Storyline

A survey of the world's oceans, emphasizing the fact that it's a single interconnected ocean, and the dependence of all life on the ocean. Along the way we spend time with some surfers, with researchers cataloging and tracking whales, a Coast Guard rough weather rescue squad, a deep-ocean research team, and in the Palau Islands, notably at a saltwater lake with an unusual jellyfish variety.

Creator of the Universe has done excellent job by creating Air, Land,

and Water... and all the creatures inside them...

There is nothing like Water...

It is very peaceful and silent inside Water and In Air...

I doubt that those who swims in open waters can understand anything

about politics and manipulation on the Land...

How would a Human feel, if Sun makes noise and Water makes noise like

Human Vocal Cord every minute...

We know more about Outer Space than about our oceans today...

This movie is something to experience again and again...

Movies like these makes life very beautiful, desirable, and enjoyable...

Lucky are those who experience IMAX every month...

Rest are just laboring for nothing...wasting their precious time talking

nonsense....

Nature is truly beautiful... and we ( small object ) exist and walk on

Earth ( Large Object )...and yet we fail to notice that Earth will be

here.. but we will be gone momentarily....

Thanks and Regards.
