Book Description

25 Oct 2009
This global guide to the world's top dive sites is an inspirational reference source for divers who wish to experience, personally or vicariously, the best diving the planet has to offer. Written by the experienced dive authors of New Holland's award-winning dive guides, the book is based on first-hand experience. Contributing Editor Jack Jackson has fully updated this second edition, adding some new wreck dives and making sure that all the travel and dive information is fully up to date. This includes new locations for hyperbaric chambers treating 'the bends' and the latest travel advice for divers in the wake of increased security at airports, which can make travelling with diving equipment problematical. Conservation issues are more relevant now than ever, and Jack has ensured that the latest concerns and advice are included. Structured by oceans and seas, each section starts with a general overview of diving-related features and conditions. A large scale map shows the basic ocean topography and locates the featured dive regions to follow, while regional maps feature specific dive sites to help divers select and locate the type of diving experience they are looking for. For those inspired to travel to any of the featured sites or regions, an appendix lists travel and dive information, climate, the best time to go, contacts, dive operators and emergency facilities. In addition to comprehensive mapping, the book features superb underwater photography showing famous wrecks, a wide range of marine habitats and a huge diversity of species ranging from whale sharks to coral.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Coffee Table Book 3 Jan 2010
Verified Purchase
I think the title says it all. This is a very good coffee table book which promotes discussion with friends and visitors. Would certainly not have paid full price for it.
The name of the book says it all it is an atlas and gives 'tasters' about different locations. If you are off to specific places to dive do not bother to buy, there are certainly much better reference books available.

5.0 out of 5 stars Christmas present gratefully recieved 27 Dec 2010
Great coffee table book full of both information and fantastic pictures of dive sites around the world. I purchased this book for my partner who is a keen diver and it was great for other members of the family and our friends to see and read information about some of the dive sites he has been to. It has also got lots of great ideas about where to visit next, I think he might use it as a list to tick off as he achieves each one!!!
Lovely pictures and will provide hours of entertaining reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fasinating 30 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase
This book is amazing! The colour pictures are fantastic and vibrant. The maps clearly show the recommended dive location and it has created a few places on my bucket list! The company that shipped the book were amazing it was scheduled to arrive a week after the order date, but it arrived the very next day! It is a very wide book which I wasn't quite expecting but although it doesn't fit on my bookshelf, I was more than happy with the content inside. I was looking for an interesting book on diving as a present for myself and this was the perfect thing.
