While Link is searching for the key to Angler's Tunnel, he finds a lazy Walrus has blocked the path into the desert. He must bring Marin from Mabe Village so she can sing the Ballad of the Wind Fish to awaken him. Afterward, if Link plays the Ballad of the Wind Fish on his Ocarina on this screen, the Walrus will surface in the water, thinking that it was Marin.
One of the four Warp Holes of Koholint Island can be found in the East of the Bay region. It can only be reached through a southeastern exit of Animal Village. If Link enters it, the portal will take him to either Ukuku Prairie, Tal Tal Heights, or Tal Tal Mountain Range, as long as he has seen the portals in those other three regions.
