By boat, from shore, or by dive-kayak, enjoy exciting dives in Washington and British Columbia’s famous emerald waters. • Includes nautical charts, maps, photographs and GPS coordinates for every boat dive. • Provides contact information for 40 dive shops, 7 charter boats, and 13 marinas. • Scuba divers are drawn to the waters of Washington and British Columbia for their abundant sea life, artificial reefs, and fascinating wrecks. In 151 Dives, Betty Pratt-Johnson focuses on the waters she knows best: that of Washington and British Columbia. She has personally completed each dive and chosen them for this new guidebook based on the special features that divers go searching for: wrecks, marine parks, and sea life such as octopus, wolf eels, dolphin, salmon and countless varieties of cold water corals, among others.
There are dives here that will appeal to both snokelers and scuba divers, with a good selection accessible from both points on shore or from a boat. Diving in Washington’s Puget Sound is an adventure into the same waters that make British Columbia an international diving destination.
BETTY PRATT-JOHNSON is the author of two “bibles” of the diving world: 99 Dives: From the San Juan Islands in Washington to the Gulf Islands and Vancouver Island in British Columbia and 101 Dives: From the Mainland of Washington and British Columbia. Both books won the prestigious Outdoor Writers of Canada Book Award of Merit. Betty’s writing and photographs have appeared in Diver, Oceans, BC Outdoors, Western Living, Reader’s Digest, and The New York Times.
