“Great for rock pool enthusiasts! Bought one for my grandson ( age 9)…..and one for me... Plenty of detail, great pictures and information. Easily superior to most other guides to life on the seashore although rather big to carry around for too long. A very nice book to browse though when planning your seaside holiday. Now where is my bucket and spade...?!” Customer Review

The contents are made very interesting through the carefully planned layout with superb photos and illustrations. Detail and explanations are interesting without being overly complicated. The book is a must for families and individuals wanting to make a visit to the coast or spend a day on the beach, educational & great fun to read and use. An excellently well written book on the subject of Marine Exploration.” Customer Review
