Most travel guides stop at the water’s edge, omitting some of the most engaging environments a travel destination has to offer. The Reef Smart Guides Dive, Snorkel and Surf travel series is the definitive resource for those who like to explore the aquatic environment, particularly scuba divers, snorkelers and surfers.
Using our unique 3D-modelling technology, we have produced photo-realistic maps of the underwater environment, packed with vital information, such as access points, depths, currents, suggested routes, notable features and potential hazards. Each guide also contains a detailed section on marine creatures that includes information on approximately 100 species specific to the region.
Our guidebooks are an indispensable resource that helps divers and snorkelers explore the underwater world in a safe and environmentally responsible way and make the most of their time in the water. Fans of Lonely Planet will love this series. Pack these guidebooks with the rest of your gear and don’t leave home without them.
Our guidebooks are available online from Amazon and at many major book retailers across North America and Europe, including Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, IndieBound, Indigo and Chapters, Target, Walmart, Book & Books and Waterstones. They are also available at on-island dive operators and book retailers. If one of our guidebooks has helped improve your dive or snorkel trip, please leave an online review at Amazon.
