The White Shoals is a region in the Crystal Isles DLC.


The White Shoals is a great place to set up base, as it isn't very dangerous, and the worst possible threat are dilophosaurus and the occasional Spinosaurus. There are several good base locations here, with abundant water sources and lots of metal nodes on the higher areas. It is a bit hot and sometimes gets foggy. Which makes it very hard to find your way, along with lots of rain. But besides that this is an amazing area to begin.

From Local Creatures[]


  • Leedsichthys rarely spawns in water that is too shallow for it, preventing it from moving. You can harvest fish meat from them without killing them.
  • Tusoteuthises will also rarely spawn on beaches where they can be easily killed and harvested.
  • Unicorns only spawn in the Southwestern most portion of The White Shoals.
  • The northern part of the shoals is swampy and southern part is beach with unicorns, wyverns and even party dodos
  • There are Rare Flowers scattered in most every green area on these islands
  • You will get SO MUCH SALT from breaking rocks here. So. Much.
