STARFISH RATINGS. Each dive site is rated for overall interest, marine life, visibility and water clarity with from one to five "starfish".
ADVENTURES, varied for age, budget, interest and skill level, include island cruises, offbeat excursions such as Midway Island (from Hawaii), swims with captive and wild dolphins, manatee encounters, tours of ancient shipwrecks, the first snorkel-thru museum, snorkel-kayak trips and sail-snorkel tours.
RESORTS for every budget are detailed, including secluded hideaways that have reef snorkeling off the beach or within walking distance-some with dolphin lagoons. Also featured are campgrounds, and resorts with on-site water sport shops.
MORE than just a travel guide, Snorkeling Adventures, 2nd Ed offers first-aid tips for coral cuts and sea stings, a special chapter about sharks, underwater photo procedures, an introduction to fitting and using equipment and safety suggestions for newcomers.
Maps, color and black and white photos, drawings, detailed topside directions and special dive-tour operators are covered as are select spots for children, novices and experienced open-water divers.
