Under the Sea 3D

Closed Caption Audio Description Runtime: 45 minutes

Filmed entirely with IMAX® 3D cameras for a vivid, immersive viewing experience unlike any other, Under the Sea 3D will transport your students to some of the most exotic and isolated undersea locations on Earth, including Southern Australia and the Great Barrier Reef, as well as Papua New Guinea and Indonesia in the famed Coral Triangle, for face-to-face encounters with some of the most mysterious and stunning creatures of the sea.

Discover the habits and habitats of Great White Sharks, Flamboyant Cuttlefish, Leafy Sea Dragons, Giant Stingrays, Jellyfish, Green Sea Turtles, playful Australian Sea Lions, two metre long Garden Eels and a multitude of brilliantly colourful fish and sea life as they play out the daily dramas of their lives amidst vast coral formations that rise from the ocean floor.

Narrated by Jim Carrey, Under the Sea 3D offers an inspirational, educational, and entertaining way to explore the unique beauty of this rarely seen realm, and an awareness of the impact that global climate change is having on the oceanic wilderness.
