The makers of this film clearly understood the message of Winged Migration and the penguin film that followed it. People like in depth films from the perspective of animals.
So, rather than make yet another boring, copycat penguin film, they followed the curious life of a pregnant sea turtle as it goes on a unique type of migration through the ocean, which includes a different perspective on some of the animal villains of the penguin films.
Visually, the film work is truly impressive and sometimes so vivid and colorful you wonder if you're looking at a cartoon instead of reality. The narration is also a welcome change from the authoritarian, voice of god trying to add more meaning than needed.
