Great Ocean Adventures Book


Price 15.00


The filming of the television series Great Ocean Adventures was an extremely ambitious undertaking.
A crew of five with a shoestring budget set out on a complete circumnavigation of the globe, seeking out the iconic and mysterious giant animals of the world's oceans.
The team encountered killer whales, giant octopus, ferocious Humboldt squid, beluga whales, thresher sharks, ocean sunfish, humpback whales, and basking sharks.

During the course of their extraordinary journey they were perpetually tired, frequently frightened, occasionally ill, and often foul smelling. Nonetheless the resultant series offered a glimpse into a world far off the beaten track, and aired to tremendous reviews.

This book tells the behind-the-scenes story of the filming of Great Ocean Adventures, revealing the real experiences of a film crew on the road, the ups and downs of wildlife filming, and the cast of characters and places that act as a backdrop for a remarkable journey. Great Ocean Adventures is illustrated throughout by stunning images from the Scubazoo Agency cameramen in the team, and from other award winning photographers, several of whom accompanied the team at various stages of the journey.

The journey involved all the crew taking 37 flights around the world, conducting over a hundred dives each, and filming each one of the ten episodes completely in only five days. Conditions ranged from diving in water of 1 Celsuis in Newfoundland, to 30 Celsius in Palau.

Each encounter was special, however certain stood out even amongst the ocean giants featured in the series. The Humboldt squid in the darkness of the Sea of Cortez made a real impression on everyone in the team, as did the giant sun fish off Bali. Closer to home the basking sharks off Scotland gave a glimpse of a British giant, whilst the mantas off a deep ocean mount in the Pacific created a huge response from the viewing public.
