The adventure is off to a rocky start when Louie rescues Sammi from nearly getting run over by a school of fish. Things take an exciting turn when they meet Jag the Jellyfish who generously lets them take turns jumping on his back. Just in time for lunch – the dynamic duo share scrumptious seaweed they found hidden in a mysterious box. To end their quest, they learn a valuable lesson from Elly the Eel who helps them discover that through their adventure, Sammi and Louie became true friends.
