Dive Wight and Hampshire
By Martin Pritchard and Kendall McDonald. Underwater World Publications
The waters off the Isle of Wight and Hampshire provide some of the most exciting diving in Britain. The casualties of two thousand years of seaborne traffic lie in huge numbers on the seabed in the areas covered by this book – so many that the authors have added a shipwreck register of over 1200 lost ships.
Not all Wight and Hampshire diving are on wrecks. These waters teem with marine life, and the dramatic underwater scenery is not hard to find. Parts of the Solent can be murky, but the visibility elsewhere is often excellent and sometimes unbelievable. Illustrated in colour and black-and-white. 147.5mm x 210mm softback. 214pp.
