The long-awaited, fully expanded and updated successor to the Pacific Northwest’s diving bible – 141 Dives in the Protected Waters of Washington State and British Columbia – is now available from the Mountaineers Books. 151 Dives in the Protected Waters of Washington State and British Columbia presents essential information on the very best dives in the area.
The inland sea of the Pacific Northwest is a diver’s paradise. Because so much of the coastline is protected from surf, the Northwest is one of the safest and most accessible diving areas in the world. Bursting with life in a rainbow of colors, getting wet in this area is an irresistible opportunity for any diver.
Betty Pratt-Johnson has spent more than 33 years as a diving pioneer in these diverse waters. In 151 Dives, she presents the absolute best dives the area has to offer:
Included in the guide are dives for beginning to advanced divers, as well as sites suitable for technical divers and snorkelers. Also included is important safety information for varying conditions, nautical charts, tide tables and GPS data for every site.
In addition contact information for dive shops, charter boats and dive resorts are included. Divers will be led to unique locations where they’ll find shipwrecks, artificial reefs, and a glorious abundance of sea life. From the Puget Sound up through the Straight of Georgia to the Queen Charlotte Strait, divers can choose from gentle drifts, shallow reefs, plunging drop-offs and current wind-swept passages. With special sections on archeological diving, marine life conservation, underwater photography and night diving, plus a thorough list of resources and contacts and service information for each region, this book has it all covered.
