The game also allows players to befriend as well as train three pets to perform tricks from the boat. The game has a storyline as well as sets goals for players to accomplish.

The graphics as well as the music scores for the game go hand in hand and are capable enough to draw players into that virtual world. Features include encyclopedia-style descriptors which are revealed when players interact with underwater sea creatures.

To explore, players simply need to point the Wii Remote in the direction they want to go and hold the B button whereas to examine objects, players have to point at them and press the A button.
