"Picking up faint energy signatures on the surface of the island."
―PDA, Dialogue

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 was the rendezvous point for survivors of the Aurora. However, only two made it: Second Officer Keen, and CTO Yu. Keen left behind a signal for the rendezvous point at Lifepod 19.


The Floating Island is fully explorable, and boasts a grand variety of colorful, decorative terrestrial, non-hazardous 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 Precursor Teleporter can be found inside a cave on the Floating Island, its master is located within a cave on the Mountain Island.

Lithium crystals, along with salt deposits can be found scattered across the Island.

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).
