Abstract

‘New Frontiers in Marine Tourism’ is the first book of this kind to address and analyse this burgeoning tourism sector comprehensively. By integrating aspects such as the sustainability, safety, education, experiences and management of diving tourism the text highlights a variety of pressing topics related to the management of diving tourism, including:

* different types of diving locations and their particular characteristics and the geographical distribution of dive locations
* the growth and economic significance of diving tourism in destinations worldwide
* different motivations and typologies of diving tourists, their learning behaviour, knowledge of marine environments, and their interaction with flora and fauna.
* diver satisfaction, attitudes and preferences, education and interpretation, and compliance with regulations
* environmental impacts, and aspects of risk and health.
