Scuba Diving Books

We might have sharp scuba diving skills underwater like hovering, mask clearing and using alternate air soource. We can master these skills by practicing them enough.

Our academic knowledge about underwater physics, physiology, dive desease, dive tables and etc may also be good.

However, a scuba diver should always learn more to be able to be a better diver. Self improvement is the key.

For this purpose, we should read some informative books and watch educational documentaries (NatGeo is my favorite).

Today, I will suggest you to 6 books about scuba diving that I am sure you will improve yourself and become a better scuba diver than today.

Let’s start.

Fifty Places to Dive Before You Die

Fifty Places to DiveIn this book, written by Chris Santella, we are introduced fifty dive spots.

These dive spots are all around the world.

As far as I have seen, writer has been a good traveller. Chris has succeeded to evaluate the dive spots in a curious scuba diver’s shoes.

A golden bed-side traveler guide.

Scuba Diving

Scuba Diving, written by Dennis Graver, will simply teach you the basics of recreational scuba diving. Scuba Diving

Dennis Graver is an experienced scuba diving instructor. He has prepared this book not only for beginners, but also for instructors and experienced divers.
This book sold over 100.000 copies around the globe.
I especially liked the photographs used in Scuba Diving. Throw it into your backpack and re-read when you find time.

The Complete Diver

The Complete DiverThis guide, written by Alex Brylske Ph.D, is much more scientific and will let you know about the history of this outdoor sport.

The Complete Diver talks about the latest scuba diving technology as well as the future of recreational scuba. Decompression theory, ‘how to avoid’s, scuba diving medicine and safe diving practices are some chapters of this valuable guide.

Interested in science and history of scuba diving?

Then The Complete Diver will help you a lot!

Dive Atlas of the World

Dive Atlas of the World, written by Jack Jackson, will give you a detailed information about the dive Dive Atlas of the Worldspots around the world.

Jackson not only introduced the well-known dive sites, but also the recent explored ones. Dive spots are described and experts commented on each of them in Dive Atlas of the World. I really liked the maps in this guide. All spots are clearly mapped. A fascinating dive locater that will help you in your next dive adventure.

Diver Down

Diver DownDo you like Air Crash Investigation on National Geographic Channel?

Yes, we can learn a lot from mistakes and neglects. Diver Down: Real World Scuba Accidents and How to Avoid Them, written by Michael Ange, is talking about scuba accidents around the world. Well, when I started to read this book, I felt like watching a horror movie (to be honest), but the best way to learn about scuba diving safety is to know about the reality. Sad experiences occur. But if we don’t take lessons from them, these experiences will go on living.

An enervator but highly informative book.

How to Beat Mask Removal Skill

This e-book is especially written for scuba diver and / or scuba diver candidates taking their Open Water Diver Course and having difficulties with the mask removal and replacement skill.

How to Beat Mask Removal Skill, written by Murat Demirag (Yes, that’s me) is a complete how-to book with killer tips and exercises designed for beating this skill and get you your Open Water Diver certificate. If you are already a certified scuba diver but not feeling quite comfortable with mask removal and replacement skill, I suggest you to buy this e-book.

You’ll see how easier it will be to perform this skill in your next dive.

A helpful guide that I suggest.
