Duikgids Malediven Dive Maldives, A Guide to the Maldives Archipelago - Atoll Editions

€ 56.50

Duikgids Malediven Atlas of the Maldives includes a number of island changes caused by the December 26th, 2004 Tsunami

Dive Maldives is a detailed guide to diving in all the tourist atolls of the Maldives Archipelago. It contains 114 computer generated maps with descriptions of over 270 dive sites based on the author's personal research over 12 years.

The maps are divided into three types: atoll, region and site maps. The atoll maps show the resorts in blue type with traditional island names in brackets. Also shown are uninhabited islands, reefs, Protected Marine Areas, heliports, channel names, and some of the well known dive site locations.

The region maps show the same features but in more detail with all the dive site locations described in this book.
The dive site maps are useful references for divers and show the topography and scale of the reef. Through the use of symbols for features such as caves, overhangs, saddles and canyons, as well as commonly seen fish and marine life, divers get a predive glimpse of what they can expect to see during the dive.

Scattered throughout the book are 191 photographs with informative captions. All fish mentioned are listed in a separate index at the back and are grouped by class and family, with both their common and scientific name reported for easy identification.

For those divers who have never been to this remote nation of 1190 islands, there is a useful section with practical information for travelers and divers, and an up to date index of resorts and liveaboard vessels.

Besides the diving related material, Dive Maldives covers other important aspects of this wonderful archipelago, including island history, Indian Ocean maritime history and shipwrecks, coral reef ecosystem and environmental problems.
