Gangplank Galleon Ahoy!,[1] sometimes named Gangplank Galleon,[2] is the starting area the Kongs venture through in Donkey Kong Land. The name of this world indicates that the Kremling ship, Gangplank Galleon, is somewhere near.

Aside from traveling on the coast of Donkey Kong Island, which consists of wild jungles and icy summits, the Kongs also need to pass through Gangplank Galleon, anchored on the shore.

Gangplank Galleon returns from Donkey Kong Country. It hosts a boss fight against a stingray called Wild Sting, and also features two other levels. The first level has the Kongs climbing the masts of the ship, heading towards the top. The second one involves the Kongs traveling across the deck of Gangplank Galleon.


Gangplank Galleon Ahoy! is the world with the most levels in Donkey Kong Land. It features nine regular levels, while every other world has seven levels. Four of the levels take place in a jungle, three take place in a snowscape, and three take place on a ship (including the boss level).
