The Sand Sailer is a bird-shaped raft that appears in Super Mario Galaxy 2. It only appears in Slipsand Galaxy, in the level Sailing the Sandy Seas. This raft is made of brick that disappears when it is hit by cacti and enemy attacks, such as a Magikoopa's beams or Silver Chomps. However, they reappear after some seconds. Within the mission, Mario must ride the Sand Sailer to avoid falling into the deadly quicksand that makes up the surface of its planet until he reaches a Power Star.
