But the precious jewel is stolen from him by Marco, a smart, orphaned and homeless boy. Meanwhile, Pinky, the youngest pirate ever, enjoys relaxing days on land with her friend Veronica who, on the contrary, dreams of experiencing great adventures on unknown shores. The opportunity comes unexpectedly when Captain Saber, one of the greatest pirates of the Seven Seas, bursts into the lives of the kids to take them with him in search of the diamond. Alongside the famous pirate, the very nice twins Wally and Wimp and the loyal Lonfinger, lieutenant of Captain Sabertooth and his precious adviser. So, the cheerful crew will start a race full of twists where everyone will try to get their hands on the precious magic diamond.
