How is the Water is a story of our ocean told intimately through a dolphin’s eyes.

It begins with a pod, a family of dolphins who teach you how to hunt and explore in your underwater home. Yet, when your home begins to change as a strange threat begins to invade, you must journey to find its source.

How is the Water is an adventure that will take you across a changing ocean, bringing you face-to-face with animals and wonders in danger of disappearing. How far will you go for your family and home?

As a Thank you, we would love to share with you the secret of becoming a dolphin.

And if you already signed up, then let us at least share with you this great quote of David Foster Wallace!

 

 

“The point of the fish story is merely that the most obvious, important realities are often the ones that are hardest to see and talk about…

 

The fact is that in the day to day trenches of adult existence, banal platitudes can have a life or death importance.”

 

- David Foster Wallace
