Kenya's reefs are protected by five marine parks and are some of the biggest in Africa.
Indonesia has 6000 inhabited islands: no wonder some of them, like the Kei Islands, are only just opening up to divers.
The second largest island in the Mediterranean, Sardinia is surrounded by marine caves and cliffs shearing into the sea.
This fabulous world scuba diving map can be yours.
The gorgeous illustrated map shows the world's best places to dive and we have six to give away in our prize draw just for SCUBA News subscribers.
Five of the maps on offer have a re-writeable whiteboard coating. Fantastic for recording where you've dived and when, or highlighting which of the world-class dives pictured you aim to do next.
You also have a chance to win a museum-quality jumbo canvas print on heavy, 100% cotton cloth measuring 150 x 90 cm (59″ x 35″) worth $140. Beautiful artwork for your home.
The maps show not only over 500 of the planet’s best places to dive but information about the type of dive and the underwater features. From the barracuda and shark diving in Sipadan, to Baja California via Italy’s Secca della Columbara – get excited about your next dive trip.
Completely illustrated by hand, the maps are designed to spark your wanderlust and animate your inner traveller. Made old-school style – with pen and paper – all the drawings are by illustrator Lars Seiffert. The maps are lovingly produced by the Awesome Maps company.
Entry is free to all SCUBA News subscribers. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org with "World Dive Map Draw" as the subject.
Help Needed from Disabled Divers
We are conducting research on disabled diving and would appreciate any disabled divers, or instructors of disabled divers, completing our questionnaire. Cressi, one of the top manufacturers of diving gear, has given us several prizes for completing the questionnaire.
The primary goal of this research is to determine the influence of scuba diving on the overall quality of life of disabled divers and their instructors.
The questionnaire is at https://goo.gl/forms/DsGfqe48YRq14m2F3 and is available in English, Italian, Spanish and German.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

I'm desperately trying to get hold of a book by Richard Field called REEF FISHES OF OMAN. I recently moved here and literally want to take up this sport having fallen in love with snorkelling in these waters . Do you know where I could get it?
