Comments: Gorgeous scenery greets the viewer here.
In Tasmania the waves are big and they do look amazing crashing into the coast.
South Africa is filled with seals. The close-ups let you see them so up close and personal it is like they are almost sitting in your lap. You can watch as Great White’s hunt the seals. It is not done how you think it would be. It does end in a surprise.
In the Arctic, a Sea Angel is shown it is a colorful delight to see. A Sea Butterfly wow a snail with wings that lives underwater. These are amazing creatures. There are also fish shooting insects out of trees.
Namibia has desert lions on the hunt. The nighttime filming does set up some beautiful videos of the animals in action. Catching prey in the dark is exciting.
The whales are large animals and they appear as majestic beasts. You will see so many things here that otherwise you would never know they even exist. You will witness the miracle of life too.
Canada’s West Coast has miles and miles of forests plus some beautiful waterways.
Have you ever wanted to be right in a snake’s face well here you can be. You will also see fish shooting insects out of trees. The fish get vicious in collecting their prize.
Mexico the flamingoes are out. There are a lot of them.
Rain Island has Green Turtles and with around 20,000 of them, there are lots to be seen. These turtles face many dangers. You will feel sorry for these majestic animals and the hardships they face.
Coasts are needed for life to go on for some species.
David Attenborough does a wonderful job as narrator. He delivers a smooth-flowing narrative that keeps you interested at all times and he adds so much to the visuals you see.

Comments: The opening scenes are breathtaking, the seas of the tropics are full of colors. The life below is unlike anything you see above. Some creatures are so weird-looking. The Frog Fish is one of them and it has its fishing rod.
Off the coast of North America, the underwater planet life makes you want to dive in and the filming here makes it so you feel like you can as it brings you right up close and personal. A Giant Sea Bass is an underwater monster. This thing does look mean. Other monsters lurk below too.
Flying Fish do look like they can fly short distances. Their fins look like wings once they leave the water. They move so gracefully. The Blue Shark are sleek streamlined creatures and they have a sinister look to them.
The Sea of Cortez Mobula Rays are shown jumping out of the water. It is almost like you are there watching them in person. Orcas will hunt Rays. They herd them like cattle well almost.
Deep down there are many creatures that glow in the darkness. Translucent makes them visible. Two miles down on the ocean floor animals do live. The Pearl Octopus is purple and you could watch the movies for hours. These Octopus make for caring mothers.
South American Sea Lions adapt to men being in their environment. Is this good or bad? Well from the way things end up for some Sea Lions at least it is very bad.
Accidents cause the deaths of millions of animals in the oceans. Humans need to do better.
David Attenborough’s narration is a pleasure to listen to, he has a way of speaking that makes you stop and just listen.
