Below Freezing is the first and only dive guide to the Antarctic. Until recently the exclusive realm of scientific and military divers, this icy wilderness has become the extreme destination for recreational divers wishing to explore beyond the conventional. Detailing 27 dive sites on the Antarctic Peninsula & South Georgia with maps, photographs and descriptions, the guide is packed with information and features vivid color photographs of the strange marine life of these waters, which remain at a temperature of -1°C/29°F throughout the year.

Including sections if underwater photography, the history of Antarctic diving, how to choose and prepare for the travel to this remote region, and diving techniques for subzero waters, this book is an indispensable resource for anyone considering diving the seventh continent, and an exciting read for anyone interested in this little-explored underwater world.
