Five epic marine environments…each home to a neighbourhood of diverse marine animals living out their daily dramas alongside each other.

The second season ventures further afield to the Kermadec Islands,1000 kilometres north east of northland; the active volcano White Island; the Chatham Islands; Canterbury’s Banks Peninsula; and Fiordland. Each episode is structured around a coastal “neighbourhood” and features the charismatic and varied inhabitants as they interact in their unique locations. The behaviour of giant marine mammals , dolphins, penguins, sharks, numerous fish species and seabirds in such close proximity will connect New Zealanders to our oceans, like never before.
