Celebrate the beauty and power of the ocean and explore our relationship with this complex and fragile environment. Shot in locations around the world and featuring spectacular footage from the islands of Palau, the film lets audiences swim among thousands of golden jellyfish and witness the bizarre spawning behavior of giant clams. Come face-to-face with humpback whales, life-size on the giant screen. Surf thundering waves in Hawaii and ride in a Coast Guard Rescue boat with cadets training to save lives at Cape Disappointment, home to some of the roughest surf in the world. And follow a Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) 3,000 feet down through the ocean depths to view strange creatures (one as long as a football field!) which live where sunlight never penetrates.
Narrated by Meryl Streep. Featuring songs and music by Sting.
Daily at 11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m.
