About this book

Reef Finder is the world’s first searchable field guide printed on polypropylene, meaning that you can take it underwater. It answers the fundamental question: “What kind of thing is that?” …while you are diving. By searching a Visual Index for easy to understand shapes (e.g. fingers, spines, spirals), textures or concepts (e.g. holes, tentacles). You can even search by “sediments”. The Reef Finder is aimed at recreational divers, dive instructors, dive boats and businesses, snorkelers, reef walkers, students, naturalists, scientists.

Traditional guides are arranged in scientific order which is a fatal flaw for learning. They assume you know what “kind” of thing you are trying to ID and where to look in their book in the first place. The Reef Finder’s Visual Index solves the ID problem for divers without assuming you have biological training – now for the first time you can explore, discover, learn and communicate with others – underwater!

When it comes to ease of use the Reef Finder has no competition. Use the Visual Index to look for the shape of the critter in front of you, then choose a Gallery page to confirm. Think of it as Visual Hyperlinking – it’s a process the publisher calls WYSIWYLF – What You See Is What You Look For. The Reef Finder only tells you about things you can actually see underwater. With no technical terms or prior knowledge required there’s nothing to get between you and learning. And after the dive you know exactly what to look for in traditional field guides, making them more useful too.

The Reef Finder is designed to be both simple and deep: it’s the perfect fast-start ID tool for beginners as well as a powerful “answer anything” reference for instructors, trainers and students. Developed over 3 years and tested by dozens of biologists and dive instructors the Reef Finder is innovative, accurate, practical and tough. It’s the world’s first comprehensive field guide that you can actually take underwater.

Taking care of your Reef Finder:
There is nothing harsher on field equipment than tropical sun and salt water, so here are some tips for keeping your BYOGUIDE in good shape:
- do wash your guide in fresh water after diving - open each page in turn and towel dry before storage
- do not leave your guide exposed to sunlight for extended periods
- do not allow sand to lodge between the pages as it will scratch the ink finish
- do not allow direct contact with chemicals: petrol, sunscreen, insect repellent etc.
- do not allow heavy weights to crush the spiral binding e.g. SCUBA tanks
