By Jim Crockett
56 pages, 7x10 inches, paperback, 73 Color photos
Why do people scuba dive? What can they expect to see underwater? What's the training and equipment like? Answering these questions for the 10- to 18-year-old age group is the focus of this book. As an introduction to snorkeling and scuba diving, it discusses the appeal of the underwater world, equipment, training, specialty diving and careers. This is the perfect gift for someone you'd like to introduce to diving. It's also a great tool for dive shops to use to show non-divers why we are so passionate about the sport of snorkeling and scuba diving.
