Author information

Way back in the 80s we did a round-the-world trek spending long spells in the tropics, floating over vivid coral reefs and wishing we were down below with the divers. At the time our budget didn't extend to learning to dive but within months of returning to London we signed up for a BSAC course, did our first open water dives in the Maldives and all our qualification dives in Cyprus. A few years went by and we became increasingly involved in the diving world as a photo-journalist team with editorial work covering both land and dive travel, marine biology and conservation. A few years later, we took a 'career break' and aimed to dive our way around the world. We didn't manage to see as much as we wanted but it was a great year and led to being published in many international dive magazines, newspapers, travel guides and on the internet. Since then, we have become PADI Master Scuba Divers and our work has become increasingly focussed on dive travel books. We have been lucky enough to return to many of the places we first visited in the 80s and are slowly managing to reach all the other diving destinations we missed in the past. Together, we now run SeaFocus, an information and image-based resource for scuba divers with an ever growing gallery of underwater photos from well known scuba diving holiday destinations across the world along with marine species galleries and information files.

I was perusing this site for some dive books for Christmas and was pleased to see this. It has been on my shelf since if came out and i love it. Full of nice descriptions on each area and I use it each year to choose my main diving holiday. So far I have been to the Maldives, Egypt and Grenada after reading this. It is very inspirational with lots of great pictures.
