Tide Cave is a shortcut to the Bay world, meaning you don't need to accomplish Morton the Neat. A simple tide level with a few floating platforms here and there. In the second half, there are less platforms except for a few blocks here end there, used as landing points for the Sumo Bros' lightning projectiles. There is also a pipe leading to a Spade Game in the second part. Tide Cave seems to take territory of the Bay world.
