Cast off your shoes and squeeze into The Whale. It has the true-to-life 50ft (18m) dimensions of an actual Sperm Whale but is inflatable. Enclosed in a lobster-net fence and guarded by a nosy Fish Wife, brave swashbucklers are lead into its belly, revealing a lavishly decorated seascape interior. Once inside they encounter a shipwrecked Pirate with a treasure tale to tell and a real live Mermaid with a haunting siren’s song and an intriguing secret.

Inside The Whale, to the sounds of crashing waves, an ancient Sea Salt leads visitors around a living museum of deep sea wonders.
