Discover the Octonauts Characters

Captain Barnacles

From their undersea "Octopod" base, the Octonauts are a team of eight dynamic undersea explorers. Captain Barnacles is a brave polar bear extraordinaire and the leader of the Octonauts crew. Captain Barnacles loves to explore and he's always the first to rush in and help whenever there's a problem. Besides adventuring, Barnacles enjoys playing his accordion and writing in his captain's log.

Kwazii Kitten

From their undersea "Octopod" base, the Octonauts are a team of eight dynamic undersea explorers. Kwazii is a daredevil orange kitten with a mysterious pirate past and is complete with a pirate eye patch! He loves excitement and travelling to exotic places. His favourite hobbies include long baths, racing the Gup-B, and general swashbuckling.

Peso Penguin

From their undersea "Octopod" base, the Octonauts are a team of eight dynamic undersea explorers. Peso is the medic for the team. He's an expert at bandaging and always carries his medical kit with him in case of emergencies. He's not too fond of scary things, but if a creature is hurt or in danger, he can be the bravest Octonaut of all!

Play your part helping the crew on brand new underwater missions!

Explore a mysterious cave with Captain Barnacles and sound the Octo-Alert to light-up the amazing creatures living inside. Join Kwazii on a thrilling chase to reclaim his long-lost treasure and search the shipwreck for yourself to find the real creatures hiding inside. Help Peso clean-up the coral reef and rescue the creatures in a fun game, then step on-board the Gup-E for an unforgettable photo opportunity.
