Snorkel the World: Red Sea Coral Reef Guide is the ideal companion for anyone venturing to the Red Sea on holiday, or anybody fascinated by the Red Sea's famous coral reefs. It's the only guidebook around specifically for those of us who enjoy getting up close and personal with the underwater world whilst sporting a set of over-sized goggles and breathing through a large plastic tube!
The Red Sea Coral Reef Guide contains 250 species of fish, turtles, dolphins, invertebrates and corals that are commonly encountered when snorkelling in the Red Sea: those creatures that can be found in the upper few metres of the reef, the zone that can be readily explored with just a mask and snorkel. Each species is illustrated with a full colour image and description, together with information on their range, biology and characteristic behaviour.
This guide also contains a wealth of information on the geography and history of the Red Sea itself, plus an informative review of its marine habitats and top tips on how to get the most out of your Red Sea snorkelling adventure.
Like coral reefs everywhere, the Red Sea's reefs are under threat. The Red Sea Coral Reef Guide includes an overview of the pressures that the Red Sea reefs face today and some of the initiatives underway to help safeguard their future; projects every visitor can actively support.
