Kaluoka'hina- The Enchanted Reef

Kaluoka

Show Description

Kaluoka’hina, undiscovered by mankind and hidden in the vastness of our planet’s oceans, possesses magic that protects it against humans finding it...until the volcano erupts, and the spell is broken. Now it’s up to the young sawfish, Jake, to restore the magic of Kaluoka’hina. Their only lead: the ancient legend that tells of touching the moon.
