The Cayman Islands

Front Cover
Abbeville Press, Incorporated, 1999 - Sports & Recreation - 167 pages
Full-color, three-dimensional maps of each dive site offer what no book has ever before provided: the information needed to plan your dive down to the last detail. You can review the exact layout of the site--including depths, sizes, and distances between reefs and wrecks or any hazards--and even the lighting conditions for optimum underwater photography. The short chapters covering the 26 dives in this book provide crucial data about depth, currents, weather variables, and plant and animal life, and each book ends with a full-color visual encyclopedia of the most common fish that inhabit the area.
The lively text by dive experts has been vetted by Diving Science and Technology Corporation (DSAT), which is a corporate affiliate of the Profesional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI), making these the most reliable guides for the expert as well as the first-time diver.
