Oceans cover more than 70% of Earth and drive weather, regulate temperature, and support life on this planet. Our oceans are a vast system of diverse and complex ecosystems and natural resources; and the health of the world’s oceans is inextricably tied to the health of our planet.

And amazingly, up to 95% of the ocean realm remains an unexplored mystery.

Good ocean documentaries with as little trypophobia (holes/circles) as possible?

Hi, me and my partner were going to watch a film and had to turn it off within less than five minutes because it was essentially trypophobia the movie and I have it bad. I’d love something that doesn’t include crazy amounts of up-close coral and anemone shots. I understand if a scene or two is in the film — that’s the ocean after all — but if anyone can recommend some good enjoyable movies about the ocean without copious amounts of closeup shots of my worst nightmares I would love that. Maybe something that focuses on fish or whatnot instead of corals? TIA!!
