Mako: Island of Secrets (international title Mako Mermaids: An H2O Adventure) is the spin-off series of H2O: Just Add Water.

Zac is played by Chai Romruen, Erik is played by Alex Cubis and the mermaids are played by Isabel Durant, Allie Bertram, Lucy Fry, Ivy Latimer and Amy Ruffle.

Mako Mermaids made its debut in the US, Canada, UK and Ireland on July 26, 2013 on Netflix. Australian television station TV Ten also debuted Mako Mermaids on the same date. In the upcoming season 2, due to air in January 2015, the producer has said that the mermaids from H2O: Just Add Water may appear as mermaids claiming that they still have their old tails from the show. 

Overview

Season One Three mermaids, Sirena, Nixie, and Lyla, are assigned with the task of protecting their magical Mako Island from trespassers, only to be thwarted by the arrival of a 16 year old land-dweller Zac – who forms a special connection with the island and is granted a blue fish-like tail and amazing marine powers. Threatened by his existence, the mermaid pod are forced to move away, abandoning Sirena, Nixie, and Lyla, who in a bid for survival, must get legs, venture onto land, and take back Zac's powers or risk being outcasts forever.

Season Two

Two new mermaids arrive (Allie Bertram and Isabel Durant play new mermaids Mimmi and Ondina, respectively) and are afraid that Zac is a threat to mermaid pods everywhere, but what they don't realize is that there is another merman in addition to Zac in town (Alex Cubis plays Erik) bent on seizing Mako Island for himself.

The mystery of Mako deepens, when Zac discovers the ruins of an ancient merman temple. At first only he can see it. But once awoken, the ruins become visible to all during a full moon.

The trailer reveals that Sirena has returned to the pod along with Nixie and Lyla to protest that Zac is not a threat but their friend. The mermaid council does not believe Sirena's explanation. Ondina and Mimmi decide they must run away from the pod with Sirena to try to destroy Zac's powers, not with just the full moon but a potion. In order to do this, they manage to blast Cam away and kidnap Zac and take him to the moon pool. Evie decides she wants to go after them as Sirena doesn't even know what they were going to do to him. In the middle of Ondina and Mimmi's spell, Evie pops up in the moon pool just as the full moon passes over. The series begins: Evie is now a mermaid.

In other areas of our story, Zac meets Erik and has a mixed rivalry/alliance with him. Cam wins Erik's trust after hiding the secret in 'Stormy Seas'. Erik secretly pursues the other merpeople to find out their situation and in the midst of this, falls for Ondina.

David and Carly become dangerously close to the secret, with many indicents where they catch glimpses of the mermaids or get caught up in Zac, Ondina, Mimmi, Evie and Sirena's adventures with exploration of mermaid magic.

  • Sirena (Amy Ruffle): Sirena and her mermaid friends, Lyla and Nixie are guardian mermaids of Mako Island, One full moon, a local land boy Zac falls into the Moon Pool. They are banished from the island and have to go on land to go and get back Zac's merman powers. Sirena provides the moonring in which gets the girls legs. She is the mediator and peacekeeper between Lyla and Nixie. She's a really beautiful soul and a bit naive, but that can work to her disadvantage. Sirena has a strong connection to her sister Aquata, who gave her her moonring. She has a crush on David! Sirena and David hold hands, tell each other how they feel about each other, and kiss for the first time in Episode 15 "Sirena's Secret". They are also seen kissing in Episode 26, "Decision Time". In Season 2, Sirena has returned to her pod, but is forced to return to Mako when Mimmi and Ondina go against the council's will to try and remove Zac's powers.
  • Zac Blakely (Chai Romruen): Zac is 16 years old and is the main character of Mako Mermaids. He goes camping on Mako Island, than falls into the Moon Pool which causes him to become a merman. Zac is quite sporty and grew up surfing, and getting a tail makes him super-strong. Zac's powers include the ability to move objects with the mind, and the ability to control water with the mind, as well as expanding it and molding it into a variety of shapes.
  • Cam (Dominic Deutscher): Cam is Zac's best friend, and appears to be a lifeguard. He knows about Zac's secret, and knows that Nixie, Sirena, and Lyla are mermaids. He has always been Zac's equal, but things change when Zac becomes a merman. Towards the end of the season, after Zac locked the Trident away again, Cam convinced Nixie to help him reopen the Trident chamber and pull it out yet again. In episode 26, "Decision Time", it is revealed that Cam's real purpose and intent all along was to steal the Trident and gain a merman tail for himself so that he could rule over Mako Island. Although this secret plot will change the nature of Zac and Cam's relationship as best mates, in season 2, it looks like Zac and Cam have worked things out. 
  • Evie McLaren (Gemma Forsyth): Evie is Zac's girlfriend, and feels Zac is hiding something when he frequently pulls away, so she tries to find out whatever he is hiding. She initially breaks up with Zac because he won't reveal what is going on with him and because she thinks Zac is cheating on her with Lyla, due to their increased closeness in friendship and confidences. But in Episode 14 "Battlelines", they have apparently worked through their issues and are a couple once again. Evie finds out Zac is a merman in Episode 25 "Betrayed". They have apparently been dating for 8 months. Evie evidently gains a mermaid tail in Season 2 because she pops up in the moon pool during a full moon.
  • Rita Santos (Kerith Atkinson): Rita is the school principal, and also happens to be a mermaid. She has long given up life of the ocean, due to her romantic relationship with her late fiance, but when three young mermaids appear in her life, she begins to find companionship again with the three.

Trivia

  • This is the second series Lucy Fry has main role that is created by Jonathan M. Shiff. The first was Lightning Point (Alien Surf Girls in U.S.).
  • While it is suggested by some that the show takes place after the events of H20, it is possible that Mako Mermaids takes place before the events in H20 because of the moon pool isn't destroyed. Another theory to support this is that the mermaids all inhabited Mako Island but with the pod leaving, it opened up the chances for more humans to make it to Mako, i.e. for Emma, Cleo and Rikki.
  • Lucy Fry made a cameo in the last episode of H2O: Just Add Water. Her name was announced at the graduation ceremony and she was seen in the crowd.
  • It is still unknown how natural mermaids got into Mako Island.
  • The Moon Pool in this series is completely different than the one in H2O.
  • The second season has been confirmed for January 2015.
  • In Australia, the series is known as Mako: Island of Secrets instead of Mako Mermaids.
