Classic Darksite Diving is the long awaited companion volume to the globally acclaimed Diving in Darkness, published in 2003. While its predecessor is an instructional guide to activity in overhead environments, this latest publication presents all the necessary practical information relating to specific cave and mine diving sites.
The sites selected are classic popular venues of relatively easy access and these are described for the benefit of people who may be wholly unfamiliar with that site or area. Those individuals new to the sport, or indeed more experienced practitioners, will find all the information they need here to plan a visit. This “where to go” book contains an excellent cross section of venues to cater for all levels of ability. Contained in this lavishly illustrated work are a multitude of surveys, precise details of site location, access, contacts, history of exploration and, most importantly, what one can expect in terms of diving. Preferred equipment and other essential details regarding length, depth, water conditions, indeed all practical considerations, are set down in clear unambiguous descriptions. Additional information, including invaluable emergency procedures, is contained in several complementary appendices. This book will open a door to an exciting new world.
