Snorkel the World: Red Sea Coral Reef Guide is the ideal companion for anyone venturing to the Red Sea on holiday, or anybody fascinated by the Red Sea's famous coral reefs. It's the only guidebook specifically for those of us who enjoy getting up close and personal with the underwater world whilst sporting a set of over-sized goggles and breathing through a large plastic tube!
The book contains 250 species of fish, turtles, dolphins, invertebrates and corals that are commonly encountered when snorkelling in the Red Sea: those creatures that can be found in the upper few metres of the reef, the zone that can be readily explored with just a mask and snorkel. Each species is illustrated with a full colour image and description, together with information on its range, biology and characteristic behaviour.
This guide also contains a wealth of information on the geography and history of the Red Sea, an informative review of its marine habitats and tips on how to get the most out of your snorkelling adventure.

Ideal divers handbook too!
As a diver of many Red Sea holidays I have longed to stop carrying my Debelius Red Sea reef guide due to luggage restrictions. I found this book by chance and at the price thought it was worth a risk.
Having now looked at it entirely, it is incredibly good value with all the photos of high quality even when expanded to full screen.
This will be just as useful as my previous guide book but a lot easier to take with me.
Extremely good value at £1.99
Handy identification guide with great images
I bought this book for a recent holiday to the Red Sea and was really pleased that I did. The book's ideal for anyone like me who enjoys a spot of snorkelling or swimming on holiday and would like to know the names of the fish and corals that you come across. The colour images of the different fish and animal species are great and the book has interesting chapters on the history, geography and wildlife of the region. The book's easy to use and is at a bargain price.
