Description: Described by legendary underwater explorer Jacques Cousteau as, “the most beautiful island in the world”, its tropical waters are home to a rich marine ecosystem – making it a mecca for schools of hungry sharks. In this immersive VR experience, we join a team of researchers and scientists as they dive into this underwater paradise at feeding time.

Review: If you suffer from Selachophobia (the fear of sharks) this is not the app for you because this is a 360 video documentary about the shark-infested waters of Cocos Island. What makes this island so special is that it’s surrounded by deep waters with counter-currents which makes it perfect for hammerhead sharks, rays, dolphins and other large marine species. These incredible animals are what brings the divers to this island and it seems one of them got a 360 video recorder for Christmas and decided to try it out.

Using state-of-the-art 360 camera technology they film with amazing wildlife found within this World Heritage Site and you will get to see it all from the comfort of your home. For travel and nature enthusiasts this will be a one experience you will not want to miss as you might never get to see it in real life.

While I can’t say I believe in this sort of content being on the PSVR I am willing to accept some people might like it. So is it worth downloading? Well, if you can ignore the low 360 video quality and the short length of this experience and you really, really, really love sharks then give it a go. Otherwise, it is best to save your money.
