"You got the Sea Ukulele! It has a sweet, sea scent!"

— In-Game Description

The Sea Ukulele,[1] also spelled Sea Ukelele,[2] is the eleventh and penultimate item of the trading sequence in Oracle of Ages. It is a simple ukulele that smells like the sea.[1][2]

The Sea Ukulele can be acquired from Rafton, a man who can be found within his home along the South Shore. When approached, Rafton tells Link that he has been thinking of entering a raft race.[3] However, he has yet to find a decent oar to use.[3] Link can give Rafton the Magic Oar,[4] which Rafton says looks like a toy.[5] He likes it, and in exchange gives Link the Sea Ukulele, saying that "lazily playing guitar while gazing at the moon is so nice."[5]

The Sea Ukulele can be used to acquire the twelfth and final item of the trading sequence, the Broken Sword. The Sea Ukulele can be traded to the Old Zora, a senior member of the Zora race who can be found in a cave along the Coast of No Return in the Past. When approached, the Old Zora tells Link about how he misses the smell of the sea.[6] He also mentions that in his youth he was the best Zora musician, and that an instrument would allow him to relive his youth.[7] Taking the hints, Link can give the Old Zora the Sea Ukulele.[8] The Old Zora raves about how the ukulele smells like the sea, and about the the sound it makes.[9] As thanks, the Old Zora gives Link what he says is a Hero's Sword that a great hero gave his ancestors long ago.[9] However, the sword is broken, and whenever Link asks about it, the Old Zora avoids answering.[10][11]
