Through a rare storm at sea, they find themselves sailing on the Santa Maria with Christopher Columbus, his son, Fernando, and the parrot, Exploradora. As a powder monkey and lookout on the ship, the duo survives perilous encounters with sharks, cannibals, and the crusty and sometimes cruel captain as they seek a way home. They learn that life is a continual and often exciting exploration, especially when you have a friend by your side.
