Area Information[]

In the first pool between islands you can find:

  • A current that leads to a dead end and a crab
  • A current that leads downward that you can use a rock to push down
  • An Orca here tells you "The storm that has taken your pod shook the entire ocean" before swimming away.
  • There's a lock glyph hidden here that acts as a barrier but you can swim around, it's at a dead end and singing to it has it say the same thing as the dolphin from Bay of Medusa. "I know not what has happened to your pod. | Perhaps the big blue will help you. | You must travel past the Undercaves to find him..."

Second and Third pool does not lead anywhere

Fourth Pool leads into the Fifth pool

Fifth pool

  • Go down left to through spikes to find a key glyph
  • Go down right to a purple eight arms, who is guarding the path to a lock glyph
  • Past the lock there is a maze of tunnels, swim down to the far left to find the key glyph in an opening with sharks and falling spikey shells
  • When swimming back through the tunnels the second tunnel up will have a lock glyph if you have the key glyph you can sign to pass this one and continue to Deep Water.

Sixth Pool

  • Has a dolphin that tells you: "All life in the sea is frightened this makes the sea a very dangerous place"
  • Has another Dolphin that tells you "Sing to shelled ones and they will heal your wounds"
