A new enemy, the Bully, makes its appearance in this level. You can’t defeat them by simply jumping on them though, you have to force them off the ledge. This is difficult because they bounce you backwards, but Fireballs and Boomerangs make short work of them. Defeat the first Bully at the beginning then walk the narrow planks to the second ship.

Grab the Fire Flower then push the two Bullies over the edge to spawn Green Star #1 , your reward for your combat prowess. Climb up to another Warp Box that takes you into the ship. Jump through the Peepas to grab the Stamp then stay along the top platforms to reach a Super Star.

Defeat the two bullies on the ship for a Star (left). Soon after you will see the Stamp (right).

Put it to good use by jumping into the water to your left and sliding all the way down to Green Star #2 at the bottom after clearing out some Boos. Swim back up and return to the deck of the ship.

Hit the Checkpoint Flag then head to an area filled with planks that rotate and Boos that attempt to knock you off the narrow passage. It’s easy to just dash around the right side then Long Jump over to Green Star #3 , it also cuts down on your chances to get hit by a Boo and fall off from going all the way around.

The second Star is in a small area at the bottom of the watery area (left). The final Star can be found on the tilting platforms (right).

The final ship has you battling three Bullies, so throw Fireballs at them until you take them all out. The Goal Pole can be capped easily if you can avoid the spiked roller on the shifting platform.
