Storyline

This stunning and dangerous limited series spotlights both the controversial Japanese whaling trade and the tactics that the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and its staff and volunteers use to cripple it. Aboard the Motor Yacht "Steve Irwin" the group seeks out the Japanese whaling fleet and then uses it's Delta Zodiac, helicopter, and other innovative techniques to enforce the law, including close-quarters ship-to-ship contact, to disable and/or sink the Japanese whaling ships in the fight to enforce international laws on the high seas where law enforcement is minimal or non-existent. The successful confrontations disrupt whale carcass processing and disperse the fleet of whaling vessels. Written by Robert G. Case

Great people doing an amazing job!
25 November 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Love this show, it highlights the completely unnecessary whaling that is still going on today. Yes they don't always get the best crew but what can you expect when all they can afford is volunteers. Paul and his regular crew are brilliant at what they do. The show is fairly well made and does its job of informing people what is still happening. The crew are very brave and thrown into a world they think they understand but soon learn just how difficult and dangerous it is.

Those people who have reviewed and said this is a comedy and rubbish and clearly clueless. The Sea Shephards do an amazing job and even if they cannot stop the Japanese Whaling Fleet they can certainly hinder how much of their quota they can actually catch, allowing the whales time to recover. Whaling is disgusting and so outdated now its about time it was made fully illegal and these whalers learnt that there is no need for it anymore today. Well done Sea Shephards for actually doing something! I only wish I was out there with you!
