We’ll be in Monterey at the end of August with the who’s who of the ocean world to celebrate the sea and our global efforts to share its stories.” About AQUATEAM: Kids get to do more cool stuff in the ocean than they would ever be allowed to do on land, but they have to look out for themselves and each other. Inner space exploration is all about teamwork. Aquateam is a diverse group of regular kids, 5 girls and 3 boys, age 12-14. Together they explore shipwrecks, discover underwater enigmas, work with marine archaeologists and treasure hunters, repair coral reefs, and dive with sharks, turtles, rays, sea lions and dolphins while becoming expert divers and good friends. They search for lost treasure, discover underwater caves, experience night dives and ‘drift’ dives, investigate the infamous undersea ‘Road to Atlantis’, experience an underwater crime scene investigation and even work as marine mammal trainers. Aquateam has aired on Discovery Kids in Canada and is licensed to YTV. It’s been sold to international broadcasters in Sweden, Brunei, Thailand and Norway and continues to generate interest in other countries.
