Diving Guide Series Updated for 2019

New for 2019, Tim Rock has just updated his diving and snorkeling guide series, enhancing some of his most popular titles. The series includes guides to Palau & Yap, Truk Lagoon, Pohnpei & Kosrae, Guam & the Mariana Islands by Rock and Bali and Raja Ampat & Northeast Indonesia by Rock and author Simon Pridmore.

Photojournalist Rock has lived in Micronesia in the Northwest Pacific for more than three decades. This region is considered to be the epicentre of marine biodiversity and, because of that, has become a Mecca for adventurous divers worldwide. The Bali and Raja Ampat & Northeast Indonesia guides in this series were co-authored in collaboration with Simon Pridmore, author of a number of books for divers and a long-time Indonesian resident.

The five books are richly detailed and beautifully illustrated, giving prospective visitors useful advice and direction to help them plan their trips and providing them with a wonderful souvenir of their journey when they return.

All are available in paperback and e-book versions via Amazon stores and iTunes stores worldwide, as well as Tim’s own Blurb bookstore.
