Unlike Any Other Fish Guide on the Market

We wanted a simple and fun way to learn about fish identification and strange fish behavior but didn't want to feel like we were reading a textbook. So we designed Underwater Spotter Ocean Life Guides to be beautiful, easy to use, and jam-packed full of fun fishy facts and behavioral insights for divers and snorkelers to learn the ocean animals they see underwater.


Underwater Spotter challenges divers to find all 50 fish in the guide. By only including the top 50 ocean animals from a region (instead of hundreds), divers can start learning quickly to build their foundational identification knowledge.


Underwater Spotter Guides only include the most fascinating fish facts. We leave out the scientific names and technical language to completely focus on what divers find most interesting – the beautiful and strange lives of fish.


Underwater Spotter’s Ocean Life Guides make fish identification easy by pointing out 3 obvious fish family characteristics for quick recognition and by comparing 3 simple distinctions between commonly confused fish.
