Whale Island
The earliest time Whale Island can be unlocked is on Spring 1 of year one. If you speak with either Mist or Stella, you will receive dialogue prompting the hero to investigate the beanstalk in front of the Clock Tower. Travel to the Church District and water the shimmering sprout located to the right of the Clock Tower to trigger the growth of the beanstalk and enjoy the cutscene that follows.

Note: Visiting Whale Island for the first time triggers the main storyline.


Once you have 8LP with a girl, the whale will stop you as you enter Whale Island and tell you that it wants to swim in the ocean. Go to the beach and you will be able to find a tidal cluster, bring that up to whale island and agree to give it to the whale. Once you're at 10LP with a girl and have gotten the Bouquet Recipe from Stella, the Whale will now provide you with Baleen in exchange for the tide cluster - this is a key ingredient in the Bouquet that you'll need to propose marriage to your girl.

Whale Island Fin

Whale Island Fin Map

The Fin is the area where you first encounter Iris Blanche; until you meet her, visiting this area at night will trigger a cutscene where she will go inside her house, which will be inaccessible until after her conditions are met. There will also be a locked gate in the northeasternmost section of this place. To unlock Iris Blanche, you must plant Moondrop Flower seeds in the plot in front of her tower. However, the cutscene will not trigger until after Rosetta mentions a place where moondrop flowers grow most beautifully due to the strong moonlight. You can either buy the seeds from Rosetta (after she opens Materia in Spring), or if you have a maker, wait until the flower festival where you can acquire a moondrop from Eunice for free. This is the first area where you can acquire a transport monster, the Silver Wolf.

Whale Island Flank

To open the gate that gives you access to the Flank, you must first trigger a dream sequence. Visit Mist on a sunny day (any season) and keep talking to her until she mentions a strange seed she found. You must also talk to her as she is watering the seed between 9am and 11am on a sunny day. To trigger the dream, you need to go to bed sometime before 10pm. Also, you need to have one friend-smiley with Iris to trigger the event. The next holiday, visit Iris's tower sometime after 6pm by climbing the beanstalk on the tiny island to the left in Lake Poli (Sprout appears after Lute mentioned it) and you will see a scene where a strange man leaves the tower and unlocks the gate. Once you gain access to the Flank, travel to the north-western corner and head toward the glittering boulder. Break this boulder to unlock the shortcut leading to Whale Island Cave Surface.

Whale Island Tail Tree

The Tail Tree has an enormous Rune atop it, something that Raguna will take note of when he first visits the Tail. On a later visit to the Tail, Raguna will notice how the Rune has shrunk. The Tail tree is also known for the enormous fruit that rolls down the slope of the tree's main path. Luckily, there are four side ramps that can be used to avoid being squished. At the base of one of the side ramps is some black mining rocks and a chest, which may contain a little crystal.
