S01:E01 - Realm of the Killer Whale
Peering into the secret world of killer whales in the Pacific northwest, a diver and filmmaker glimpses not only the rich surroundings in which they choose to live, but a side of these powerful predators few see their efforts to maintain a close family life and the moments when they appear to be looking for nothing more than sheer fun!
S01:E02 - Sperm Whale Oasis
In the mid-Atlantic, we go where few have been before: in the midst of a group sperm whales perhaps the most elusive of the great whales. Near the islands where these giants congregate, where humans once hunted them, this is an unprecedented portrait of perhaps the worlds greatest predators at close range.
S01:E03 - Creatures of the Coral
We follow two great spectacles of the ocean: a mass spawning off Australia that draws a menagerie of predators, and on the Pacific island of Yap, a group of giant manta rays.
S01:E04 - Gathering of Giants
One mans fascination with whales leads him into two hidden worlds: a remote coastline marked by violence, where one of natures most dramatic hunts unfolds in an instant of fierce surprise, and by contrast, a bank far offshore where humpback whales gather to breed and raise their young the reef of a thousand whales.
S01:E05 - Oases of the Sea
Camera in hand, a lone diver jounreys to two of the ocean's richest places...a Pacific archipelago long hidden from humanity, harboring creatures found nowhere else and an undersea jungle, roamed by exotic animals and filled with magical encounters.
