Each mission sees the experts living together on a dive boat and shows the disappointments and dangers they face as well as the successes of each trip. Diving in some of the planet's most challenging environments, beneath frozen Arctic ice-sheets, the Caribbean's mysterious black holes and the deep submerged caves of Mallorca they reveal new mysteries about our oceans.
