This is the best book on snorkeling I've ever read - it covers all the questions you could have about picking and using your equipment, swimming techniques to navigate around the reef, snorkeling with kids, getting the most out of your snorkeling experience and how to have a lot of fun. One of the best and most unique parts of this book is getting Dr. Burgess's insights on how to observe the reef creatures for the most enjoyment and appreciation of underwater world. He also talks about fish behavior and a wide variety of the creatures you might expect to encounter while snorkeling. Most of all, the book is very entertaining and the emphasis is on having fun!
