Frequently Asked Question

What is the NOAA Diving Manual and where can I get it?

The NOAA Diving Manual is a comprehensive reference specifically designed for the diving professional. It was originally written for use by NOAA divers to assist them in conducting various operations and significant contributions to the manual are still provided by experienced NOAA personnel. The NOAA Diving Manual should not be confused with the NOAA Diving Standards and Safety Manuals which contain NOAA's diving regulations. 

The NOAA Diving Manual is published by Best Publishing Company and can be purchased through them or through many other commercial book retailers.
