|This article is about the Floating Island. You may be looking for the Mountain Island or the Underwater Islands.|
The Floating Island is a unique island biome in Subnautica. It is located towards the southwest of the Aurora. It is a large landmass completely supported by giant Floaters located underneath the Island.
The Floating Island is fully explorable, and very hot, the temperature on this island reaches upwards of 40°C. The island boasts a grand variety of colorful, terrestrial flora that covers most of the Island's surface. It can be accessed from one the main beach or via the underwater entrance at its center. The Island is a good source of edible plants, namely the Lantern Tree, Marblemelon, and Chinese Potato, which are exclusive to this Island and can be found in various abandoned growbeds.
A Slave Warp Gate can be found inside a cave on the Floating Island, its master is located within a cave on the Mountain Island. To reach the warp gate, follow the island trails until you reach the bridge; the gate is inside one of the caves connected to one of the side paths.
There are also three abandoned seabases built by the survivors of the Degasi, one located at the center and one on each of the mountains of the Floating Island. To reach the two mountaintop seabases, follow the left fork on the dirt path near the beach. The path will fork again before a bridge crossing, with each fork leading to one of the two mountaintops. To reach the central seabase, take the right fork near the beach and follow it around the edge of the Island (It is also possible to simply climb down from one of the mountains to the central seabase). An abandoned farm constructed by Bart Torgal can also be found here next to a naturally made land bridge. It consists of Chinese Potato Plants and Marblemelons.
