Island of the Sharks Visit Cocos (QTVR)

Costa Rica's Cocos Island boasts more sharks per cubic yard of water than perhaps any other place on the planet, including whitetip reef sharks, 40-foot whale sharks, and hammerheads that school by the hundreds. On this latest NOVA/PBS Online Adventure, we joined Howard and Michele Hall, two of the world's leading underwater filmmakers, as they dove into this shark-infested paradise to shoot an IMAX large-format film, "Island of the Sharks."
