When Ted takes George to his favorite vacation spot along the coast, he’s disappointed when things don’t go as planned.

With help along the way from a local fisherman, his niece, and an adorable baby seal, George leads the crew through a series of exciting adventures as they explore the ocean in their search for the sunken ship.
