Dark Tide

Synopsis: Kate is a shark expert whose business has been failing since a shark attack killed a fellow diver under her command. Once dubbed "the shark whisperer," Kate is haunted by the memory of the attack and unable to get back into the water. With bills piling up and the bank about to foreclose on Kate's boat, Kate's ex-boyfriend Jeff presents her with a lucrative opportunity to lead a thrill-seeking millionaire businessman on a dangerous shark dive - outside the cage. Battling her self-doubts and fear, Kate accepts the proposal and sets a course for the world's deadliest feeding ground - Shark Alley.

That traditionally makes them

easy to catch.


However, luckily for them,

they're protected now

and not so easy to catch.


Listen. You hear that?

What does that sound like?

They don't sound like penguins.


Sounds like your sweet mother on the loo.

What did you say?

- I said I can hear them. Can you?

- What?


Those are the, uh, jackass penguins.

- Oh.

- Mom, she said "ass".

Do the sharks eat the penguins?

- It happens.

- Oh, yeah?

- They eat husbands?

- Very funny.

What you have here is

the world famous Cape fur seals.

This is the largest

seal colony in the Cape.

And if you look real closely,

you just might see some little pups.

We just had a gang of them

born here recently.

There's about 10,000

of these little guys...

born here in the Cape every year.

Sadly, most of them

will never see their first birthday.

There's loads!

That's pretty. Look at it.

Shall I get a picture?

- You know what to click?

- You got it.

Sharks eat seals, right?

Yep. They sure do.

That's their favorite meal.

So where are they?

Oh, they're out there. Trust me.

This is the largest feeding ground

for sharks in the world.

So even though we can't see them,

they're out there.

Hey, great tour, by the way, huh?

- There you go.

- Those seals are so cute, really.

- Pays the bills.

- Doesn't look like it.

But you still look hot.

Hey, Tommy.

She looks hot or what?

- Yeah.

- See?

- For her age.

- Great. You're fired.

So, you're still pissed at me?

Come on.

You miss me. I miss you.

No need to play it cool.

You seeing somebody?

You mean, uh, lately?

No, it's been about a year now.


How old is she? 19?

Oh, man, this is bad news.

Bad news.


There's a lot of water in the bilge.

You think it's the cutlass?
