NOTICE : Marine GeoGarage mobile apps & IOS4

We regret to inform you that our Marine GeoGarage mobile apps, currently available on iTunes (v.1.0.0), are NOT compatible with the latest Apple iOS 4.0 due to an unexpected outcome of the Apple’s iOS 4.0 implementation.

Feature : trying to zoom the user gets a layering affect between the area he is trying to zoom to, the page just doesn't want to refresh so not rendering the charts properly.

If you have already updated your iPhone to iOS 4.0, do not buy our App (v.1.0.0) for the moment.

We already provided an iOS 4.0 compatible App (v.1.0.1) still in "Waiting For Review" state for Apple so we hope to be soon on the AppStore with new 1.0.1 version.

Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Arctic 'unicorns'

In a unique aerial sequence, the migration of narwhal with their distinctive unicorn-like tusks is filmed for the first time.

The whales' journey is risky as they travel along giant cracks in the ice.
If the ice were to close above them, they would drown.

Underwater Armageddon

A mighty army of dolphins, sharks, whales, seals and gannets hunt down the billions of sardines along South Africa's east coast each winter.

This is the sardine run: an underwater
Armageddon, the greatest gathering of predators anywhere on the planet, and the most spectacular event in the world's oceans.

Bait ball feast

In late summer the plankton bloom is at its height.

Vast shoals of herring gather to feed on it, diving birds round the fish up into a bait ball and then a humpback whale roars in to scoop up the entire ball of herring in one huge mouthful.
