Dive Olly Dive! Ship Shape Sub (Giveaway)

I have to admit that I’ve never heard of Dive Olly Dive! before. However, I knew that my girls would enjoy watching anything having to do with the ocean.


Dive Olly Dive follows the adventures of Olly, a young submarine-in-training, and Beth, his best friend and fellow sub-in-training. Stationed at the Special Underwater Research Facility (S.U.R.F.) under the guidance of Diver Doug, the young subs explore their spectacular underwater world.

Joining Olly and Beth are Skid, Doug’s sleek transport vehicle; Brandt, a cantankerous hermit crab who imagines himself as a pirate; UMA, an eight-appendaged Underwater Maintenance Assistant; Ranger, a tiny cowboy seahorse who wrangles his herd of squid; Shankley, the Scottish sea crane who spins tales of the deep seas; Suzy, the awesome aerobatic seas plane; and Luseal, the fun-loving, athletic seal.


Ship Shape Sub included 5 underwater adventures that my girls loved: Haunted Ship Prank, Less is More, Navigation Consternation, Follow That Lobster, & Don’t Tell Beth.

We really enjoyed the animation and story lines. The characters are bright, colorful, and very entertaining. Our favorite character was Ranger the Cowboy Seahorse. He seemed to have a good head on his shoulder and always weighing right from wrong.

However, what we were impressed by the most are the positive messages that it delivers. This show teaches children about helpfulness, respect, cooperation, and honesty. It also helped Girlie Girl learn about listening to other’s point of views and to not judge people by the way they look.

Overall, Ship Shape Sub is great entertainment for the whole family! It helped my girls learn valuable life lessons while introducing them to the wonders of ocean life.
