Series Overview:

Exploring a new environment is an exhilarating experience. But there’s just so much to see and it can be hard to remember all the key information about a reef or wreck when you finally head into the water. Having that information readily available while in the water can improve safety and vastly improve your experience. Our waterproof cards are printed on plastic or laminated synthetic paper so that you can take them with you while you dive or swim. Each card includes valuable information such as:

  • A 3D-image fully rendered of the individual reef or wreck that highlights many of the key features at a given site
  • A brief description about the history of the wreck or key information about the reef
  • The important depth information for that site
  • Information about key species found in the region
  • A suggested route that is popular with most divers and snorkelers
