Daniel Tiger and Katerina Kittycat head to Jungle Beach with Mom Tiger who reminds them that they must stop and listen to her to stay safe. Daniel and Katerina set out to find a starfish after being reminded of some other general beach rules.

As they walk the beach, Daniel and Katerina collect shells before Mom Tiger catches up when they travel a bit too far. They hold one shell to their ears to "hear the ocean" before asking Mom Tiger for help in gathering some water to clean the shell. Mom Tiger explains that animals sometimes live inside shells and Daniel make-believes about what that would be like.

When Katerina finds a crab, she and Daniel follow behind it doing a crab walk. For a moment, they lose sight of Mom Tiger but remember to listen for her which quickly leads them in her direction. After finding a starfish, Daniel and Katerina are joined by Mom Tiger for some fun in the water before using the shells they found to decorate a sand castle.
