The Pirate’s Misadventure (Children’s Show)
The Pirate and his Mermaiden invite you to cast off your shoes and squeeze into its true-to-life 50ft (18m) inflatable Sperm Whale. 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.
The Mariner’s Museum (Animated Installation)
Inside The Whale, to the sounds of crashing waves, an ancient Sea Salt leads visitors around a living museum of deep sea wonders. Curiosities include mermaids’ purses; an arm wrestling octopus; a skeleton with xylophone ribs and bewildering flotsam and jetsam. The audience will be invited to touch and taste some of the exhibits.
The Whale hosts six 30 min storytelling workshops a day
