Kaluoka’hina: The Enchanted Reef
The vastness of our planet's oceans guards unimaginable secrets. One of its most precious is "Kaluoka'hina", the enchanted reef whose magic protects it against humans finding it. Kaluoka'hina's colorful inhabitants have thus always lived in peace... until the volcano erupts, and the spell is broken. Now it's up to the young sawfish Jake and his paranoid pal Shorty to restore the magic of Kaluoka'hina. Their only lead: the ancient legend that tells of touching the moon.
But how is a fish supposed to touch the moon? This is just one of the intriguing puzzles that Jake and Shorty have to solve on their most exciting adventure ever: the quest to save their beloved reef.

This breathtaking show takes audiences on an exploration of the delicate balance between ice, water and the existence of life that has been a topic of exploration and discovery in science for generations. In travels to the Arctic and Antarctic regions of our planet, we’ll examine the ecosystems that live and thrive there and see how their survival is connected with our own. Beyond Earth, we’ll see how the existence of ice shapes the landscape and the natural systems on other planets and moons in our solar system. The full-dome show is narrated by two-time Academy Award nominee for Best Actress, Emily Watson. 25 minutes.
