The Current, featuring Olympic gold medal swimmer and Coloradan Missy Franklin, centers on adaptive water sports such as surfing, scuba diving, free-diving and ocean kayaking alongside whales and dolphins in exotic locations, including Bimini, Bahamas, Cozumel, Mexico and Kauai, Hawaii.
Each cast member shares inspirational stories of perseverance and an unwillingness to be held back by limitations.”
