From the earliest days of discovery, the Caribbean has been synonymous with pioneering marine exploration and adventure. Island life is shaped by its relationship with the ocean and to the present day, when huricanes and fierce storms visit the region, the sea remains a threat as well as an extraordinary asset. Many vessels and seafarers have met their fate - often in mysterious circumstances. Martha Gilkes has travelled the length and breath of the region to unvravel the mysteries behind many of these shipwrecks - from the infamous disasters to the long forgotten. She has also dived on many of the wrecks which have been deliberately sunk in more recent years, where profuse marine growth is forming and unique underwater creatures may be encountered. Wreck diving presents new challenges and responsibilities for even the most experienced diver. There are ethical issues that have to be addressed. For divers, a wreck is an exciting adventure. For the owner of the ship and the relatives of the dead, it is a tragedy and in many islands laws are in place protecting these sites. In this practical and informative manual, the wrecks of each island are explored in turn, providing an historical journey as well as an illustrated guide to one of the most mysterious underwater experiences the Caribbean has to offer.
