​Sea turtles are some of the Earth's most ancient and majestic creatures. For over 100 million years, they have traversed the seas, surviving multiple mass extinctions and playing critical roles in maintaining healthy marine food webs. Not only do these friendly animals captivate us as they peacefully glide through the ocean, but their personal journeys of survival are equally fascinating. 

These remarkable reptiles will traverse thousands of kilometers of open ocean for as long as 50 years and then, from half a world away, migrate with mysterious precision back to the very beach where they were born. There they will lay eggs that are the foundation of the next generation.​

With the turtles guiding us, we voyage the same thousands of kilometers, capturing the wonders of their habitats. Encountering many kinds of strand and compelling creatures, from enormous breaching whales to the coral wonderland of the Great Barrier Reef, all in stunning 3D. Playful sea lions, tiny seahorses, and vibrant clown fish float right out into the theater while sea turtles remind us just how interconnected we all are in this amazing world.
