S.O.S. Island Guide

Walkthrough written & screenshots taken by Super Thunder

First, go to SOS Island if you’re not yet there. Your Poptropican will land in a shipwreck. There’s smoke everywhere, and Poptropicans freezing their necks off…

If it were me, I’d say “That sucks… Bye!” and I’d take off on my blimp, but this is Poptropica. So humbly, you risk your life and agree to go into that sinking ship.

Walk over to the door of the Pequod (that’s the ship), and you can’t open it ’cause there’s a giant… piece of ice there. So go to the left, and jump up, till you get to the other giant ice piece hanging above the first ice piece.

Get here, on top of one of the life boats, on the ship. Then, just keep making your way up until you come to a place that looks like this:

That’s the giant ice piece. Click it, and it will fall and break the other piece, leaving you a clear path for the door. Go inside the Pequod and then go up the little staircase. You can try the doors on the first floor, but there’s either something on them, or they’re broken.

Go inside this “Bridge” door, and make your way up the stairs. The ship captain will be calling the survivors. Talk to him, and he’ll tell you that he’s going down with the ship, unless all the passengers get rescued. So he tells you to rescue them, naturally. Click the little knob to the left.

Now you’ll be able to go into some rooms. Go out of that room, and look for room 6. When you find it, go in. A guy will be calling for a whale to help him. But… Wasn’t it an evil whale that slammed into that ship. Click him to rescue him. Talk to him and you’ll both leave the ship, and he’ll give you a whale caller. How nice.

Then, you need to rescue more passengers. Go back in and… Oh no! The water level is now a lot higher. You need to hurry.

Go to the room called the “Ballroom” and go inside. A poor girl is hanging on to a… Chandelier ’cause she can’t swim. Ohhhkay…

You say you’ll think of something. Of course you will. You always do, always will. Jump down, and look for the sparkly bottle and…


No, wait, sorry, got distracted. Get the bottle, and walk swim over to the window on the right.

Click on your bottle icon, and shoot it to the crack on the window.

The water level will rise, and now go to the window on the left, which also has a crack on it. Do the same thing. The water level will rise, I mean, more than it already has, and you’ll be level with the girl.

Get behind her and push her to the door. Another rescue… Check!

That’s the good news. the bad news is that the ship is at a 90 degree angle. Any rock climbers here?

Go inside the ship by jumping on windows, and then you’ll get to this hole on the top. Go down the hole. When you get to the part where the water starts, you’ll see this gadget. Click on it.

The water level will rise more, and the box will float up revealing an entrance. Sinking ship, little oxygen, high water levels… Does your Poptropican take you warnings? No, of course not. They barge right in and happily endanger their lives. So go in. D:

It’s the Ballroom! Again! Only it’s more… Well, watery this time. Swim up and avoid those blobs of jelly that are jellyfishes. :D

Go up to the top and PUZZLE TIME! I know you guys love these. That was sarcasm. I know you all hate them, but they aren’t that bad. It’s like the puzzles in Steamworks, and the little mental boss at the end of Game Show. I can’t help you here, it’s different for everyone, but good luck.

Water pressure builds, and BAM! The pipe go boom. And , well, going down wouldn’t be smart so go up. Poptropican logic.

This next part is extremely hard to describe. It’s another puzzle… But it’s kind of different.

To reduce the pressure, the Worker Girl will start the pressure. Go the little wheel on the other side to turn it off. You’ll need to do this three more times. My advice is, to follow where the pressure starts, pick one color pipe. Then follow it, to turn it off.

Worker Girl will say that she’ll fix the ship. But you tell her that the captain told her to get off, and you leave with her.

Go back in the ship, and move the trash around, The fan will fall, and you can push it away. Go down, and into the Ballroom. From the Ballroom, go into the main hall, and then enter through the open vent, pictured below:

So go in, and once in, go inside the freezer. Yes, they’re actually measuring your body temperature. After swimming in ice I would have thought it didn’t matter, but… Oh well.

But what comes next is even more hilarious.

CHEFSICLE! I laughed over this for such a long time…

Back to business. Push boxes and carrot carts around to make a safe passage for Chefsicle. Then, take him to the furnace. If you make an unfixable mistake, just restart the level.

You defrosted Chefsicle! And now… Oh no… 180 degrees around. Just an average upside down ship. Any, um, ninjas around here?

Go back inside to save the captain. Resurface a lot, and get air bubbles. Watch out for those sharkies…

You’re completely underwater. It’s a fat chance that you’ll get out. But come on, swim through several areas completely submerged in water, avoid the creatures out to get you, collect air bubbles, and eventually…

The truth is out! You find the captain, and the completely positive and happy advice he says is…

Wait, how are you speaking underwater- Never mind. This is Poptropica I’m talking ’bout. Anyway, poor you guys, dying, and then… USE THE WHALE SONG GADGET!

Then yay! Use the wrench to fix the dial, and whaley will come… EAT YOU? It resurfaces and… Spits you out! Fantastic! Yay!

The captain gives you a medallion for saving his life. Really, you deserve like a trillion medallions ’cause you saved him, Swimless Beauty, Chefsicle and a whole bunch of other people. But oh well. Congrats!

But wait! There’s more!

Bonus quest (members only)

Pretty self-explanatory. Tell him yes, you’ll help, and put on the hazmat suit! Then, click on the oil leaks. All done!

  1. Thank you Super Thunder for writing this awesome S.O.S. Island walkthrough! :D

    • i loved it im really done with it

    • Thanks so much for helping me complete S.O.S island. I find it easier to use directions wrote out than looking at a video that doesn’t even speak to you! I enjoy Poptropica very much. Again, thanks so much for helping all of us complete the islands. Your work helps v gamers like us succeed through the gaming world.

      • Silver Whale says:

        Actually, watching a video CAN speak to you, if there’s commentary.

      • CountryCake26 says:

        A little confusing………how do you get into the ship after you save the 2nd person ad the ship is at a 90 degree angle? I can’t seem to get up the rope.

    • every time im at the captin this wire always make me lose all my oygen what do i do

    • hey Slanted Fish is there a way i can help with the blog i have been on poptropica for five years. oh and my username is Fish7607.

      Slanted Fish: See the first Q&A on our FAQ page. :)

  2. Does anyone know if we receive credits? I didn’t notice anything saying “You have earned 100 Poptropica credits” and I didn’t check to see how many credits I already had.

  3. ShaggyShark says:

    I will explain. First of all, Poptropica did’nt do anything wrong , and they lowered the price to make way for new stuff. Poptropicva is changing, and I’ve been playing since 2007, so let Poptropica modernize.

    • me to and i love the new stuff on it but i mean its Credits! when they first came out i bought the astro knights early access pass and now they are taking half of it away it makes no sense

      • I'm mad at the creators, but i still like cheese :D says:

        I’ve been playing since 2007 too, it was fun seeing all the new islands, but now they make a new one waaaay before you can beat the last one, and now they only give you 50 credits for all that hard work?!!! GRRRRR….. >:O

  4. its like the titanic

  5. sos island will be available to everyone on feburary 16

    • #kishon, I tried to access it this morning (by the way, I’m not a member), and it wouldn’t work. I think it might come out this afternoon or tomorrow.

  6. the captin is the last one to get off

  7. it’s WAY to HARD! I done the demo and gave up ALREADY!

  8. I cant get into the windows when the ship is at 90 degrees…..

  9. Thanks. I likes the cheficle. he was SO FUNNY!

  10. the time has came..to tell u that i finished dis island,passed chefcicle while nearly giving up (and laughing mai but off…) and watching my ship do a nose dive ( XDXDXD ) lololololol i laughed more when it said The ship does a nose dive… lol!!

  11. tacotruck101 says:

    Where is the captain??

    • Shaggy Tornado says:

      Captain is in the bridge. To get to the bridge (also to Pawsrent below) find the opening in the ship in the boiler, go to the ballroom, to the main hallway, to the vent for the freezer, to the bridge. Then just avoid the crabs and wires.

    • donutgiraffe says:

      In the first few sections, he’s in the bridge, but in the last section you’ll have to search a bit. Watch a video tutorial if you’re not sure.

  12. I can’t get into the bridge.

  13. Blue Raptor says:

    I can’t get into the ship by jumping on windows. I always fall and need to start all over again.

  14. Blue Raptor says:

    Okay, I did the part when I move the trash and the fan fell down, but I can’t get back up to the top! There’s some steam that blocks me from climbing up.

  15. Blue Raptor says:


  16. I can’t get in the ship!

  17. why you always use THINGY THINGY THINGY, I DON’T UNDERSTAND!!!

  18. how do you get into the ballroom? there is a staircase in the way!

  19. fearless owl says:

    i must say the blog was helpful but alittle vague. but i like it! i want to be able to figure it out by myself but i get stuck alot

  20. OMG!!! Can you believe it??? For every island you complete now, you get 50 credits! That’s soo cheap and messed up!!! :( I liked it better when they gave you 100 credits.

  21. fearless owl says:

    just keep going to the left and dont get hit by the fish with the silerware hats

  22. how do you get into room 6. i pressed the buttons but it says that the room is locked? HELP!!!

  23. I can’t push the girl who can’t swim to the door.

  24. wheres the captin at the end i cant find him

  25. zany bird says:

    The captin is said to go down with his ship. If he’s going to die already, he should have helped the traped ones. Maybe he wanted to face death with company. But still,why take some one esle’s life?

  26. GirlGamer says:

    Poor chef! He’s frozen with an orange stuck to his henie, lettuce in his hand forced to stare at an apple! I hope he’s learned the error off his ways! Never again will he make frozen food!

  27. The only thing keeping me playing Poptropica is the old memories about it…
    Btw,I am Shurjo or Shoeless Ice if you don’t know me,I was a frequent visitor of the PHB and Poptropica up until March 2011.Now I visit rarely to check out whats going on,and complete the new islands,as I will never quit Poptropica,no matter how worse it becomes.I have been playing since 2 days after Nabooti Island’s release.2007 I guess…

  28. Firestar says:

    Super Thunder does okay with her blogs, but she doesn’t write them with descriptions. I have two problems with Super Thunder. #1, She always figures out an island and tells everyone how to do it without that person really trying it by themselves. #2, Super Thunder is appreciated to MUCH!

    The Firestarfan

    • Firestar – Super Thunder (and other guide writers) tell others how to do an island quest because that’s why guides are written, if people need any help. You don’t have to read any spoilers if you would rather do them yourself. Walkthroughs are for those who are stuck. Also, Super Thunder deserves the appreciation she gets; she works hard to help others who are grateful. :)

    • gloria19012 says:

      Sheesh, patience, man!

  29. heidirintoull2012 says:

    great guide A+++

  30. wolfbrotheryeahh says:

    The blog was really helpful, thanks Super Thunder.
    Yes, poptropica is only giving you 50 credits. It’s sad, I know. But Shaggy Shark has a point. Poptropica needed to modernize, and it had to drop stuff. The credits have dropped because there are a LOT more islands than when I started in 2007. If you got a hundred credits for every one, you’d be ridiculously rich, and would be able to live off the product of the original islands. 50 credits means you have to work for what you want in the store.

  31. ADeadlyGuest says:

    never mind, figured it all out, epic guide

  32. It got tricky so I quit doing this isand.TOOOOOOOOOOOOOO freeky.I’m going to Ghost story island now.bye

  33. Mikayla says:

    When the ship turns 90 degrees I can’t get in. I know you have to jump on the windows, but the only one there I can’t get to. There’s a rope to climb on, but it’s the only one. Help?

    • gloria19012 says:

      Mikayla, on the left, there is a platform with an umbrella, so jump to that platform. Then jump on the umbrella. you will be launched up. Then, while at the peak of your jump, move your mouse so it is on the rope. (This might take a few shots). Then keep climbing until you are on the platform where the rope is dangling. then jump on the platform on the left. then keep jumping up until you see a rip/tear in the ship. Enter. Happy jumping!


      PS: Friend me! gloria19012

  34. gloria19012 says:

    Where is the captain of the ship at the last bit where I have to save him? I went EVERYWHERE but there is no captain! WTF??

  35. Spotted Toes says:

    It won’t let me talk to the captain, i think something went wrong.

    Slanted Fish: Make sure you’ve done all the steps leading up to that part. Check with the guide.

  36. I am the best in Poptropica
    if you think so visit me call me on 2595575
    you can have a sleepover

  37. purple fire says:

    Where is the wrench?

  38. Icy Speck says:

    its too hard:( i gave up:0

  39. Massive Star says:

    its not for me,but i got a little trouble saving the captain but i finished it

  40. Super Job Thx

  41. Super cool

  42. Awesome stuff

  43. dizzy bones says:

    how do we go to the other piece of ice?

  44. Icy Speck says:

    working on this island now. :) Just finished shrink ray.


  46. Blue Wolf says:

    It’s Moby Dick and Titanic all over again. Only this time, mixed together.
    Those sharks scare me… They look like they’re part piranha.

  47. You need to make a walk through for Willy Wonka chocolate factory. I need one for it bad.

  48. Will most people now what plagiarism is -_-

    • They most definitely should be aware of it! Plagiarism is even explained in the “Important!” widget on the PHB sidebar. It’s basically taking someone else’s work and claiming it as your own/not giving credit where it’s due.

  49. there is a glitch and it wont let me talk to the captain. i already fixed the whale gadget, it just wont let me talk to the captain. And when i try to use the whale gadget it says ,”i dont need the white whale right now”

  50. How do you get in the ship in the bonus quest?

  51. IT WAS PRETTY AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  52. Perfect Sky says:

    thanks for the guide it was so easy now for thanks so much

  53. Rockstar says:

    I like Poptropica more then marbles and Pokemons.And I like all the islands in Poptropica.

  54. Thank you i finally beat all the 33 islands

  78. Poptropica Player aminahussain9 says:

    This was the most annoying island in the whole poptropica land -_- my poptropican is the most annoying poptropican on this island -_- thx for guide other wise i wouldn’t of completed it :D

  79. There is this problem, at the end, I pass through the electric wires and that is not that difficult and I have this technical problem of me not talking to the captain. I can’t seem to have a conversation with him due to the specific reason the wind is pushing me and my feet are trying to walk to talk with the captain but my poptropican feet isn’t deliberately moving. Is there a resolution to this frustrating problem?

    • Nevermind, the conflict is solved as it was a mere glitch and I hope nobody gets a potential glitch on Poptropica. I solved it by reloading the page and I successfully had a conversation with Captain Boomer and achieved the goal medal. Thanks for the help and hopefully it potentially assists other people too in future.

  80. OMG thanks add me people I am _May0404_

  81. I can’t find the captain when it’s at 180 degrees

  82. random Poptropica girl says:

    I don’t know why, but after I helped the girl with the pipes, I went back in and tried to go into the exit thingy. But, It was underwater and the ship had halfway sunk. I couldn’t get to it. Why is this?

  83. Thanks for the walkthru

  84. After you exit the ballroom, from the pipe room, where is the open vent? I keep moving around to find it. I see like 2 vents, but I can’t get through because there are boxes in front of them. What do I do?????? Help me plz

  85. how do you get over the ice without slipping?

  86. You need to write a lot more guides Super Thunder!!!!!!!

  87. Hello, it might be useful to add the part where you have to push the chefsicle up the ramp and get him out of the freezer, cos you didn’t mention that part and I got kinda confused on where to push chefsicle to. ._.

  88. silverbones says:

    hey Im in the second submergedroom with the jellyfish and cant find a way out please help ASAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    • Ah, I found the answer. You have to jump on the lights, the vent is above you. I spent 15 minutes swimming around underwater trying to find the vent XD

  93. Speedy Coyote says:

    Slanted Fish: Sorry to hear that. :( Try contacting Poptropica support for help; also, note that non-members can’t costumize from their closets, but you can try getting a costume back if you have album photos.

  94. lol

  95. help me! when I try to click the gadget thingamabob it doesn’t do anything. do you know why? write back as soon as possible plz.
