Written by leading diving authorities, Abbeville's Dive Guides combine the best in underwater photography with the most complete, three dimensional diagrams and practical information on the world's most popular dive spots.
Three-dimensional maps in full color of each site illustrate 28 of the most spectacular dives in the Caribbean. These maps offer what no book has ever before provided: the information needed to plan your dive down to the last detail. You can review the exact layout of the site—including depths, sizes, and distances between reefs and wrecks or any hazards—and even the lighting conditions for optimum underwater photography. The short chapters covering each dive provide crucial data about depths, currents, weather variables, and plant and animal life, and each book ends with a full-color visual encyclopedia of the most common fish that inhabit the area.
The experts' lively text has been vetted by Diving Science and Technology Corp. (DSAT), a corporate affiliate of Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI), making these the most reliable guides for the expert as well as the first-time diver.
