Marooner's Bay is a Salmon Run- and Salmon Run Next Wave-exclusive online multiplayer stage in Splatoon 2 and Splatoon 3. It was released in Splatoon 3 on 1 December 2022, at the start of the Chill Season 2022.


Marooner's Bay features a large metal ship marooned on a sandbar with its stern having three ramps down onto the beach where there are three piers on the starboard side. During low tide, a sandbar will rise to the fore of the ship, revealing a large ring of land and one smaller protrusion.


  • During high tide, only the ship may be accessed with all Salmonids advancing from the stern. The propeller lifts become unusable.
  • During low tide, the shoreline is revealed beyond the bow of the ship. While a Cohock Charge occurs, three Ink Cannons will spawn; one atop the ship, and two on the beach.

Marooner's Bay returns to Salmon Run in #Splatoon3's Chill Season! Fend off the Salmonid hordes on the beaches, then make a hasty retreat to higher ground when the tide comes in. The raised shipwreck offers some handy elevation!

  • In Splatoon 2:
    • Prior to version 3.2.0, when the tide changed from low to mid, it was possible for a player to go back to the shoreline and jump onto the low tide egg basket's pedestal. When the water finished rising, they would be stranded there.
    • As of version 3.2.0, the gusher previously closest to the top of the port side propeller lift was removed, and the moving pattern of the Goldie was adjusted.
    • The loadout for the rotation on 21 April 2018 at 18:00 UTC was Sloshing Machine, Dapple Dualies, Tri-Slosher, and Classic Squiffer, all based on common cleaning supplies in Japan. The fact that this took place on this ship whose Japanese name is Don Burako can be construed as a parody of Momotarō, a popular Japanese folk tale that begins with the peach boy protagonist found adrift (donburako) on a river by an old lady who was washing clothes.
  • On some of the kebabs with sausages, there is a symbol similar to the Illuminati.
  • The cargo boat that makes up a significant part of the stage was landlocked several decades ago, but was never removed and became inhabited by Salmonids.
  • A complex reef surrounds Marooner's Bay, making it dangerous for small boats to come near the area.[3]
  • If a player is on the propeller lifts before the beginning of a wave when the tide level changes from medium to high, the lifts will cease functioning and the player will drown.
