S.O.S. Island

Guide / Videos / Map / Tour

When a whale-watching expedition strikes an iceberg, a pleasure cruise becomes a disaster scene. As the ship sinks deeper and deeper into the frigid waters of the North Atlantic, can you rescue everyone onboard before it’s too late?

  • SOS Island is Poptropica’s 24th island. The countdown started on January 20, 2012 and it was released on January 26 for members with a demo for non-members. It was opened to all on February 16, 2012. The Titanic sank in April 1912, almost 100 years ago from the SOS Island release date.
  • The name of the island (S.O.S) is an international Morse code distress signal commonly associated with phrases such as “save our ship.” However, “SOS” does not stand for anything.
  • The Pequod is the name of the ship in Moby Dick as well as SOS Island.
  • For the first time ever, Poptropica Members can play a bonus quest after completing S.O.S. Island. The ship may have sunk, but the adventure isn’t over. It’s up to you to descend to the ocean’s darkest depths and stop a dangerous oil leak before it’s too late!
  • Plus, Members get a Member Gear Pack of costumes and special powers! Members get an additional S.O.S. Island gear pack, which includes Sonar Power and a Fishing Pole.
  • Common room: Daggoo’s Fish Market (Daggoo is a character in Moby Dick.)
  • According to a Poptropica framework file, this island’s code name is “Shipwreck”.
  • Captain Boomer is a reference to Captain Ahab from Moby Dick, being the captain of the S.S. Pequod who doesn’t like the White Whale (resembling a sperm whale). In the end, the White Whale on S.O.S. Island saves Captain Boomer, but in the book, Moby Dick kills Captain Ahab.
