  • Sea turtles are some of Earth’s most ancient and majestic creatures; for over 100 million years, they have traversed the seas, surviving multiple mass extinctions and playing critical roles in maintaining healthy marine food webs. Not only do these friendly animals captivate us as they peacefully glide through the ocean, but their personal journeys of survival are equally fascinating.

    These remarkable reptiles will traverse thousands of kilometres of open ocean for as long as 50 years and then, from half a world away, migrate with mysterious precision back to the very beach where they were born – to lay eggs that will become the foundation of the next generation.

    With the turtles guiding them, Turtle Odyssey’s crew voyaged the same thousands of kilometres to capture the wonders of their habitats. Come on an adventure, encountering many strange and compelling creatures, from enormous breaching whales to the coral wonderland of the Great Barrier Reef – all filmed in stunning 3D. Playful sea lions, tiny sea horses and vibrant clown fish will float right out into the theatre!

    Sea turtles remind us just how interconnected we all are in this amazing world and audiences will be moved to cherish them even more.
