The film is an invitation to discover a little known aspect of Kenya. The pristine and age-old coast of Swahili, rich in marine life, displays an incredible variety of natural wonders and offers the possibility of numerous adventures.
The story begins on Pate Island where Bajunis natives take us on a boat ride on their traditional dhows to learn their ancient fishing techniques. From there we join them on a sea cucumber diving expedition and then move on to NGomeni where we discover the art of crabbing in inlets surrounded by mangrove trees. We then experience the thrill of deep sea fishing for marlins, sailfish and sharks in the spectacular waters of Malindi, Watamu and Kilifi.
This film is both enthralling in its content and visually spectacular. A true voyage of discovery from the perspective of the traditional or modern fishermen who best know the Kenyan waters.
