information for each location, such as maps, travel, advice, seasonal water temperatures, visibility ranges and more.
San Francisco Chronicle - Christine Delsol
Large-format, slick pages and luminous photography make this not only an information-packed reference but a dream book for divers.
Nashville Tennessean
Comprehensive, colorful, one-stop reference on dive sites.

Library Journal
Lavishly illustrated but fairly light, this guide covers many of the most gorgeous scuba diving venues in the world. A marine biologist and expert diver, Halls provides a four-page summary of each location, briefly directing the diver to the most interesting dive sites at each. Color photos of the wildlife, scenery, and terrain add interest. Shaded boxes provide limited guidelines for the prospective visitor-visibility, must see, shortcomings, travel, visa requirements, water temperature, dive centers, hospitals, etc. Interesting or accessible wrecks in the area are described and illustrated as well. Many of the venues require considerable effort to reach, and not all have extensive facilities, but they all look wonderful here. A good vacation book, whether the reader is the sort to fly out to the Cayman Islands, Mauritius, or Lake Malawi or just likely to dream. Recommended where interest warrants.-Edwin B. Burgess, U.S. Army Combined Arms Research Lib., Fort Leavenworth, KS Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
