Weymouth SEA LIFE will be recruiting young ocean explorers to take part in an all-new, deep-sea adventure this Easter as Octonauts: Shark Mission runs from Friday, March 30 until Sunday, April 15.
Join Captain Barnacles, Peso, Dashi, Shellington, Professor Inkling, Tweak, Kwazii and Tunip in a thrilling quest to uncover the secrets of the ocean’s most jaw-some predators.
Come face-to-fin with Weymouth SEA LIFE’s fascinating family of resident sharks - from guitar sharks to black-tip reef sharks – before meeting some of your favourite characters from the show, including an exclusive meet and greet with Shellington available only at SEA LIFE, and his Octonaut friends.
Help the Octonauts crew solve the mind-bending puzzles of the mystery tanks and find out which sharks can live to be 400 years old, which sharks can smell a single drop of blood in an Olympic size swimming pool and why some sharks have skin as rough as sandpaper.
Visit Professor Inkling’s colour lab, take a special dive of discovery with Dashi and follow instructions from Captain Barnacles to make a shark puppet.
Honorary Octonauts and their families can capture their special day in the Octonauts photo area for a treasured memento of their magical marine expedition, while all children will receive a personalised certificate signed by Captain Barnacles to take home, as well as a Shark Mission pop badge.
There’s also plenty on offer for older kids, couples and adults, exploring sunken cities, looming shipwrecks and mystical underwater caves brimming with weird but wonderful creatures, from octopuses and turtles to stingrays and starfish.
Octonauts: Shark Mission runs at Weymouth SEA LIFE from 30th March – 15th April and is included in the usual admission price, with tickets starting from £14.50 per person. Best ticket prices can be found online by pre-booking at: www.visitsealife.com/weymouth.
