Shipwrecks of the Caribbean
A Diver’s Guide
Martha Watkins Gilkes

7 3/8” x 9 3/4” • 160 pages • color photos • maps
ISBN 9781566564762 • paperback • $21.95

From the earliest days of discovery, the Caribbean has been synonymous with marine adventure. Many vessels and seafarers have met their fate—often in mysterious circumstances—in the Caribbean Sea.

Now, Martha Watkins Gilkes has traveled the length and breadth of the region to document the shipwrecks. She unravels the mystery behind many of these wrecks—from the infamous disasters to the long forgotten. She also has explored and written about many of the ships that have been deliberately sunk in recent years, offering unique homes for underwater creatures and marine plants.

In this practical and informative guide, the shipwrecks of each island are explored in turn offering history, trivia, advice, and location details.

A professional diver, Martha Watkins Gilkes started scuba diving when she was in college. Now owner and operator of a retail scuba store and travel company, she instructs, photographs, and models—all underwater. She lives on Antigua with her husband and diving companion.

Stan Waterman is an award-winning underwater cinematography—most notably, an “Emmy” for his work with ABC’s “The American Sportsman Show.” He was co-director of underwater photography for the film The Deep.
