Lands around the world are different; cultures, lifestyles, economy, pollution. It’s something we often think about – how different will a country be when (and if) I get the chance to visit? Even simple things – what is the weather like? What will/would I need to pack? What are the cultural differences that I need to be aware of?
It has more recently come to my mind, that not only are the lands around the world different, so are the oceans.
Wild Dives is a book written by underwater photographers Nick Robertson-Brown and Caroline Robertson-Brown; both have degrees in biology from Manchester University, with Caroline also having a masters in animal behaviour. Nick has been awarded a fellowship from the Royal Photographic Society and also has a masters in teaching and both are passionate about marine conservation and hope that their images can inspire people to look after our seas and oceans.
What is a Wild Dive? One that gets you up close to amazing wild marine life, that makes your heart pump a little faster, and takes you to a remote and wild destination.
Highlighting many differences in our oceans, Wild Dives is a book filled with underwater adventures as it takes the reader to remote locations to explore ship wrecks and to experience some of the best, and sometimes weirdest, underwater spectacles.
With stunning photography, the book covers 25 of their most memorable diving adventures from around the world, including amazing sharks in The Bahamas, exploring smaller critters in caves and on wrecks and reefs, swimming with Giant Manta Rays in the Pacific and even going eyeball to eyeball with whales.
Wild Dives is a perfect book for those interested in underwater adventure, marine animals, school students or those who just want an interesting coffee table book.
