Imagine coming face-to-face with a shark the size of a school bus! Join the Browns on their search to find and study with the largest shark in the world -- the whale shark! This exciting expedition takes the Browns to the Central American country of Belize. From their expedition base, in the coastal village of Placentia, Belize, they will voyage out to search for whale sharks during their annual feeding migration to Gladden Spit located along the second largest barrier coral reef in the world! During their search they will check on the health of the coral reef and look for changes that may have occured since their last dives on the barrier reef during their 2002 expedition, From the Jungle to the Sea. On breaks from their search for whale sharks join the Browns as they explore Belize jungle rivers, meet the people who live there and journey deep into the rainforest and meet the wild and wonderful rainforest animals.
