Andrea Ferrari

When they are not diving Andrea and Antonella Ferrari live in the countryside south of Milan, Italy, in a beautifully restored farm going back to the eighteenth century, with their beloved English Bull Terrier. After having published two major photographic books on land wildlife in the early \'90s (Wild Edens and Venezuela - In the Kingdom of the Jaguar) they finally turned their attention to underwater marine biology and photography. Andrea and Antonella Ferrari have published several successful photographic books and hundreds of magazine articles on travel and marine life. Their books - published in Italy, France, Germany, Holland, Spain, Great Britain, Malaysia, the Unites States of America and Japan - include Malaysia Diving Guide (1997) Malaysia - An Underwater Paradise (1998), Layang Layang - The Island of Dreams Come True (1998), Top Nature and Dive Resorts of Borneo (2001), Reef Life (1999), Sharks (2000, with a foreword by Doug Perrine and contributions by Valerie Taylor, Marty Snyderman and Howard Hall), A Diver\'s Guide to Underwater Malaysia Macrolife (2003) and the spectacular coffee-table photographic volume Oceani Segreti (2004), which has been awarded the prestigious World Grand Prize at the Underwater Image Festival at Antibes. Their latest book is A Diver\'s Guide to Reef Life (2006). Andrea and Antonella are the associate editors of Singapore-based FiNS dive magazine, on which they author a regular column on underwater critters.

What I look for in a Dive Operator:
As divers of some experience, we basically and above all look for clean and comfortable accomodation, good food, reliable dive guides, safe boats, good visibility, spectacular landscapes, and, most important of all, great marine life. Of course, this is subjective: what is absolutely wonderful for us might be of absolutely no consequence to others. We are partial to macro life, but in all honesty, we like everything: small fish, big fish, macro critters, soft corals, you name it. The rarer, the stranger, the weirder - the better!
