20 YEARS AFTER INITIAL PUBLICATION OF THE FUNDAMENTALS OF BETTER DIVING, GUE RELEASES AN ENTIRELY NEW EDITION AVAILABLE IN SIX LANGUAGES
One of the most influential texts in diving is entirely rewritten, detailing a new vision for scuba diving with a clearer picture of the theory and practices behind performance diving strategies that support safe, efficient, and fun scuba diving. The new edition is available in English, German, Italian, Spanish, Korean, and Chinese.
January 14, 2021, Florida—The newest revision of The Fundamentals of Better Diving charts a fresh course for those seeking to get the most out of their diving, demonstrating what is distinctive in both the theory as well as the practice of Global Underwater Explorers (GUE). This book is a treasure trove of useful information regarding skill enhancement, team orientation, and risk mitigation—invaluable for experienced technical divers as well as beginners.
While the first edition of this book defined and popularized the value of standard protocols, this edition provides a clearer prescription for divers seeking to adopt sound diving practices while augmenting their diving capacity and underwater readiness. Enhancing underwater competency reduces stress and results in a more joyful and expansive diving experience. Readers will find ten definitive chapters filled with everything from dive planning and underwater stability to refined propulsion and diving physiology.
The Fundamentals of Better Diving, available in six languages, can be purchased through GUE.com for $24.95/€19.95, as well as directly from GUE, some Halcyon Dealers, and GUE Dive Centers.
Global Underwater Explorers, a US 501(c)(3), began with a group of divers whose love of underwater exploration grew naturally into a desire to protect those environments. In 1998, they created a unique organization dedicated to high-quality diver education with the goal of supporting aquatic research that advances conservation and safely expands exploration of the underwater world.

Diving projects, or expeditions—think Bill Stone’s Wakulla Springs 1987 project, or the original explorations of the Woodville Karst Plain’s Project (WKPP)—helped give birth to technical diving, and today continue as an important focal point and organizing principle for communities like Global Underwater Explorers (GUE). The organization this year unveiled a new Project Diver program, intended to elevate “community-led project dives to an entirely new level of sophistication.” Here, authors Guy Shockey and Francesco Cameli discuss the power of projects and take us behind the scenes of the new program.
