Former BBC newsman John McIntyre has carved himself a niche in the diving market, producing exquisitely filmed DVDs focusing on some of the world’s best reef, wall and wreck diving. His last two DVDs, Red Sea Wreck Heaven and Caribbean Wreck Heaven, were produced in conjunction with Sport Diver UK magazine to accompany its annual A5-sized dive guide, Dive Destinations.
This year, Dive Destinations has grown in size to become The Ultimate Dive Destinations, a lavishly produced A4 guide to some of the world’s best diving experiences – shark diving, wall diving, drift diving, ice diving, cave diving, wreck diving, etc – as chosen by an expert panel, including John, fellow TV presenter Miranda Krestovnikoff (of Wreck Detectives and Coast fame) and acclaimed underwater photographers Lawson Wood and Tony White.
It is again accompanied by a John McIntyre DVD – Red Sea Odyssey: The Ultimate Red Sea Guide. Red Sea Odyssey is a companion-piece to Red Sea Wreck Heaven, and between the two DVDs, they cover all the best spots in the Egyptian Red Sea. This latest DVD focuses on the top dives in Egyptian waters, so there are chapters on the legendary Ras Mohamed, The Brothers, Daedelus, Zabargad, Rocky Island, St John’s and Elphinstone. John has managed to capture the majesty of these phenomenal dive sites in all their glory, showing the dramatic walls, prolific marine life and graceful pelagics, including turtles, sharks and rays.
The package of the dive guide and the DVD is priced at £6.95 – making it an ideal stocking filler for Christmas!
