For several thousand years, the island nation of Sri Lanka has been a hub for maritime commerce, resulting in many ships falling victim to maritime disasters and skirmishes at sea. Ghosts of the Deep is an extensive photo journal that recounts the stories of how over 40 of these vessels transformed into shipwrecks, and the narrative account of the author’s exhilarating experiences of exploring them in their current state as artificial reefs, which are now home to a multitude of marine life. The author, Dharshana Jayawardena, is a leading shipwreck explorer and underwater photographer in Sri Lanka. He is the Founder Editor of Dharshana has been SCUBA diving since 2003, logging over 1,200 dives in the oceans of the world. He is a certified Closed-Circuit-Rebreather Decompression Diver (TDI), Technical Trimix Diver (DSAT), Solo Diver (PSAI), and a Rescue Diver (PADI). Shipwrecks are his main area of expertise and he has been able to authenticate the origins of several mystery shipwrecks. It is noteworthy that many of Dharshana’s discoveries were made while diving solo, even at depths exceeding 200 feet. His explorations and achievements have been recognised, locally as well as internationally, in numerous publications and by the media. AVAILABLE IN MAY 2016.
