Diving the World: A Guide to the World’s Most Popular Dive Sites

from the February, 2010 issue of Undercurrent   Subscribe Now

Authors Beth and Shaun Tierney describe 220 dive sites in 19 nations, with site maps. But for my money, the real value comes from the country reviews, seasonal dive information, destination ratings and general travel information. The Tierneys mention preferred dive operators and liveaboards, provide a bit of chit-chat along the way, and illustrate this U.K.-published book with hundreds of color photos.

Their text is no critical review but it seems reasonably honest, though you can be sure the authors got comped much of the way and the 360-page softbound book does carry a few advertisements. If you’re interested in the Caribbean, you won’t find much: the Yucatan, Honduras, Belize and Grenada. But the key countries in the Pacific and Indian Ocean are all covered. If you’re an adventurous traveler, there’s a lot of good reading here and the book belongs in your library.

If you go to Undercurrent, click on “Books” and buy it through us, you get it from Amazon.com and our profits go to conserve coral reefs.
