New SHIPWRECK Book  by Capt. Dan Berg

 
wreck valley 3rd edition shipwrecks of NY NJ CT book by Dan BergWRECK VALLEY III
By Capt. Dan Berg

The most comprehensive, accurate, illustrated collection of information, photographs, sketches and stories ever written about the shipwrecks that lie off Long Island, New York and New Jersey.

Soft cover, 8x10", 188 pages
printed in full color. $39.95 +P&H

The original Wreck Valley book was published back in 1986. At the time it was not only the first but the only book for area divers that detailed local shipwreck history and dive conditions. Capt. Dan's 2nd edition was printed in 1990 and became the most popular of his shipwreck publications. Wreck Valley III  is a completely new update, expanded and enhanced edition of the Wreck Valley books. Wreck Valley's 3rd edition covers the history, legend, present condition, aquatic life, and pertinent dive information on over 140 shipwrecks. This text includes over 550 illustrations, comprised of over 400 color photographs, 111 black and white historical photographs, 35 sketches, 20 side scan sonar images and nine 3D underwater shipwreck illustrations. Capt. Dan completely changed the books format and design to accommodate all of the research and images collected in 30 years of local shipwreck diving. The collection of historical photographs alone would take years of archive research to locate and would cost a small fortune if purchased separately. Many of these rare images have never before been published. Wreck Valley III includes a GPS list of accurate artificial reef and shipwreck locations. Divers, fisherman, marine historians, armchair sailors or anyone with a general interest in history, diving or the sea will surely find this book informative, fascinating, and the perfect addition to their library.

This is a MAJOR revision from the 2nd. printing 20 years ago. There are so many more full color photos of recovered artifacts.

We have used Dan Berg's shipwreck book series as "bibles" for all of our diving off the Jersey Shore over the last 25 years. Looking for excitement and challenges is hard to do without some sort of expert guidance. Dan Berg does this in all his books.

Myself and all of my dive buddies have tattered copies of his books that have been read, re-read and read again 100 times over. Prior to diving any wreck, it is 1,000 times better when you know the history and what other divers may have salvaged from the wreck. It makes the dive so much more exciting.
I recommend this book to ANY scuba diver ANYWHERE in the world that dives for joy of seeing, exploring and artifact hunting on ship wrecks old and new.

Thank you Dan Berg

Sincerely,
Jay Jessup

When I first started shipwreck diving in 1988 my copy of Dan's  "Long Island Shore Diver" was my handbook to finding all the great shipwrecks that were available by shore access.  Dan's illustrations, photographs and descriptions make shipwreck diving for a new diver easy and fun. When I got a hold of Wreck Valley it became my next hand book.  Every wreck that was dived by the great wreck divers was in there. Plus all the wrecks that only the real wreck divers would spend time to go after.  

We don't sell these books through the TDL website but feel that Capt. Dan's books are worth being in your library.  In all my years wreck diving I've yet to meet a diver who has more passion for shipwreck diving AND for sharing his information as Dan Berg.  If I was living back east again he and I would be diving together on a regular basis.  He's a great diver, a prolific writer, a good friend and I hope you enjoy his books.

"Your wreck diving guides have long been considered mandatory reading for local scuba divers. Your new Wreck Valley III book should be added to the collection of anyone interested in shipwrecks and wreck diving."
 
Capt. Steve Bielenda
Eastern Dive Boat Association

 

 
 
 
"Being a NE diver for over 40 years and diving many of the wrecks listed and described in Dan Berg's new Wreck Valley book, I am very happy to recommend this book to any diver wanting to know what North East wreck diving is all about. The book is loaded with pics and includes the history of quite a few popular shipwrecks in the NE area of the US. Well worth the money and highly recommended. "
