For Americans, Cuba is the next hot Caribbean dive destination. While some American divers have sampled its reefs, divers from other countries have traveled freely there for decades. Americans officially can't go as leisure travelers, but if you want to dive there, you can do it with virtually no risk of financial penalty and certainly no risk of jail time.

Diving In Indonesia
Indonesia covers a large area - an archipelago that consists of at least 17,500 islands. It's 3000 miles from Pulau Weh in the West to West Papua in the East, and nearly all of it has exceptionally good diving. A book that attempts to encompass such an area is very ambitious. Sarah Ann Wormald has concentrated on the areas that she knows, including Bali, North and South Sulawesi, Nusa Tengarra, Maluku and Raja Amat. The author writes with authority and the voice of someone who has actually experienced first-hand the places she writes about The maps are detailed, the photographs excellent. Whether you are interested in the macro-life of Lembeh, the mantas of Nusa Penida or the wobbegongs of Cape Kri, this is a useful volume in a format that can be carried with you.
Nudibranch and Sea Slug Identification: Indo-Pacific
Indonesia has so much to offer the nudibranch enthusiast. For example, on Nudi Wall at Lembeh Strait, nudibranchs litter the seabed as if a great big sack of Gummy Bears has been carelessly tipped out. Nudibranchs are colorful slugs that wear their feathery gills on their backs. There are so many varieties, but how do you know which you've seen? New World Publications has come to the rescue with this weighty tome of 400 pages packed with color pictures, along with basic information to help the reader get the best chance of the right identification.
