The Kidds have grown up diving down to shipwrecks and traveling the world as part of their family treasure hunting business. Tommy (the beefcake), Storm (the brains), Bick (thinks he's the brains but is really the storyteller), and Beck (thinks she's the brains but is really the artist) have helped their parents recover everything from swords to gold doubloons from the bottom of the ocean, and they wouldn't trade their life on the high seas for anything.
But after their mother is kidnapped and their father disappears in a dangerous storm, the kids are suddenly thrust into the most exciting treasure hunt of their lives. They'll have to work together to defeat dangerous pirates, keep their untrustworthy uncle at bay, and dodge the hot pursuit by an evil treasure hunting rival, all while following cryptic clues to unravel the mystery of what really happened to their parents--and find out if they're still alive.
