stunning numbers of marine birds and wildlife. The adventurer Norberto Serpa teams up
with marine biologist Monica A. Silva to tag and research bypassing finwhales which reach
up to 25m in length. A daring adventure that usually bears little success. While repeated
efforts are made to approach the fast diving finwhales in the rough open sea, they come
across a “bait-ball” where hundreds of dolphins work in sync with thousands of birds to
hunt down a large shoal of sardines. Just as the water starts cooking in a feeding frenzy
