Those intrepid guardians of marine life, the Octonauts, are bringing their mission to Blackpool for the summer holidays.

The crew of the Octopod enthrall legions of young fans with their missions to save sea creatures in trouble.

Now the stars of BBC TV children’s channel Cbeebies are heading to the Sea Life Centre later this month.

Youngsters can meet their underwater heroes at the attraction, on the Golden Mile, from Saturday July 20 through until September 2.

Fans will have the chance to join Lieutenant Kwazii Cat and Medic Peso Penguin in their discovery of some real live sea creatures and enjoy a host of Octonautical activities, including a quiz trail, activity sheets, stickers, photo opportunities and much more.

The Octonauts follows a team of animated adventure heroes who dive into action whenever there is trouble under the sea. In a fleet of aquatic vehicles, they rescue amazing sea creatures, explore incredible new underwater worlds, and often save the day before returning safely to their home base, the Octopod.

Based on the original books by Meomi, Octonauts is animated by Brown Bag Films and continues to go from strength to strength as a unique and exciting global pre-school brand.

The educational value of the show is that the Octonauts helps children to learn more about the world around them and develop an understanding of team-work and community by watching the characters help one another.

Lieutenant Kwazii is a daredevil orange cat with a mysterious pirate past. Sporting his eye patch and wielding his spyglass, he’s an explorer at heart. As a pirate, he was motivated more by his love of adventure than his love of treasure.

Peso is the medic of the Octonauts. He’s the youngest member of the crew and the most likely to take Kwazii’s tall tales seriously. He’s not too fond of scary situations, but if someone is hurt or in trouble he can be the bravest Octonaut of all.
