Off South Africa's Maputaland coast lie some of the most exciting coral reefs in the world - and some of the most southerly.
Despite being a mecca for divers they maintain an amazing diversity of life and provide occasions to encounter some rare and seldom seen marine species. You can dive with pregnant Raggedtooth sharks and whale sharks - and all that after some of the most exciting boat rides on the planet.
This is where I made more than a thousand dives during the 1990s and this book is a (mostly visual) diary of those magic moments in my life - it is one of a series of these diaries I am compiling from my shoebox of photos, drawings and thoughts that normally just gather dust in forgotten corners.
