By Bob Burgess,
128 pages, 7x10 inches, paperback, Color photos, Maps, Index, Appendices
ISBN 1-881652-03-3
Price: $18.95
With 19 books and decades of diving to his credit, the author takes you off the beaten track to some of the very best dive resorts and compact liveaboards in the Caribbean and Bahamas. Often remote and rustic, where amenities seldom exist, these operations are for the discriminating diver. In most cases their clientele is small in number, their operations low key, and their business based on word of mouth and not glitzy advertisements. Includes areas of the Bahamas, Belize, Bay Islands and Cayman Islands.
