This new, updated edition of the "Diving and Snorkeling Guide to the Bahamas: Nassau and New Providence island" leads divers to some of the most beautiful dive sites in the Caribbean. Packed with full-color photos, this handy reference has been expanded to include even more dives, such as interesting wrecks sunk in the last few years expressly for divers, and innovative new "adventure diving" programs, not available anywhere else in the Caribbean. Also included are the reefs and wrecks used as backdrops for numerous James Bond movies, other feature films, and television commercials. The authors, Steve Blount and Lisa Walker, are also the authors of "Treasure Hunting with a Metal Detector (In, Around, and Under Water)". Additionally, Steve Blount is the former editor of both Sport Diver and Adventure Travel magazines, and author of "The Joy of Snorkeling". The book is illustrated with maps and beautiful underwater and topside photographs. Each dive site listed is described in detail, with specific information on the type of dive, approximate depth, presence and strength of currents, accessibility, required diving expertise, the type of bottom terrain, the typical marine life you can expect to encounter, and special points of interest.
