Top Wreck Dives of the World by Jack Jackson
Book DescriptionThis book explores the fascinating world of shipwrecks and wreck diving. Their great historical interest aside, shipwrecks shelter diverse communities of marine creatures and fabulous coral growths. Wreck dives are also useful for building diving skills, affording valuable practice in negotiating challenging or confined settings. The selection of dives includes airplanes as well as ships.Coverage is organized regionally by ocean, with the dives grouped according to the territorial waters in which they lie. There are uncounted thousands of wrecks around the world. The sites selected for this book are the 'best of the best'. The book offers a full spectrum of dives, from shallow dives on artificial reefs (formed by sinking old or decommissioned ships) to spectacular descents, to major wrecks such as the Lusitania, the Andrea Doria and the ship 'graveyards' of Scapa Flow and Truk Lagoon.
