The Tennysons camp by a lake that - wouldn't you know it? - has a monster in it (a true behemoth), but only Ben has seen it. Having recently dressed up as a sea monster to scare Gwen, he's now taken for a boy who's taking a joke too far. Only the creepy Captain Shaw believes there's a monster in the water, but he's not the sterling character needed to help Ben regain his good word; however, when the monster later makes a very public appearance, Ben's word is restored and he's off to join the captain for a monster hunt, much against Grandpa Max's instructions.

The false marine biologist leading the hunt for the Krakken is named Jonah Melville. Both names are associated with sea monsters. (Jonah was the character from the Bible who was swallowed by a whale. And Herman Melville wrote "Moby Dick", about a man's obsession with hunting a white whale.) See more
