Full shot of the Tolbi-bound Ship docked in the Kalay Docks.

The Tolbi-bound Ship (トレビ行きの船 Going-to-Tolebi Ship) is the vessel that conveys Isaac and party across the Karagol Sea to Tolbi. A Boat Ticket can be purchased at the Kalay Docks, and at the docks is where the ship is anchored. However, the ships that have been sailing across the Karagol have been plagued by sea monsters as of late. Because of this, the captain will not set sail without his Anchor Charm. One of the crew men stole it and hid it atop the mast because he was scared to set sail, but Isaac and his friends recover this charm. After that, they, along with Sean and Ouranos volunteer to help fight off the monsters, much to the relief of the captain, his first mate Kaja, and the rest of the crew and passengers. The journey on the ship is fraught with monster attacks, with monsters taking out four of the ship's oarsmen. Isaac is tasked with selecting replacements from among the passengers, and the right combination can land the ship on Crossbone Isle. The battles on the ship culminate with a showdown with the Kraken. Sadly, the ship arrives too late for the Colosso hopefuls on board to enter the tournament.

The Kraken invades the Tolbi-bound Ship and knocks out Sean and Ouranos before meeting Isaac's challenge.

Once the ship reaches the Tolbi Docks and you disembark, it is not possible to get back onto the ship. It is possible to find a hidden item inside a barrel in the captain's cabin. This should be picked up before leaving the ship.

Route to Crossbone Isle[edit | edit source]

Main article: Crossbone Isle

There is a special way to make the ship go off course, however. After the first encounter with the sea monsters, Kaja will make you pick an oarsman to replace the one who has fallen to the the Man o' Wars. Talk with the man with a sword in the Green Threads ( He says: "Hey! You're not thinking of making me an oarsman, are you?"). Then after Kaja makes you pick another oarsman, pick the bald man (He says: "What? Ohhhh, noooo... Are you going to make me row?"). After that, pick the chef (He says: "You... You must be joking. You want me to row?"). Lastly, after finishing with the Kraken, pick the old man (He says: "Out of all these people, you're asking a frail old man like me to row?"). You'll know you did it right when the boat visibly goes northwest instead of just west after the Kraken battle. Kaja then says says he doesn't think the ship has been heading to Tolbi. When you've made it to the island, the crew debates on whether they let everyone off or not. Since nobody on the ship knows about the island, they send you out to land on the uncharted area. You may choose to explore, or you may return to the ship without going through the island.

By choosing an imbalanced rowing team, it is possible to stumble across the legendary Crossbone Isle.

The above is actually one of several available configurations of rowing passengers; another is to first use the bald man, then the blonde lady, then the purple merchant/tour guide, and finally the senile old man. Essentially, as Camelot Software Planning explained on their official Golden Sun website, the idea is to choose stronger passengers to be the oarsmen on the port (left) side and the weaker passengers to be the oarsmen on the starboard (right), to achieve enough of the imbalance that the ship veers off course.

On the world map, there is a large rock with an opening in the middle. You want to go in that opening. You'll be greeted by a puzzle. Welcome to Crossbone Isle. Even though you can't complete the dungeon in its entirety due to a lack of certain Psynergy, you can rack up on some experience points as well as obtaining some nice stat-boosting items including the Mystery Blade, one of the strongest weapons during this time. After clearing the first three floors and beating the fourth floor's boss, you'll face a puzzle that can only be solved with the Cloak Psynergy, which can only be acquired later in the game. However, there is one treasure chest that is attainable, if you have the Halt Gem. Afterwards, head back to the (now) Tolbi-Bound Ship, where Kaja will order the rowers to switch places, to safely sail to Tolbi.

Collectibles[edit | edit source]

Since the Tolbi-bound Ship cannot be reentered after completing the crossing across Karagol Sea, most of the items below can be permanently missed:

Coin.gif 23 Coins: In a barrel right in front of you as soon as you enter the passenger room.
Anchor Charm.gif Anchor Charm: After you see the blue-capped crew member taking this item away from the captain's bridge, it will end up on top of the mast. Climb up it, get the charm, and give it to the boat captain following the necessary cutscenes to progress. (This item cannot be missed.)
Lucky Medal.gif Lucky Medal: In the lower right barrel of the storage room below-decks.
Nut.gif Nut: In the captain's bridge, this is in a white jar.
