Part aspirational, part instructional, this book is for competent divers who wish to extend their horizons or push themselves to the limit. Diving with Sharks and Other Adventure Dives covers diving with Great White, Hammerhead and other sharks, diving with gentle giants such as mantas and whale sharks, cave and wreck diving, and diving in strong currents and under ice. Each chapter is a combination of specialized technical and environmentally aware diving advice, site information and stirring anecdote. The dives featured range from established, accessible schemes such as the dolphin dives in the Bahamas to exceptional expeditions such as an unrepeated cave-passage exploration. Celebrating the diversity of diving as much as encouraging the pursuit of new challenges, this beautifully illustrated guide is a must for every qualified diver's bookshelf.
