Follow the high-adrenaline adventures of a team of divers as they explore and film the depths of the Amazon river system – home to many of the strangest and fiercest creatures in the world. Led by celebrated wildlife photographers Mike deGruy and Kate Humble, the team goes in search of the biological treasures hidden beneath Amazon's silty surface. What they discover – electric eels, anacondas, wood-eating fish, freshwater dolphins and more – are unlike anything you'd find at the local aquarium. But the surrounding jungle holds secrets, as well. From frightening, 140-lb. semi-aquatic rodents to the frolicsome giant otter, the labyrinthine tributaries and offshoots of the Amazon yield encounters as spectacular as the river itself.

Episode summary:

Mike de Gruy and Kate Humble lead an international team of scientists and divers as they search for species new to science in the Amazon River. It is the climax of the diving expedition as the team explores a 90-metre chasm at the very bottom of the Amazon River. Scientists have no idea what lurks within. The team also explores overgrown jungle streams in search of giant caiman and electric eels - a fish that can stun you with a 600-volt shock. As the expedition draws to a close, the divers prepare to jump into the depths of the river to confront and film the extraordinary fish that lie in the abyss.
