Meanwhile, a mysterious barrel washes ashore and falls into the hands of the pirates. When their leader, Captain Hook, finds out what,Äôs in the barrel, he hatches an evil plan. But worst of all is the change in the mermaids. These once-peaceful friends of the natives have turned violent, using their needle-sharp teeth to attack anybody who goes into the water.

As the warriors prepare to attack, the Lost Boys and the chief,Äôs daughters, Shining Pearl and Little Scallop, set off on a secret mission to try to make peace with the mermaids. Instead, they,Äôre captured by the mermaids, and while in captivity they discover the cause of the problem,Äîthe Blood Tide, which is poisoning the lagoon and will eventually kill the mermaids. With time running out, they must try to stop the tide and save the mermaids as well as themselves.
