I purchase this book after spending a year on a sailboat in the Sea of Cortez. I wanted it to identify all the cool things I saw whiles snorkeling nearly every day. This book was exactly what I had hoped it would be. Well, done. The pictures are excellent!

This is a great reference for the sea life in the Sea of Cortez (Gulf of California). The photos are fairly accurate, but could be better. So far this is the best we've found over the years.

Not a bad book. When comparing this book to Reef Fish, the book is sub standard. Fish seem to be scattered around the book with no real sections. Its difficult for use when you're using a book to identify a fish that you don't know what it is. The photos for the most part are poor quality. Still, overall, the book does do the job!
