The Antarctic Dive Guideis 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 Guidecovers 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.
