Synopsis Edit

In order to continue her research on whales, Dianne Bates is assigned to ORCA. She arrives there to do the research with Dr Winston Seth. Her two sons, Jason and Brett, have to go, too.

Although younger brother Brett finds the underwater research station exciting, Jason is not happy about the change in scenery. Jason is given the job of tagging a whale, but fails to do so when he sees a girl in the ocean. His mother doesn't believe his story and feels he sabotages it on purpose.

Full Recap Edit

Dianne Bates and her sons Jason and Brett come to the underwater base ORCA for six months.

They meet Winston Seth which is Dianne's assistant. Sher is going to study whales. Brett finds the place cool, but Jason doesn't like it. They also meet commander Lucas.

At dinner Brett meets his new friends Zoe and Froggy. Dianne, Winston, Jason and Brett go out with the boat to put a transmitter on the whale.

Just as Jason is about to shoot the tag, a girl appears - fearing that he is trying to harm the whale - and he misses the shot. Annoyed and angry his mother Dianne grabs and shoots the transmitter herself, successfully tagging the whale.
