*Now aNew York Times Best Seller* Over the course of two decades, John Hargrove worked with 20 different whales on two continents and at two of SeaWorld's U.S. facilities. For Hargrove, becoming an orca trainer fulfilled a childhood dream. However, as his experience with the whales deepened, Hargrove came to doubt that their needs could ever be met in captivity. When two fellow trainers were killed by orcas in marine parks, Hargrove decided that SeaWorld's wildly popular programs were both detrimental to the whales and ultimately unsafe for trainers. After leaving SeaWorld, Hargrove became one of the stars of the controversial documentary Blackfish. The outcry over the treatment of SeaWorld's orca has now expanded beyond the outlines sketched by the award-winning documentary, with Hargrove contributing his expertise to an advocacy movement that is convincing both federal and state governments to act. In Beneath the Surface, Hargrove paints a compelling portrait of these highly intelligent and social creatures, including his favorite whales Takara and her mother Kasatka, two of the most dominant orcas in SeaWorld. And he includes vibrant descriptions of the lives of orcas in the wild, contrasting their freedom in the ocean with their lives in SeaWorld. Hargrove's journey is one that humanity has just begun to take-toward the realization that the relationship between the human and animal worlds must be radically rethought.… (mehr)

Good book that reveals the horrors of orcas in captivity. SeaWorld is definitely the villi an here. ( )

This book was heartbreaking, and a powerful call for change. You can tell how much he loves those orcas, and the parts where he talks about them in the wild was fascinating. I would recommend it to anyone with an interest in marine biology, or animal rights. ( )

The author strikes the perfect balance among personal reminiscence, scientific fact, and job procedural. And what a job—swimming with these magnificent animals. However, the orca trainer-turned-activist shares the dark side of corporate management of animal performers, and makes a strong case against keeping any orcas in captivity. In particular, he gives a trainer’s view of several tragic orca attacks on humans: and runs afoul of SeaWorld as a result. ( )

Have you watched the movie Blackfish? Do you like orca whales? Have you been to SeaWorld? If your answer to any of these questions is yes then this is a book for you! As a lover of all marine animals, especially whales and dolphins, and having been to SeaWorld a few years back, I decided just based off the description of this book that I should give it a shot. This book is very eye-opening. Before reading this book, I had no idea about the harsh reality that SeaWorld marine life lives in. Author, John Hargrove, worked as a orca trainer for over decade before leaving due to injuries sustained while working with the whales. Going into his job, he believed that SeaWorld was doing a wonderful thing for conservation and teaching park visitors about the whales, but by the time he left his view points had changed drastically, and he eventually did interviews and appeared in the movie Blackfish. This book talks about the differences between wild and captive orcas, their living conditions, the whales' psychology and behaviors,l and eventually about what SeaWorld's actual goals behind the parks are. After reading this book, I do feel very differently about the marine parks and will be watching Blackfish as soon as I can!

To all the killer whales that I had the privilege of building relationships with and swimming with for so many years—you gave me everything. But most especially to Takara, who taught me so much and whom I loved the most.
