The Ocean Sanctuary is a location found within the Ocean Realm of the new Hyrule seen in Spirit Tracks.

Features and Overview

The sanctuary is situated on a small island just beyond Papuchia Village and primarily serves as the abode of the realm's Lokomo guardian, Carben. The outside of the sanctuary, which is divided in two parts, is the biggest sanctuary in all of Hyrule.

Link comes to the sanctuary to meet with Carben after restoring just enough of the realm's lost Spirit Tracks to reach it. In order to access the chamber of the sanctuary in which Carben is located, Link must trace the paths of the stone statues' gazes that are scattered throughout the sanctuary.[1] Once he draws the correct figure on a panel, the door to the chamber will open only to reveal an empty room with a note left by Carben that mentions he is Papuchia Village.[2] After getting Carben's attention with the use of the Song of Birds, Link takes Carben aboard the Spirit Train and returns with him to the sanctuary, fighting off invading pirates along the way.[3] At the sanctuary, the pair, with the help of Link's Spirit Flute and Carben's flute, play the required Lokomo Song to restore the lost Spirit Tracks that lead to the entrance of the Ocean Floor and, eventually, to the Ocean Temple.
