    DescriptionThis 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.
