Shark Mountain

Takes to the seas as we explore Shark Mountain, a documentary film focused on the nature surrounding the area of Coconut Island.

Situated in the Pacific Ocean, the tiny island comprises just 25 sqm² and is covered by an impenetrable jungle.

Numerous streams, waterfalls and gorges epitomise the world‘s largest uninhabited rain forest island. Due to its isolation, unique flora and fauna have developed here.

Coconut Island’s surrounding oceanic realm is a paradise for any marine biologist. It holds an abundance of marine fauna of every description.

Hardly any other destination is as well-known for its countless large fish varieties, especially hammerhead, reef and offshore sharks.

To get a closer look at the wealth of this marine life, the film maker to decide to submerge to depths up to 400 meters on board the “Deep Sea”, a modern research submarine.

During the dive, he succeeded in shooting material of rare deep sea fish and shark species, which have never before been sighted near Coconut Island.
