An immersive trail featuring CBeebies’ Octonauts is set to take families on a journey filled with the ocean’s most weird and wonderful activities at Blackpool SEA LIFE.

Families can join Captain Barnacles, Lieutenant Kwazii and Peso the Medic for the new deep sea adventure from June 12.

Young recruits and their families will begin their mission as soon as they arrive, acting as ‘captain’ for the day. Guests will scour the site to search for Captain Barnacles, who has gone missing after an undersea storm swept him away as he checked up on local coral.

The new, young captains will collect clues to locate Barnacles, all while learning about ocean dwelling creatures, including turtles, sharks, octopuses, rays and penguins.

Every captain needs a hat, and all explorers will receive one to make and wear (and then take home) whilst discovering the secrets of the seven seas.

On completing their mission, all recruits can claim a special certificate. What’s more, daily entertainment includes everything from Octonauts bingo and character drawing, to fancy dress mask making and even creature singalongs

Post-mission, all honorary Octonauts are encouraged to find out about SEA LIFE’s many conservation programmes and other creatures of the seas.

For those looking for some extra fun and learning during their visit, creature cards with facts and activities will be available via the SEA LIFE website.

Octonauts runs at SEA LIFE in Blackpool until July 11 , with prices starting at £9.95. For information and to pre-book tickets at your chosen SEA LIFE location, please visit https://www.visitsealife.com/
