About this book

This gorgeous book takes readers/viewers on a voyage of discovery along and beneath near-shore waters from Mendocino County's Pt. Arena south to San Mateo County's Pigeon Pt. and out to the Farallon Islands beyond the Golden Gate. Shargel's breathtaking photo essay of marine life along the north central California coast also shares stories of his underwater adventures gathering the photos. Covers the eleven Marine Protected Areas created in this area by California to protect the coast's biological diversity, underwater equivalents of Yosemite or Big Basin. The richness of the images allows one to embark upon a voyage of imagination and discovery beyond the crashing waves to experience the diverse life forms beneath the sea.

Experience a rainbow of color and diverse forms on par with Earth's most wondrous biospheres, a world so different from what's on land that it seems like another world. Yet it is part of California. Includes Pt. Arena, Saunders Reef, Black Point, Salt Point, Russian River, Bodega Head, Pt. Reyes Headlands, Duxbury Reef, Fitzgerald, Pescadero Pt., and Farallons. Among the book's goals is to increase public awareness of just what lies beyond our shores and the incomplete, ongoing efforts to assure its conservation.
