An inveterate adventurer and explorer, William Travis abandoned his flying career for the sun-lit seas of the Indian Ocean- to dive for saleable shell off the coast of the remote Seychelles. There he found a world apart, one which tourists were yet to discover; where extraordinarily beautiful underwater coral dazzled the eye; and where killer sharks appeared from unfathomable depths to threaten the lives of the author and his men. Taking on a local and eccentric crew, Travis went on to purchase the decrepit cutter, Golden Bells, and fished for shark. At sea for weeks on end, he sailed by instinct, survived by insight.
Beyond the Reefs incorporates two of Travis's classical adventures - Shark for Sale and Beyond the Reefs- and presents a vivid and fascinating portrait of a world now lost forever.
