OCEAN AND DIVING LINKS ..

 
The following links are listed in Dive Australia, with later additions; 
appreciation to Larry 'Harris' Taylor for many of these. No doubt many will have lapsed or are functionally out of date. The Internet is moving so fst that it is impossible now to keep up to date, and besides, the modern search engines give ready access to most queries and searches.
