Description

What is it like to dive down a 13-story building? What will sharks do when they see you in the water, encumbered by all that scuba gear? Are there really cowboys on dive boats? Is feeding stingrays a safe activity? Can you really get hitched thirty feet down in the Atlantic Ocean? Whether you're just simply curious about such things, or are considering taking up diving, or are already a diver, these may be questions that you'd like to have answered. Into the Drink! - True Diving Stories has first-person answers to those questions and many more. The stories are interesting whether you're a diver or just a vacation swimmer. The writer, with his wife, and then his daughter, took up diving during middle age as an adventure. This book has stories of going from fearing the water and its perils, to being nearly fearless in deep water and embracing its excitement. It has chapters focusing on individual diving subjects, personal color photos, and an appendix of technical terms and equipment explanations. All written in a breezy, easy-flowing narrative straight from the diver's mouth. Buy this book now and start reading about situations every diver may face - from scorpionfish to dead-end caverns. And how one diver, his wife and his daughter dealt with those experiences. And had fun and adventures at the same time.show more
