Whale Course[1] is the third and final level of the Turtle Zone in Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins. This level takes place inside a whale. The octopus is fought at the end of this level.


At the start of the level are two large tusks above Mario, then two Aqua Goombas and some coins surrounded by bumps. Next is a long sparkly platform Mario is able to swim and fall through, similar to the sap from In the Trees. Mario can use it to reach coins and a ? Block containing a Carrot, though there are more sharp tusks underneath. After this are a few more bumps as well as tusks which move up and down, hurting Mario if touched. After another Aqua Goomba are more platforms Mario can fall and swim through. In this area, there is a Para-Goomba and coins underneath between tusks. The Mid-Point Bell comes just after this.

After the checkpoint are six ? Blocks, two Aqua Goombas, two large tusks above, and a pool of water underneath with a Honebon in it. There are then a few more Aqua Goombas as well as Koopa Troopas, with tusks in the middle with coins between them. There is then a large pool of water with another Honebon in it. There are tusks both above and underneath, as well as coins, a ? Block, and a Hidden Block which contains a Moneybag. Finally, there is a Para-Goomba, a Koopa Troopa, and the pipe which takes Mario to the battle with octopus.
