  1. A truly beautiful and informative film by Prince Hussain whose stewardship of the natural habitat – the oceans, the sea animals – and our environment is much appreciated and valued. We need voices like his to inspire is to take greater care of our earth and all its living habitat for our future well-being and existence.


  2. It is genuinely wonderful video, showcasing the unexplored under-water life. Particularly, it is a treat to the eyes to watch dolphins.
    Congratulations to Prince Hussain and the team for such wonderful work.


  3. Mashallah What a serene underwater photography by our Noorani Family Member Prince Hussain. Watching the video puts the viewer in an ecstatic spiritual realm. Not only that but by his example , he would inspire many more people and especially our younger members of our Ismaili community to explore this field of Oceanography perhaps as a hobby or career .Thank you Prince Hussain for that!


  4. Subbahan Allah, the beauty of natural life in the sea that has been focused by the honorable Prince Hussain Aga Khan is a reflecting point for all of us, to see the nature with deep insight and strive to protect it.


  5. This is a beautiful video with all the information. We sincerely thank the Prince for the film.
