Our 2nd edition includes 220 new photos of beautiful shells, outrageously camouflaged crabs, a superb collection of exquisite nudibranchs and the most outrageous octopus ever discovered in the Caribbean!

You know the fishes and can identify the reef critters, but what about the animals that actually form a coral reef?

Awesome Reference Set!

By

This is a great reference set. Being a new diver, I still encounter lot of fish I've never seen before or an umfaimilar with their various phases. So far, I have been able to find every fish I had a question about in these books. They have great photos and detailed facts about fish, coral, creatures etc. Definately worth the money!

 
4.0

Finally I can identify what I see!

By

The books are well made but heavy. I probably will not take them on trips requiring air travel due to the weight added to a checked bag and too heavy to take all 3 in my carry on.

 
5.0

This is the definative underwater ID set

By

While you can't take it with you on a dive, it's great for use after the dive to identify what you saw during the dive. Usually this involves reviewing the images on your digital camera. The books are set up so you look for general shapes and descriptions to find the appropriate sections in which to look for your particular fish, coral or "critter."

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
ALAN C  Great book set for any Caribebean dive. Would highly recommend this to anyone to learn more about what they see diving.
CLARK P  My wife and I dive in Bonaire, and we love the fish, coral, and critters. This collection has been marvelous to help us identify the life under the water.
Debbie G  What is the publish date? Is it 2002? The description says 3rd edition, but I want to be sure I'm getting the newest, most up to date. Thank you.
Monica s  Published in Feb. 2002, this is the most up to date.
Shopper  are these books or dvds?
SAMUEL Q  Books. Full of high quality photos taken in the wild. A very helpful set of identification keys.
CLARK P  Books. And they are great! We took them on a Caribbean vacation last year, and loved them. Biggest problem is the weight. But ehy are great reference books.
BILLY N  Books!
ILENA N  books
WILLIAM M  They are books
robbin m  do they all come in dvd I see that you can get the reef fish identification in dvd but I would also like reef creatures?
JAMES V  They are books. I use them a lot to identify things after a trip. I just wish they were lighter so they could go along with me on trips. With weight restrictions now they are to heavy. That is my only complaint.
ROGER B  Books
CHRISTINE W  Hi there ... I have the books - looks like there is a separate option for DVD - search on Fish Identification DVD and you should find - looks like the price is $39.95 for the DVDs - when I come back from a trip I sift through my photos with the books and identify them - it's fun ... I may buy the DVDs though. Good luck Christine
