Believing there is some kind of mysterious creature living under the sea, Zane mounts an expedition to catch the “monster” - and he wants Lewis to help. At first, Lewis declines until the girls convince him to work with Zane – and run interference. Meanwhile, it’s Cleo’s 16th birthday and her dad has planned an embarrassingly childish surprise party, which you would expect a young girl turning 6 to have, not 16. She decides to escape to Mako Island where she is almost spotted as a mermaid by Zane. When she finally returns she finds Lewis has organized the best present of all – a more mature surprise party at the juice bar.
