About this book

This book is an underwater journey around the African coast, richly portrayed in more than 145 photographs that draw us into a breathtakingly beautiful and sometimes strange underwater world.

Offering a worthy and exciting alternative to the continent's more familiar terrestrial landscapes and wildlife, this photographic essay not only covers all major marine habitats, from kelp forests to coral reefs, but also features a wide range of marine species in action, from iconic apex predators such as great white and tiger sharks, whales and dolphins, to many of the lesser known but equally fascinating creatures such as jellyfish and starfish.

Each photograph tells a story, unearths a bizarre marine creature or provides a detailed and fresh look at a familiar subject; together they make a resounding statement for marine conservation.
