Season 4 episodes (10)

1 Battle Cry
The Sea Shepherds depart on campaign with a new vessel in their fleet, The Gojira. Early on, they find two of the harpoon ships in the whaling fleet before they've killed a single whale. They are now set up for their most successful campaign ever.
2 No Escape
After engaging the harpoon ships using the small boat teams, Paul makes the call to abandon the harpoon ships and go in search of the factory vessel. After a few hours of sailing, the tables have turned - two harpoon ships begin tailing Sea Shepherd.
3 Ghosts in the Machine
Tailed by a harpoon ship, the Steve Irwin enlists the help of the Gojira in an attempt to break free. Meanwhile, the Bob Barker crew spots a large blip on their radar, and believe it could be their ultimate target, the Nisshin Maru.
4 The Devil's Icebox
When damage happens to one of the small boats, and the Bob Barker 5 hours away, the crews realize they will have to spend a night at sea. But the crew is wet and freezing already and early symptoms of hypothermia begin to set in.
5 Tracking the Enemy
The Bob Barker desperately searches for their two small boat crews who were lost at sea in the aftermath of a daring mission. Meanwhile, the Gojira locates the whalers' refueling vessel and Locky plays a dangerous game of "chicken" with the massive ship.
6 Race to Save Lives
New Zealand's Navy contacts the Steve Irwin to respond to an emergency distress signal where five crew members from a Norwegian sailboat have gone missing. Now the Sea Shepherds must risk their lives in a dangerous mission to find the missing mariners.
7 Enemy in Their Grasp
As the first leg of their campaign comes to a close, the Sea Shepherds battle physical and mental exhaustion, especially pilot Chris Aultman. Thanks to an anonymous tip, the Steve Irwin finally locates the whalers' factory ship, the Nisshin Maru.
8 Battle Stations
The Bob Barker and Gojira launch an ambitious assault on the harpoon ship that has been following them and manage to completely disable the whaling vessel. Now free of its tail, the Barker continues searching for their ultimate target, the Nisshin Maru.
9 The Giant Enemy
After months of grueling searching, the Sea Shepherd's have found their ultimate target, the whaler's factory vessel. But the behemoth factory ship is intent on escaping from the carbon-fiber Gojira in the deadly Antarctic ice.
10 Delivering the Final Blow
Captain Paul Watson's crew of volunteers refuses to back down from the whalers, vowing to follow the fleet to the ends of the earth. Finally, after 30 years, Watson sees his life's work paid off with the ultimate victory.

This is by far my favorite show, not only is it educational, it is also educates you on what is happening in antartica with whale hunting by the government of Japan. I love whales and love the sea sheppard's message of protecting the whales and our oceans from being hunted into extinction. This is a great show to educate your children.

Thank you captain Paul Watson for taking the fight and stand up against these barberic murders from Japan who are hiding behind the name research. The killing of whales should not allowed. Shame on those who turn their back on these helpless creatures. Love whales.
