Appearing live across our parks throughout 2018, it’s Sammy Seahorse and all the Squad taking you on some amazing new adventures. Make sure to check at Reception on arrival to find out what dates and times you can meet the Squad!
Many years ago while playing a game of Squiditch under the sea at Coral Cove, Sammy Seahorse found a magical treasure chest. He and his friends Larry and Tommy brought the chest ashore near Naish farm in order to return it to its rightful owner Captain Hoburne. The chest holds the magic of the 'Jolly Holiday' where points can be won in all our games, competitions and activities held throughout the week on a Hoburne Holiday and to this day Sammy, Larry and Tommy are always on hand to keep it safe from Captain Smuggles ..... with the help of the boys and girls of course.
If there’s anything you can be certain of, it’s a varied and ever-changing daily program of things to do that will keep everyone entertained, from interactive Sammy Squad activities to poolside quizzes; from crazy golf tournaments to urban orienteering. And even if the Great British weather doesn’t always play ball, there are plenty of family guest favourites to enjoy.
Are you a Turtle or a Lobster? Will Captain Smuggles steal the Hoburne Treasure Chest? Who will be the winning team? There’s prizes and points galore to be had during this fast paced showtime. Find out which team you are on and then join our amazing Hoburne Hosts as they help you take part in exciting evening challenges, team games and Sammy shows.
The bright, clever and funny leader of the squad. He loves to dance and to outwit Captain Smuggles.
Sammy's best friend and joker of the pack. He likes rhythm and calypso and loves sport - especially Squiditch - which is a shame because he's not very good at it!... In fact Larry is not great at a lot of things on account of him being very clumsy but no one can doubt his dedication to the task at hand, his physical strength and his loyalty to his friends...albeit he does grumble a bit!
A gentle soul who is often taken in by Captain Smuggles. He loves stories of adventure and magic and takes everything literally and at face value. A very innocent turtle who is a little forgetful and easy to fool.
A rotten pirate who has been sailing the seven seas trying to get his hands on the Hoburne treasure chest for years. He is a schemer and quite creative when coming up with his plans to get his hands on the chest which, he often discusses with his one legged pigeon 'Peg'. Get ready to boo and hiss when you see him.
“All of us thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay! We will certainly be returning!”
