Mediterranean Seasonal Dive Planner

The season for calmer water is May through to September when air temperatures can get very hot (100°F/37°C) yet the water below the thermocline can stay at 57°F (14°C) so Mediterranean divers will be seen wearing thicker wetsuits (or even drysuits) than you would expect.

Editor's Book Picks for Scuba Diving Mediterranean
including France, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Cyprus, Croatia

The books below are my favorites about diving in this part of the world All books are available at a significant discount from; just follow the links. -- BD

Indo-Pacific Coral Reef Field Guide
by Gerald R. Allen, Roger Steene.

I was trying to pack light for a change. Surely the Solomon Sea would have good identification books aboard. Not so; the only book on the boat belonged to a fellow passenger. It was one that I had not seen before, the Indo-Pacific Coral Reef Field Guide, by two of the best fish guys around, Gerry Allen and Roger Steene. The problem was this fellow passenger kept it in a plastic baggie most of the trip and I had to beg to see it. Great book, good traveling size, and it covers everything from fish, shells, marine plants, mammals, corals, and invertebrates to sea birds and more. Now I've got my own, and it won't do you any good to beg me to borrow it. This is one of two books that I will not travel to the Pacific without. Good for travel to the Red Sea, East Africa, Seychelles, Mauritius, Maldives, Andaman Sea, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Australia, Micronesia, Polynesia, and Hawaii, it has 1,800 color illustrations in a 6x8 1/2 paperback format with 378 pages. $39.95.
