Dispatched in 1 to 2 days
Let Dorset Dives by Will Appleyard take you on a personal journey to the 50 greatest dive sites the Dorset coastline offers.
There are so many opportunities to get were in Dorset against one of the UK’s most beautiful backdrops - the Jurassic coast.
A UNESCO world heritage site, the Dorset coast boasts seriously good scallop diving, sheltered, shallow or deep wreck, scenic reef dives, easy shore dives and daring drift dives.
Will Appleyard has chosen a selection of dive sites spanning the length of the Dorset coastline, all within a comfortable depth for the recreational diver, and some of the sites featured will certainly require diving more than once.
The wrecks in Dorset Dives by Will Appleyard are illustrated by Max Ellis, based on the original rough sketches John Liddiard made for Diver magazine’s ‘Wreck Tours’ feature, with minimal coloured backgrounds added. With a Foreword by Paul Rose.
Review of Dorset Dives
"This is an attractive book, a modern if much-simplified successor to the long-established but now out-of-print Dive Dorset.
It covers generally well-known dives out of Swanage, Poole, Portland and Lyme Regis, either by hardboat or club RIB.
It is bright and colourful, thanks to the generous supply of photos, mainly by Will Appleyard and Rob Roslyn.
The topside shots are evocative of summer days in Dorset, while the underwater photographs are generally of good quality, though inevitably laced with a smattering of the green and backscattered.
The descriptions of the 50 sites, of which about 60% are wrecks, are breezy, economical outlines. They are accompanied by concise notes on location, access, depth, things to look for and what to do if the dive is blown out (a feature that could get quite a lot of use).
There are three helpful location maps at the start. This overview of Dorset dives has been well thought-out and produced, and is an easy read." (DIVER magazine)
