The Pacific Ocean has been the focus of our fascination for as long as we have lived beside and on it. It covers one-third of Earth's surface, greater than all of the planet's landmasses combined. It contains half of the world's water, hides its deepest places, and is home to some of the most dazzling creatures known to science.  Big Pacific presents the Pacific Ocean and its inhabitants as you have never seen them before, blending a wealth of Ultra HD colour photographs with spellbinding storytelling to take you into a realm teeming with exotic life yet rarely witnessed up close, until now.
