A deep-sea adventure, Octonauts: Shark Mission, is being launched at Great Yarmouth Sea Life from Saturday.

Children can 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.

They can 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.

Youngsters can 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.

They can get up close to a family of resident sharks from Bull Huss sharks to Blacktip reef sharks before meeting some of their favourite characters from the show, including an exclusive meet and greet with Shellington.

Octonauts: Shark Mission runs until May 13

It is included in the usual admission price, pre-book ticket online at
