A hugely popular guide to the best and most luxurious diving on the planet, packed with stunning photography

Overview

From Costa Rica to Mozambique, Florida to Fiji, twenty-six destinations - including four amazing dive boats - offer something for everyone, pairing each region's most spectacular dive sites with the ultimate places to stay. Step aboard the Aggressor II in the Caribbean to snorkel with humpback whales and their newborn calves, or simply watch their tails slap from the comfort of the boat's outdoor hot tub. Float over an endless carpet of coral on the Great Barrier Reef, or take a private picnic to one of Lizard Island's pristine white-sand beaches. Backward-roll into a scene of circling sharks straight out of a James Bond movie at Muri Muri, or play it safe and soak up the breathtaking beauty of Bora Bora.

There used to be a trade-off between diving and style: world-class hideaways were miles from any underwater activity, while exceptional diving meant sleeping in a makeshift shack. Now you no longer have to choose. With Dive in Style, you can get close to ancient sea turtles and gliding manta rays, multicolored fish and brilliantly adaptive octopuses, and then put your feet up at one of the world's most luxurious hotels.

In this new edition six resorts are included for the first time: Wakaya Club in Fiji, Vamizi in Mozambique, Four Seasons Bora Bora in French Polynesia, Zighy Bay in Oman, Amanyara in the Turks and Caicos and Wakatobi in Indonesia. The information about the dive centers and hotels has been updated throughout, and there are some 200 breathtaking new photographs.
