After an introductory cutscene you are introduced to Finny and Kappa. Once you have control swim over to the turtle that is a Kappa. He needs your help gathering the Master Statues. Before he lets you leave there will be a tutorial on the controls. If you encounter any troubles with the tutorial refer to the Getting Started section on a guide for the more complicated maneuvers. Once you are led out of the tutorial area and asked to bring back a Master Statue to Kappa your adventure begins in Home waters.
