From highlands to islands, wrecks to reefs and caves, this new-style guide will whet your appetite for UK scuba diving. These are over 50 personal favourites at some of the UK’s most popular underwater destinations. Dorset Dives author Will Appleyard and his team of experienced collaborators share their picks as they showcase our beautiful coastal locations. Many of the dive sites featured in this new guide already appear regularly in avid UK divers’ log books. Others are visited by only those with local knowledge and some rarely see divers at all. All are special in some way to those who have contributed and evidence for those to whom the UK underwater is still a mystery that once you tame these wild and temperate seas there really are some magnificent experiences to be had.
As a wise man once said ‘There’s no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong thermal protection’ (paraphrased). So, demist your mask and embrace the emerald, don your drysuit and conquer the cold… this book shows what incredible quality is waiting to be found if you just scratch the surface of UK diving. Wild and Temperate Seas is an introduction to some of the UK’s best dives covering over 50 accessible sites at 15 beautiful locations across the nation. The book includes wrecks and reefs, boat and shore dives. Compiled by experienced contributors and with stunning images by award-winning underwater photographers, the book is perfect for anyone new to or considering scuba diving in the UK and those seeking inspiration.
