The first list in this Section is of dive book distributors; write or call for a free catalog. Some companies on this list also publish their own scuba books. The second list contains internet addresses of comprehensive scuba sites; in turn, each site contains many links -- to books, dive shops, on-line magazines, scuba resorts, news groups, etc. Like all web sites, the ones listed here are subject to a change of address. However, since they are all inter- linked in some fashion, by starting at any one site you should be able to "surf" the web and retrieve large amounts of scuba-related information.
