Here in pictures and words, you will encounter the familiar, like puffins and penguins; the fantastic, like the Nassau grouper, which can change colors and scale patterns to match its surroundings; the finicky, like the cleaner wrasse, which removes parasites from other fish; the fearsome, like sharks, stingrays and high domed hogfish with powerful jaws that can crush most hard shelled animals; and the frolicsome, like the sea otter.
Dee Scarr is an environmentalist and experienced naturalist whose goal is to help you better understand marine creatures - first-hand on TOUCH THE SEA® dives, or through her writings and slide presentations. A PADI scuba and specialty instructor, Scarr has published three books: Touch the Sea, Coral's Reef, and The Gentle Sea, and her articles and photos appear in The New Guide to the Bonaire Marine Park, Dive Training, Skin Diver, and other publications. Touch the Sea participants have fed anemones, tickled fish, met morays, befriended octopuses, been grabbed by crinoids and manicured by cleaner shrimp. The options are limitless. TOUCH THE SEA® dives take place in the world-renowned waters of the Bonaire Marine Park. In "Touch the Sea", Scarr shares her interactions with marine friends, including moray eels Adelle Davis and Popcorn, peacock flounder Oliver Twist, and Cheryl Tiegs Shark. Nonfiction, color photographs.
