Synopsis:
1) The Japanese whaling fleet received 29 million dollars from the Japanese government to improve the security for the Japanese whaling operation.
2) The Shonan Maru #2 (the security vessel #2) had an overhaul and had "GOVERNMENT OF JAPAN" painted on its side, thus allowing the ship to legally enter Australian waters tailing the Steve Irwin ship
3) The Sea Sheppard fleet suffered through a lot of challenges this season and didn't actually catch up to the spent a considerable amount of time and had numerous encounters with the harpoon ships.
4) The whaling fleet upgraded their defenses to guard against prop fouling attempts, which was eventually overcome with a knife, and used violent means against the Sea Sheppard crew by throwing tethered grappling hooks at them and hitting when with long wooden sticks. A couple of crew members were injured by the defensive tactics of the Japanese Whalers. One of the radar systems was destroyed by a water cannon and a crew member was tossed off the jet ski from the water cannon.
5) The Gojira was renamed the Bridgette Bardo and ended up suffering catastrophic damage from a rogue wave to one of its pontoons. This changed the Sea Sheppard's priorities to a rescue mission for the Brigette Bardo's crew members along with the drama of one of the harpoon vessels might interfere with the rescue operation and cause more risk to their lives. The Shonon Maru (#3 or #1) had to be told 2 or 3 times to back off because they were engaging in a rescue operation.
6) The Steve Irwin vessel was continuously being followed by the Shonon Maru #2 throughout the campaign minus the brief respite given by successful prop fouling attempts.

As with the rest of the series, the storyline is not predictable; twists and unexpected turns hold the viewer's attention. This is tamper-free realism. The crews of the three vessels under Watson's command become family to each other, and, frankly, to the loyal viewer. Sail on, Paul Watson, and save those defenseless, majestic whales!

Japanese whale killers do not understand that whales and dolphins are some of the most intelligent creatures on this planet. It is only our lack of understanding that makes us look at them as "animals". Far from it, they actually show more wisdom than humans even (certainly more than Japanese whale killers).

Japan has a tricky relationship with the ocean; perhaps if they stopped treating it as their hunting ground, where most fascinating beings are slaughtered, the gods of oceans may smile on them and stop the next tsunami...

Whale Wars is not fictional. The series details the harrowing adventures experienced by people who voluntarily risk their lives to save whales from illegal slaughter by the Japanese fishing industry.Very highly recommended!

I don't understand how they can become frightened from a breach in their hull when they should have expected and prepaired for the worst especially in a boat with a hull integrity such as theirs. I would never have put a fiberglass boat in hurricane swells. I don't understand how they cannot truly know Paul Watson is serious about "Give your life for a whale."

For those who want to hate that is fine your entitled to your opinion but seriously this is a good show. With damaged oceans and extinction this will affect the human race directly. Animals are not resources they are beings like you and me. Humans obviously relate to humans but that does not mean we should not care for fellow beings. Animals are not expendable commodities. Seriously this is just ignorance and for people to keep feeling good about what they are doing. The show rocks! I will keep watching the seasons.
