The Captain’s Guide to Wrecks and Reefs

Florida’s East and West Coast ** Florida Keys ** The Bahamas

Detailed LORAN and GPS Locations for over 1,000 sites plus much more

From Spanish galleons laden with gold to Nazi U-boats in a watery grave, the seas off the coast of Florida and the Bahamas offer some of the most exciting dives imaginable. Since Mel Fisher’s spectacular discovery of the sunken treasure ship Nuestra Senora de Atocha in 1985, thousands of divers have searched for wrecks in the Caribbean for fun and profit. Now legendary diving captain Laney T. Rinehart will guide you to the greatest reefs and wrecks in the best diving waters in the world–the Florida coasts and the Bahamas.

The Captain’s Guide to Wrecks and Reefs provides detailed information on over 1,000 diving locations. Each entry provides a preassigned waypoint to help locate the site quickly, the site’s common name, LORAN TDs for Latitude and Longitude, exact GPS coordinates, dive ratings (from experienced to training divers), and depth. Captain Rinehart also provides a description of each site with the direction of the reef or the lay of the ship, the type of bottom, visibility, type of fish and historical background. Filled with detailed wreck drawings and stunning underwater photography, The Captain’s Guide to Wrecks and Reefs also contains informative articles on how to locate a wreck, anchoring and safe diving procedures, tips on underwater photography, how to deal with sharks, and safety for spearfishing. The book includes Captain Rinehart’s entertaining tales of his exploits at sea and recollections of memorable dives.

Whether you’re a dive master, instructor, open water certified, or just in training, The Captain’s Guide to Wrecks and Reefs will provide a lifetime of adventure and maybe, just maybe, a fortune in booty.
