This book is awesome, pictures are great as well as all the information in it.

It is a nice set to have at home to review before or after diving - or even just to learn more about possibly what one MIGHT see on a future dive!

Format: Hardcover
If there is one set of reef identification books to own then this one is it. A set of three of the best books available, it contains Reef Fish Identification, Reef Creature Identification and Reef Coral Identification. Throughout the Florida, Caribbean and Bahamas areas there are no better books available. Each fish, creature, coral, grass or algae has it's own full color picture along with a line drawing that points out the defining characteristics of that particular species. With a plastic cover and the pages treated to resist water, it can be taken to the beach or onto the boat without much concern about the water damaging the book.
Each entry has complete information on the fish, creature or coral from size, depth, range and habitat to the level of concern that a diver should have for their safety around it. If you snorkel, dive or just have an interest in identification of the various things that you find on a reef then this set will give you everything you need to identify anything you find. Highly recommended.

I'm sorry that Vincent in Singapore didn't find these books useful, but they don't pretend to be books for those wanting to keep fish in small tanks - they are terrific field identification guides (as per the titles), with excellent photos and details of colour variations, locations, etc. Beautifully presented, and very comprehensive. Brilliant!

We met the trilogy in Little Cayman this year. We could identify everything we saw: coral, fish and creatures. It was our #1 priority for our next dive trip.

I started diving 2 years ago. Up until I ordered these books, I really didn't know what I was seeing. These 3 books are the absolute best books to own if you like diving or boating and live in Florida or the Caribbean. Every page has 3 full color glossy photos of fish, or creatures on it. The photos and info are very comprehensive and detailed.

My only qualm is that the listing says hard cover, so I was expecting 3 hard cover books, but instead received 3 soft cover books in a hard cover box. Hard cover or soft cover... I still couldn't be any happier with these books. I highly suggest!

Format: Paperback
While diving and snorkeling, in Jamaica, for a Marine Biology class, this set of books helped me work out the identification of many critters we were looking for and at.

Because of the colour prints, descriptions and layout of the books, I was able to find the most difficult of species we were trying to learn about in a very short period of time. I recommend this set to aument the Eugene H. Kaplan's (Peterson Field Guides) books on " Coral Reefs" and the "Southeastern and Caribbean Seashores."

We have used the Reef Identification series for years and this new update is a great addition -- many more fish are identified. The writeups about each fish are very detailed and explain behaviours and various color shadings well. The photos are excellent, and we have always been impressed by the amount of work and care that have gone into the series. This is the first time we have had the Reef Coral book and are as pleased with it as with the quality of the other two books.

The definitive bible of underwater fish, creature, and coral identification in the Caribbean. A staple in all Carib resorts, and liveaboard dive boats. A MUST for Carib divers.

Amazon lists the "Traveler's Set," which comes with a nylon carrying case, as a hardcover set. It is not. The cover is a flexible plasticized one. Nicer than typical paperback, and water resistant, but not a hardcover. One of the three books in the set also had a plastic slipcover on it -- I wish all three had that added protection.

Other than that, an excellent set of books for fish, creature and coral identification in the covered areas.
