The Great Diving Adventure
Horace Dobbs

From the flyleaf: If anyone had said to me in the 1950s that one day I would … dive into the crystal waters of a cave in the middle of an island in the Bahamas, find a gold ring on the seabed of the Mediterranean, explore the Great Barrier Reef, swim with sea lions in the Galapagos Islands, investigate an undersea graveyard for ships in Micronesia, spend more time swimming with wild dolphins in the sea than anyone else in the world, … and be shipwrecked on a remote island in the Philippines, I would have suggested they had a quiet word with a friendly psychiatrist. Yet for me, all those things happened.  … I hope that I will pass on to you the thought that if dreams can come true to me they can also come true for you.
