A breathtaking journey on one of the world’s greatest whale migration routes as a team of experts attempts to unlock the secrets behind one of the greatest environmental comebacks ever – the humpback whale.

An extraordinary journey from the top of Western Australia to Antarctica. If they can discover why the humpbacks are so successful on this super highway, it may help in the fight to save another mighty mammal, the largest animal ever to have lived – the endangered blue whale.

About Odyssea

Odyssea is Prospero Productions’ specialist design submersible.

It enables a pilot and one passenger to descend below the ocean’s surface to the maximum depth of 200 metres. It has a length of five metres, a height of two and a half metres, and a weight of 3.2 tonnes. Odyssea offers a unique opportunity to view from a 250-degree perspective and capture the marine world with its 200-degree, 4k cameras as rarely seen before.

The thick, acrylic domed cabin creates a safe, 1 atmosphere environment and the cabin opens as a clamshell and allows for easy entry and exit for the occupants.

Odyssea has a maximum mission dive time of 8 hours and a life support system of up to 72 hours.
