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.


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.


SRL Real Estate back with info on a Salmon Run stage coming during Chill Season - Marooner's Bay! It's an egg-collector's dream with sandbars and a ship in need of minor TLC. Views abound from all elevations, and the land comes with tideland rights! Just don't linger at low tide...

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!

  • When the tide changes from low to mid, it is possible for a player to go back to the shoreline and jump onto the low tide egg basket's pedestal. When the water finishes rising, they will be stranded there.
    • This is fixed as of Version 3.2.0.
  • As of Version 3.2.0, the gusher previously closest to the top of the port side propeller lift is removed, and the moving pattern of the Goldie is 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 folklore 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. Though it 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.[Citation needed]
