Star 1: The Deepest Dive EditMario starts the level on a small sand bar in front of the deep basin. In front of him is a sign explaining how the camera behaves terribly in caves it is in front of, and in the water . As the star description says, the star is located in the depths of the abyss. Dive into the water and start swimming downwards. Locate the cave with the dark blue wooden texture (it is slightly to the right bellow where you enter). Go down this passage, passing the red coin, and head into the small cave on the bottom of the column. This leads into another cave that sort of resembles a sunken ship (there is a wooden floor texture and stone walls and ceiling). At the end of this path is the star.
Star 2: Cave Exploration EditJust like the first star, Mario must dive into the basin, but this time head towards the other cave (it is a slightly darker blue). When you first enter this cave, it seems to have nothing in it, but at the other end of the room to the right, there is a hidden passage that leads to the star, but it blends into wall as the textures are identical.
Star 3: Pillars of Precision EditDo not go into the water as the last two stars required, but instead swim into the little cave to the left of the starting platform (on top of the water). This cave leads to a small rocky outcrop with a couple of pillars, a red coin, and the Blue Coin Switch. Mario must jump from each pillar to the next to reach the box that contains the star. A normal jump will suffice to get to each pillar, as you can grab each edge if you miss. Also since you land in the water, there is no danger of death.
Star 4: Red Treasure Hunt EditIn this star Mario must collect the 8 red coins scattered throughout the level. The coins are located as follows:
- On a slope in the cave to the right of the start
- Under the upper exit of the cave
- Next to the purple "!" Switch (Star 5)
- Near the Pillars of Precision
- On the bottom of the main basin
- Near a clam in the Dark Blue cave (Star 2)
- The bottom of the Dark Blue Wooden Column leading to Star 1
- In a clam in the wooden part of the path leading to Star 1
When Mario collects all 8, the star appears in the shallows where Mario first spawns
Star 5: Heavy Metal Required EditNormally Requires Metal Cap! Head to the right of the start towards the purple "!" switch and other bank of land. There is a small platform in the wall that leads to the Green Metal Cap Box (the Switch is in a pipe in the small tunnel in Overworld 1). Grab the cap and press the switch then quickly jump towards the wall closest to you, and ascend the platforms that spawned. This leads to a small area with two yellow "!" boxes, one containing a mass amount of coins, and another that contains the star.
Star 6: Wall of Failure? EditThis star is usually the first one players usually go for, as it is very close to the start of the stage. Head into the cave and climb to the top (use Mario Cam to see the interior of the cave so you can see where you are going). Then Mario must jump across platforms which are embedded in the wall. These jumps can be make using a jump kick with a running start. The star is at the end of these segments.

In the original Mario 64, Jolly Roger Bay has two forms of music, one in the cave area and one for everywhere else. For some reason the cave portions plays at a random part when swimming into the abyss.
