This film takes us from the remote reefs of the Hawaiian archipelago to the world-famous beaches of Waikiki. The sharks here offer up extraordinary behaviour, some seen nowhere else on Earth.

Our journey begins in in deeper waters where humpback whales are on their annual migration from Alaska. Here, off Maui’s coast, tiger sharks attack humpback whale calves. Rarely do sharks attack prey bigger than themselves. But recently, something has changed in the whale/tiger shark dynamic and the new-born whales are now considered fair game. But the relationship between whales and sharks in Hawaii’s waters is not always confrontational. These two species can also come together to form extraordinary bonds seen nowhere else on Earth.

Join us as we take a look at the sharks that call this extraordinary place home. Utilising new underwater drones, aerial drones, and remote sensor cameras as well as new 4K lenses, ‘The Sharks of Hawaii’ casts a never-before-seen look at both an amazing place and amazing animals.
