Corsair's Cove (海賊船の入り江の巻 Kaizokusen no Irie no Maki) is the second level in Pac-Man World, located on Ghost Island. It is the second level in the Valley of Pirates area and can only be accessed after the player beats Buccaneer Beach, the first level. Corsair's Cove introduces a few new mechanics in the game, like the Elevators, Galaxian Mazes, Friend Keys, and new enemies, such as the Walking Barrel, and Parrots.

This is the first world where the letters "P", "A", "C", "M", "A", and "N" can be collected. Collecting all of these letters in either Corsair's Cove or Crazy Cannonade will allow the player to try the Valley of Pirates Bonus Stage.

During this stage, Pac-Man will encounter Cannonball Targets as well. These are crude, wooden structures resembling pirates that spring up in the background, behind Pac-Man, and unseen cannons in the foreground will shoot at them with cannonballs. These can be avoided by simple dodging, or wearing a Chrome Suit. Pac-Man will also be swimming underwater much more than in Buccaneer Beach, Pac-Man will encounter underwater spikes, that hurt to touch. Again, to avoid these, swim properly, to weave through them, or wear a Chrome Suit to walk across them.



  • This is the only level in the game to have an underwater maze.
  • Walking Barrels are enemies exclusive to Corsair's Cove.
  • This is the only level with a Friend Key in a chest and underwater.
  • In the middle of the level, on the roof with the chest that contains the "M", if Pac-Man butt bounces at the edge of the raised area of that roof while hugging the invisible wall, he can get behind the fence, which is otherwise out-of-bounds. By doing this, Pac-Man can strafe around the wall and make it onto the platform containing the second "A" and Galaxian, and even make it into the Galaxian door without actually opening it by jumping down behind the wall, allowing him to play the maze without needing the Galaxian.
  • This is the only level in the entire game that does not have any proper pits; however, should Pac-Man do the aforementioned out-of-bounds glitch on the roof with the chest containing the "M" and head straight, he will fall off and lose a life.
