The adventure vacation catalog.

The adventure Vacation Catalog (Simon & Schuster, 1984; $14.95) is an inch-thick paperback with dates, costs, and itineraries for more than 600 outings worldwide, plus a listing of around 400 tour operators. It's organized by interest area, from archeology to yacht charter.

Section introductions are helpful; for example, the one on scuba/snorkeling gives a 10-point checklist on how to choose a diving tour operator.

A sampling: Eight-day search fo gold nuggets, Spanish pieces-of-eight, and pre-Columbian artifacts on Costa Rica's Sierpe River, $995. A 2-1/2-day canoe trip on the Colorado River, through canyonlands, reedy marshes, and the still backbays of Havasu National Wildlife Refuge, $169.

To order, send $16.45 to Simon & Schuster Mail Order, 1230 Ave. of the Americas, New York 10020.
