I was lucky enough to be one of the first people to feast my eyes on this incredible guide. Jones and Shimlock have long been known for their world renown photography but now they have come up with this well researched, easy to use, and incredibly informative scuba diving guide to one of the finest and most remote regions in the world. It leads you to places you would never find on your own and helps makes diving in the Raja Ampat a truly incredible experience.
If you're considering diving in this remote area of the world do yourself a favor and grab this guide before you go. You'll thank these two experts many times over for revealing their secrets and filling you with valuable knowledge of the region.

This is an absolutely excellent reference to what I consider the world's premier tropical diving location. The book reveals a plethora of previously unknown dive sites, with useful maps and all essential details provided. I've now used the book on two separate dive trips and have found it to be extremely accurate and useful, not to mention the fantastic photos by the very accomplished authors. This book, already well worn, is now an essential part of my field kit for West Papuan dive adventures.

Sure, your live-aboard or resort will know where 90% of the best dive sites are, but after dozens of months exploring Raja Ampat Burt Jones and Maurine Shimlock have uncovered a few spots the more established boats/resorts don't know about. Fantastic photography (not that we'd expect otherwise from this remarkable husband and wife team, but not everyone throws in their best images for a guidebook!), detailed descriptions -- with GPS coordinates (!) included for those boats you're on that are new to the area -- and an overall good read that'll get you hankering to go diving there now. Diving Indonesia's Raja Ampat is truly an indispensable piece of gear for any trip you're planning (or, heck, even a great souvenir of) this remarkable destination.

It's a rare gift when a guidebook is both beautiful and practical. The photos of the marine life in Raja Ampat, the most biologically-diverse coral reef system in the world, are exquisite and make me want to dive in (again). Burt Jones and Maurine Shimloock have a fine eye for the dramatic big fish as well as the hard-to-see little critters. And the information about the best dive sites is useful and concise. This guide should prove to be a handy reference to some of the world's best diving. The maps are useful, too. So, two bits of advice. Make sure you dive Raja Ampat, and keep this book on hand for when your friends ask "what did you do on your vacation?"
