Scuba Diver's Travel CompanionBook - 2003
Newly certified divers, those getting back into the sport after a hiatus, and casual recreational divers all have one thing in common: they want to choose a dive vacation that matches their skill levels. This practical guide takes the guesswork out of selecting the best dive getaways in the Great Lakes, Florida, Central America, the Caribbean, and the Indian and Pacific Oceans. Rather than profile individual dive sites, this guide provides information on the types of diving that each location offers, from 30-foot entry-level dives in the Keys to 100-foot wall dives off Saba. If there are divers of different skill levels travelling together, this book can help readers select a vacation spot that everyone can enjoy. The author also includes expert tips on what to bring and how to pack it; helpful hints about proper weighting and buoyancy; an on-board, pre-dive equipment checklist; and a roster of stinging marine life that divers commonly encounter, as well as how to treat their stings or bites. Whether vacationers are currently planning a dive trip or just hope to travel in the future, this handy reference will provide a wealth of information.
