Explore the Largest and Least-Explored Habitat on Earth!

From coastal shallows to deep and mysterious worlds, discover untold stories of the oceans’ most astonishing creatures. The journey into the blue begins at its surface as dolphins leap and slice effortlessly through the water’s surface. First stop: the coral reefs. Meet fascinating characters like the ingenious tusk fish that uses a tool to open its food. In the great forests of the sea, find a cunning octopus who shields herself in an armory of shells to hide from predators. Journey through the oceans, share in these extraordinary discoveries and uncover a spectacular world of life beneath the waves.

This film is currently only available for groups, however this film may become part of the Museum's public film library in the future.
