Produced by Schellenger, a two-time Emmy® award winning filmmaker/producer, this documentary provides spectacular footage of Harvey’s encounters with the legendary whale sharks of Isla Mujeres. The film offers viewers an “up close and personal” experience with these gentle yet massive animals, which can grow to up to 45 feet, as they mass in the hundreds for a few days for feeding off of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. The film also brings viewers up close with other marine life, including sailfish and mako sharks, which also prowl the waters off the Yucatán Peninsula. 25
