    The real-world guide for divers who want to enjoy their sport to the fullest

    More than half of the 1.5 million people who achieve scuba certification each year are stymied in their pursuit of the sport because they lack time and money to enjoy the exotic diving experiences they've read about, and don't want to be confined to group dives. The Certified Diver's Handbook is the only guide to help them create their own diving adventures on any budget, on any schedule, in waters local or distant, and without the restrictions of group demands. Thirty-year diving veteran and photojournalist Clay Coleman provides the insider's tips and how-to advice divers need to equip, plan, and execute their own diving expeditions. Divers will learn how to:

    Buy or rent the best SCUBA equipment at the best prices
    Plan dives to maximize enjoyment and safety
    Find great diving sites close to home
    Master underwater rescue procedures and shore- and night-diving techniques
    Explore wrecks, reefs, and underwater caves
