Sarah Ann Wormald is from Ilkley, West Yorkshire in the UK where she previously worked as a Solicitor. Sarah began diving in 1999 in the Red Sea in Egypt, and after having dived in numerous destinations around the world, she moved to Indonesia in 2007. Since her move to Asia, Sarah has become an instructor who has shared her passion with hundreds of students through teaching them how to explore the underwater world. When Sarah is not teaching, she spends her time traveling Indonesia diving and photographing. From the outset of this project, Sarah's aim was to promote operators who dive safely and who protect and care for the reefs around them. Sarah's interests in Indonesian reefs, marine life, adventure and exploration led her to begin working on this book in 2013. Sarah currently lives and works full time in Indonesia.
"If you're serious about diving in Southeast Asia, then this guide will give you a wealth of country-and region maps, as well as ample details on the underwater topography and marine life you can expect to see." -Indie Traveller "Useful essays on local liveaboards and marine life offer some excellent insights and 25 per cent of the book is dedicated to practicalities, with lists of contacts and need to know information about health, visas, emergencies, money, weather and what to bring - all useful stuff. Overall an excellent addition to our dive guide library, which could well become a classic. It's certainly got us planning our next visit to the region." -Dive Magazine "Diving in Southeast Asia provides a useful starting point for planning a trip. It provides maps spotting the locations of sites and brief tabulated summaries for quick reference. Every page is adorned with a colorful picture generally taken underwater. From marine life suitable for super-macro cameras to WWII wrecks draped in corals, from whale sharks to pigmy seahorses, it's all covered." -Undercurrent.org "Tuttle has specialized in books about Asia for nearly 70 years, and its experience shows here. The writing succeeds in getting a flavour of the underwater experience and character of individual sites and regions, rather than being a catalogue of facts and figures. And another welcome aspect is the collection of detailed maps marked with individual dive-sites, which I for one will find helpful in future." -DIVER Magazine
