Received the Reef Finder yesterday. It’s simply wonderful! If I was a beginner diver, it’s exactly what I would wish to have. So much instant learning in such a small package. So practical and quite frankly, magical – opening the mysteries of the underwater world in 51 pages!
I highly recommend the “Indo Pacific Coral Finder”. I field tested it this summer in Palawan. It is very accurate and does a great job of covering the major genera and some dominant species. Every dive operation in the Indo-Pacific should have at least one (I could hardly keep it away from the resort staff), and it will help alleviate the ‘overwhelmed head-aches’ experienced by many Caribbean researchers when they first visit these high-diversity areas. It is not as comprehensive as Veron’s encyclopedic “Corals of the World” on which it is based, but is infinitely easier to carry into the field!

I really feel that the Reef Finder will shine in an educational setting were students undertaking scuba and snorkelling activities are able to participate more inclusively.

I have the Reef Finder in my hands. Beautiful work!!!. Congratulations for this new achievement. Excellent for educational purposes and it will be very useful for any diver.

When I need to get my head around coral ID quickly I use the Coral Finder. It just works.

It is by far the best coral identification survey tool I have seen…
