Sea Tower Walkthrough

1 Sea Tower - Opening the Sea Tower.png
Place the Power, Courage, and Wisdom Orbs on the Sea Tower's gate. This unlocks and opens the gate. Go inside.
At the island's entrance, tear Olly's tape off the Purple #4 Pipe. This will give you quick access back to previously-explored locations.
2 Once inside the Sea Tower, head north across the sliding platforms until you reach the platform with giant head statues of the Water and Earth Vellumentals.
3 Sea Tower Sidestepper Red Gem.png
Head west and enter the doorway to follow the blue Sidestepper holding a Red Gem.
4 Sea Tower Pull the Tape.png
Head southwest and jump to the upper level. Follow the upper path to the pillar in the northeast corner. Remove Olly's tape to lower the pillar and gain access to follow the Sidestepper. Follow the Sidestepper into the center entryway.
5 Sea Tower Sidestepper Red Gem Trick 2.png
Along the 2-shaped path, trap the Sidestepper by hitting all the top-read crack until the Water Elemental head falls down onto it. Time it so that you can hit it after it gets confused and turns back. If it hits you, you'll have to defeat it in a Ring Battle, but if you swing your Hammer correctly you can defeat it without a battle to receive the Red Gem.
6 Sea Tower Gate Opens.png
Go back to the central room. On the west side, place the Red Gem inside the mouth of the small Water Vellumental statue. This reveals a stairway going up in the center of the platform. Go up the stairway and into the entryway. This exits you to the Sea Tower's balcony, which spirals upwards, along the Sea Tower's exterior walls.
7 Sea Tower Up the Platforms.png
Continue up the balcony and jump on the platform to ride up. When you reach the next entryway, go inside.
8 This leads you to a platform with giant Ice and Fire Vellumental head statues. Head east, down the steps and to the frozen area. Slide on the ice, heading west into the entryway. Continue sliding west and jump onto the steps ahead, head up the steps, and enter a room with a sliding platform puzzle.
9 Sea Tower - Ice Blocks 3rd.pngEnlarge
Break all blocks except those shown in the above image. Solve the puzzle by sliding the platform from its northeast position to the spiked square hole on the west, in the following order: down, left, up, right, down, left, up. Jump up to the small platform and slide down the slope, heading east. This gives you access to an entryway to the east, lit by 2 torches. Go inside.
10 Sea Tower Fire Puzzle.png
Head north without getting burned, by jumping only onto the platforms that light up, in the opposite order that they lit up. Go into the the entryway heading west, returning you to the giant Vellumental head statues.
11 Sea Tower Iron Ball.png
Step on the Magic Circle. Use 1000-Fold Arms to pull the rope ahead. This releases a boulder which rolls down the slope and presses the red button behind the Fire Vellumental head, making the head breathe fire that melts the ice covering the Ice Vellumental's mouth, creating a path for you to progress.
12 Sea Tower Avoid the Sledge Bro.png
Head west to that new path and go in the entryway, heading north. This exits you to the balcony. Continue up along the balcony until you reach a platform that raises you to the Sea Tower's peak.
13 Sea Tower - Tape Intro.png
Walk to the center to start a Boss Battle with Tape. After defeating it, use 1000-Fold Arms to break and clear the Purple Streamer. This increases your MAX Confetti.How to Beat Tape
14 Sea Tower use the Vellumental Power.png
Stay on top of the Sea Tower and press the button on each Vellumental totem. With the rainbow Magic Circle, use the same Vellumental as the totem, to gain access to each totem's button. Pressing the totems' buttons make them face and shoot lasers towards the center, creating a pillar of light, leading to Shangri-Spa.

Tips and Strategies

Use the Sliding Platforms with Pointy Ears

Sea Tower Pointy Ear Sliding Platforms.pngEnlarge

The sliding platforms in the first room often slide back into the wall before the next platform has come out, forcing Mario to move backwards. Use the platforms with pointy ears, as these platforms will never slide completely into the wall. Get to one of these platforms and stop, then wait for the right platforms to come out and form a path ahead.

Hammer the Blue Sidestepper

Sea Tower Hit the Sidestepper 2.png

If you Hammer it with good timing, you can skip the battle with the Blue Sidestepper to retrieve the Red Gem. After trapping it by lowering the statue head in the northwest, it will move between the upper two heads repeatedly, so watch it and time its movements to get in a perfect swing!

Boss Strategy Guide


Sea Tower - Tape Intro.png

Even as stationary goods go, Tape looks unintimidating, but it's got a few tricks up its sleeve. Be sure to hit the treasure chest to reveal all the tiles, as it will hide any tile you've previously used in there.

In the second phase, Tape will start to tape rows and rings together, making them unshiftable and limiting your options. Use the Fire Vellumental to get rid of the tape it places, and use the Hands to lay on the hurt!
