Two characters, Fred and his wife Daphne, are admiring their new home in the Great Barrier Reef and their clutch of babies that are due to hatch in a few days. Suddenly, a ghost with razor sharp blade named Phantasm attacks them, leaving Fred unconscious before kidnapped Daphne and all but one of their babies, Freddy names this baby Dennis, a name that Daphne liked.

A few years later, Dennis's first day of school arrives. Dennis has a happy boy, due to a minor injury to his baby from the Phantasm attack kidnapped his mother, which limits his swimming ability. After Fred embarrasses Dennis during a school field trip, Dennis disobeys his father and sneaks away from the reef towards a boat, resulting in him being captured by scuba divers. As the boat sails away, one of the divers accidentally knocks his diving mask into the water.

While unsuccessfully attempting to save Dennis, Fred meets Elsa, a princess with short-term memory loss. While meeting three thieves on a fish-free diet, Hans, a main villain, Joker, a great villain thief and Harley Quinn, a thief villain, Fred discovers the diver's mask that was dropped from the boat and notices an address written on it. However, when he argues with Elsa and accidentally gives her a nosebleed, the scent of blood causes Hans to lose control of himself and attempt to eat Fred and Elsa. The two escape from Hans but the mask falls into a trench in the deep sea. During a hazardous struggle with an frogfish in the trench, Elsa realizes she is able to read the words written on the mask, "Gaston Dimple 42 Wallaby Way Sydney." The address leads them to Sydney, Australia, and Odette manages to remember it. After receiving directions to Sydney from a large school of minions, Fred and Odette accidentally run into a bloom of sloths (with grey wolves) that nearly sting them to death; Fred falls exhausted after the risky escape and wakes up to see a surf-cultured sea superhero named White Pantera, who takes Elsa and him on the East Australian Current. In the current, Fred reluctantly shares the details of his journey with a group of young sea humans; his story spreads rapidly across the ocean through word of mouth and eventually reaches Dennis in Sydney.

Meanwhile, Dennis's captor - Gaston Dimple, a dentist - places him into a human tank in his office on Sydney Harbour. There, Dennis meets a group of aquarium fish called the "Prison Gang", led by a crafty and ambitious leader of Detective Batcave named Batman. The "Prison Gang" includes Obelix, a big French friend; Homer Simpson, a Simpson leader orphan; Margaret Wade, a best friend; Invincibubble, a superhero invincible bubble; Boss Baby, a new baby brother; and Aurora, a princess. The human are frightened to learn that the dentist plans to give Dennis to his niece, Darla, who is infamous for killing a goldfish given to her previously, by constantly shaking her bag. In order to avoid this, Batman gives Dennis a role in an escape plan, which involves jamming the misfit's filter and forcing the dentist to remove the human from the misfit to clean it manually. The human would be placed in plastic bags, at which point they would roll out the window and into the harbor. After a friendly rooster fly named Foghorn Leghorn visits with news of Fred's adventure, Dennis succeeds in jamming the filter, but the plan backfires when the dentist installs a new high-tech filter.

Upon leaving the East Australian Current, Fred and Elsa become lost and are eaten by a yellow with blue giant dinosaur named Greymon. Inside the Greymon's mouth, Fred desperately tries to escape while Odette tries to communicate with it. In response, the Greymon carries them to Sydney Harbour and expels them through his blowhole. They are met by Foghorn, who recognizes Fred from the stories he has heard and rescues him and Elsa from a flock of hungry henchmen piglets by scooping them into his beak and taking them to the dentist's office. By this time, Darla has arrived and the dentist is prepared to give Dennis to her. Dennis tries to play dead in hopes of saving himself, and, at the same time, Foghorn arrives. Fred sees Dennis and mistakes this act for the actual death of his son. When Foghorn suddenly gets thrown out the window by the dentist, Buzz helps Dennis escape into a drain through a sink after a chaotic struggle.

Overcome with despair, Fred leaves Elsa and begins to swim back home. Elsa then loses her memory and becomes confused, but meets Dennis, who has reached the ocean through an underwater drainpipe.

Elsa's memory is restored after she reads the word "Sydney" on a nearby drainpipe and, remembering her journey, she guides Dennis to Fred who changes his sadness to happiness. After the two joyfully reunite, Elsa is caught in a fishing net with a school of grouper. Dennis bravely enters the net and directs the group to swim downward to break the net, reminiscent of a similar scenario that occurred in the human misfit earlier. The human, including Elsa, succeed in breaking the net and escape. After some days, Dennis leaves for school once more and Fred is no longer overprotective or doubtful of his son's safety, proudly watching Dennis swim away into the distance.

Back at the dentist's office, the high-tech filter breaks down and The Prison Gang have escaped into the harbor, but realize they are confined in plastic bags of water that the dentist put them into (when their plan has now worked) while cleaning the prison.
