They also offer information on getting there, visa requirements, and currency, and give contact information for key support facilities at each dive site, including dive centers, organizations, recompression chambers, hospitals, and conservation societies. There is also information on nearby activities and places of interest for rest days and non-divers. Most of this supplemental information is contained in margin boxes.
