  • 144 Pages

The Antarctic Dive Guide is the first and only dive guide to the seventh continent, until recently the exclusive realm of scientific and military divers.

This book is packed with information about the history of diving in Antarctica and its wildlife, and features stunning underwater photography.

The Antarctic Dive Guide covers 31 key dive sites on the Antarctic Peninsula and South Georgia and includes maps and detailed guidance on how best to explore each site. Essential information is also provided on how to choose and prepare for travel to this remote region, and diving techniques for subzero waters. This book is an indispensable resource for anyone considering diving in Antarctica, and an exciting read for anyone interested in this little-explored underwater world.

This fully revised and updated third edition:

  • Covers 4 new dive sites
  • Features revised and updated information for the other 27 sites covered
  • Includes new sections on the Sea Leopard Project and natural product chemistry from Antarctic marine organisms
