The Antarctic Dive Guide is the first and only dive guide to the seventh continent, until recently the exclusive realm of scientific and military divers. Today, however, the icy waters of Antarctica have become the extreme destination for recreational divers wishing to explore beyond the conventional and observe the strange marine life that abounds below the surface. This book is packed with information about the history of diving in Antarctica and its wildlife, and features stunning underwater photography.

The Antarctic Dive Guide covers 31 key dive sites on the Antarctic Peninsula and South Georgia and includes maps and detailed guidance on how best to explore each site. Essential information is also provided on how to choose and prepare for travel to this remote region, and diving techniques for subzero waters. This book is an indispensable resource for anyone considering diving in Antarctica, and an exciting read for anyone interested in this little-explored underwater world.

This fully revised and updated third edition:

  • Covers 4 new dive sites
  • Features revised and updated information for the other 27 sites covered
  • Includes new sections on the Sea Leopard Project and natural product chemistry from Antarctic marine organisms

Lisa Eareckson Kelley began working aboard Expedition ships in 2000. Most at home in the polar regions, she spends over half the year in the Arctic and Antarctic. During the Austral winter of 2010, she was the station manager at Palmer Station for the United States Antarctic Program. Passionate about the future of Antarctic and Arctic tourism, she is an active member of the International Association of Antarctic Tour Operators and the Association of Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators.


"[F]rigid descriptions come with beautiful color photographs of sea cucumbers, seals, sea stars, salps, and an array of other marine organisms. . . . The Antarctic Dive Guide does an admirable job at . . . conveying the joys and the risks involved at entering such a beautiful, alien part of the world."--Brian Switek, National Geographic Laelaps blog

"Impressive in its readability and accessibility to a forlorn land most of us will never encounter."--Gabriel Thoumi, Monga Bay

"This book turned out to be much more than I had expected. If you're into scuba diving and dream of the ultimate dive, you really need to get this one!"--Dave Lewis, Birds from Behind Blog
