A comprehensive guide to the southern islands of the Eastern Caribbean island chain, including Dominica, Martinique, St Lusia, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada, Tobago and Barbados. Only an hour's flying time from the better-known islands to the north, they offer sites infrequently dived, dive boats with six or fewer divers, and marine life rarely seen in more heavily dived areas (such as black coral, frogfish, seahorses and manta rays). The guide focuses on information. It contains a description of each island, including apres dive activities, an overview of the diving environment, rules, regulations and safety information, site plans and maps, and fact panels about marine life. The descriptions of the dive facilities are based on interviews with all operators and there are at-a-glance summary tables of the facilities.
