Mario’s goal is to track down Bowser, and he needs Power Moons to do it. Beating the stuffing out of the Koopa king and getting Peach back are the goals, but most of the work toward those goals involves digging up Power Moons. During the first visit to each new kingdom, some Power Moons need to be collected from that region for the Odyssey to refuel and repair for the journey forward.

Seaside Kingdom Power Moon:
There are 71 Power Moons in Seaside Kingdom. You will obtained 2 Power Moons automatically through the kingdom’s objectives, which still requires 3 extra Power Moons for Odyssey refueling. All others are listed below.
On the Cliff Overlooking the Beach
This Power Moon is found out in the open just south of the Odyssey, up the cliff’s face on a high shelf. It’s easy to jet up here thanks to the help of all the octopus-like Gushens in the region. Capture a Gushen and jet upward to the shelf underneath the Power Moon’s ledge, then jet from there upward to the Power Moon.
Ride the Jetstream
Along the southern rock wall, not far from the Hint Art painting, there’s a small cave. Heading into this small cave while controlling a captured Gushen reveals that the entrance leads straight upward. Jet upward through a bunch of coin rings, then jet laterally where possible to discover another chamber, complete with a Tanooki Mario glyph on the wall like an ancient cave painting, and a Power Moon hovering above.
Ocean-Bottom Maze: Treasure
Between Lighthouse and Glass Palace on the seafloor to the west, four 8-bit pipes are arrayed in a square. They connect to different corners of a big 8-bit maze, beautifully clouded by the 3D ocean sitting above it. Figuring out how to get to the Power Moon at the middle is a bit of a puzzle. The first thing you have to do is enter via one of the bottom pipes, then head to the bottom-left corner of the 8-bit maze. Jump on the left here to reveal hidden blocks. These blocks will later catch Mario when falling from the top half, where the green Koopa Troopas patrol. To get up there, enter from the top-right pipe.
Ocean-Bottom Maze: Hidden Room
An extra Power Moon is slyly hidden in the underwater 8-bit maze. Enter from the bottom-right pipe and look for a patrolling red Koopa Troopa. Knock him into his shell and kick him over the left edge and he’ll break a brick block at crouch height below. Get a dashing start moving toward this waist-sized hole, then crouch right before getting to it. Properly done, Mario slides through the gap, ending up in a secret Power Moon vault.
Underwater Highway Tunnel
Just a bit northwest of the Lighthouse, under the waves, a square passage through the rock can be found. You’ll know the right one because three Cheep Cheeps swim in formation at either entrance. Between the Cheep Cheep patrols, in the middle, are curious brick blocks on the floor. Swim down there and ground pound the brick blocks to reveal a Power Moon in the shaft below.
Gap in the Ocean Trench
The central feature of the north sea is a big trench that was perhaps carved out as an ancient impact crater or geological feature. Capture a Cheep Cheep and explore the northern rock face of the trench, looking for an entrance. There’s a hallway-sized gap that leads to some coin rings up above, and a Power Moon down below. Bring a Cheep Cheep, because Mario doesn’t have the lungs for these corridors.
Slip Through the Nesting Spot
The far northeastern corner of the ocean floor here is a notorious Maw-Ray nesting spot, with a cavernous den in the corner. Swim close enough, and a Maw-Ray can be baited out, giving some idea as to their snapping range here. Bait a Maw-Ray out, wait for it to retract, then follow it quickly into the passage. Trust us! There’s a side passage inside, leading to a hoarded Power Moon.
Dorrie is the huge purple top hat wearing creature supporting the purple Crazy Cap’s shop. Climb aboard this friendly creature to do some regional souvenir shopping, but plunge into the water around it and look underneath where it swims to find a Power Moon.
Dorrie is the giant yellow sea creature that one segment of Crazy Cap’s has set up shop upon. Above its head, floating in midair, is a Power Moon. To get this, you’ll need a Gushen, so you can jet up for altitude, then surge laterally to keep up with the gentle giant’s surprisingly quick forward movement, which drags the Power Moon with it.
What the Waves Left Behind
On the eastern islands (which are more like rocky sandbars), there is a peculiar circular pool, perhaps attended by a Komboo or two. Clear the seaweed then ground pound the center of the pool to pop out a Power Moon.
The Back Canyon: Excavate!
Farther northwest along the cliff wall, beyond the path where spiky shells roll down a canyon, a network of small ledges covered in Mini Goombas and Moonsnakes can be found. Somersault up the ledge side or use a Gushen to jet right to the top, then look around where the Moonsnakes spin for a glowing spot. Pound the spot from the air when the Moonsnake isn’t immediately underneath to spring out a covered Power Moon.
Bubblaine Northern Reaches
At this location underwater, there are just three nondescript bumps surrounding a larger nondescript bump. However, look closer and notice that one of the bumps is glowing. Ground pound the underwater mound and you begin a flood of Komboos up from the muck of the ocean floor. A different mound then begins glowing. Ground pound each mound in turn while using Cappy to fend off Komboos. Eventually the largest mound glows. Spin throw the rest of the Komboos away from the big mound, then ground pound the center to release the Power Moon from the seaweed.
Wriggling on the Sandy Bottom
A bit northwest of the Lighthouse, there’s a door to be found on the bottom of the sea. Open it with Cappy and swim inside to find a strange challenge indeed. Something’s stuck under the floor in here, wriggling this way and that beneath the surface. Slow the fleeing bulge with hat tosses so you can ground pound it, stopping the scurrying and revealing a Power Moon.
Glass Palace Treasure Chest
In the northern sea, capture a Cheep Cheep then look around underwater for the substructure of the Glass Palace. Approaching from the north, you find a passage underneath it, filled with Komboos. Swim inside, shaking the controller for the Cheep Cheep’s Komboo-shredding spin attack, and look along the left wall down here. A gap can be found containing a treasure chest, with the Power Moon kept inside.
Treasure Trap Hidden in the Inlet
Look to the place where the sea channels in through the beach and under the stone walls in the southwest. Plunge underwater, dodging the Komboos creeping along the seafloor, and swim south in the inlet to discover that it leads to a hidden cave! Inside are four treasure chests, but they must be opened in a certain order. If the order is botched, the treasure chests spit out Chincho enemies then disappear until the enemies are defeated.
Sea Gardening: Inlet Seed
The resort roof is a perfect place for some horticulture, and there’s a Bubblainian green thumb up here who wants some plants to look after. There are four prepared pots, and four unique seeds to find in the kingdom. The nearest seed is in the little inlet just slightly east, on the shallow seafloor. Retrieve it, plant it in one of the pots, then use a Gushen to generously water the plant until it blossoms.
Sea Gardening: Canyon Seed
This seed is on top of some ledges above the shore to the west, near the Rolling Canyon checkpoint flag. Climb the ledges to the seed, dodging Moonsnakes and Mini Goombas, and bring it to the resort in the northeast along the beach. Plant it in one of the four pots on the roof, then use a Gushen’s downward water stream to water the plant, eventually causing a Power Moon to bloom.
Sea Gardening: Hot-Spring Seed
One of the seeds basically couldn’t be any farther away. It’s located around some Gushens at Hot Spring Island, in the northeast corner. You have to lug the seed from there all the way to here without losing it. Luckily, Mario can swim while holding items, so it’s not really a big deal. As with other seeds, when this one is embedded in the soil and sprouted, it’s time to dump a few Gushen water sacks into the plant to make sure it ripens.
Sea Gardening: Ocean Trench Seed
This seed is found near the riddling Sphynx statue, deep in the trench in the northern sea. Warp to Ocean Trench East or West then swim to the middle to get there directly. Locate the seed at the bottom on a pedestal, being mindful of Mario’s oxygen. Grab the seed and swim all the way to the resort in the southwest to plant it in fertile, tended soil. Like with the other seeds, this one needs to be thoroughly watered once planted, but happily the octopus population here is thrilled to help with this.
