The Cave of Tides, also known as Water Cave, is a location in Final Fantasy III found in a southeastern island on the Overworld. It houses the Water Crystal. After defeating the Kraken here, the dark flood covering the Surface World subsides, revealing three continents and resuming the flow of time.
Upon reaching the crystal room Aria restores the Water Crystal, but Kraken ambushes the Warriors of the Light. Aria is mortally wounded when blocking an arrow meant for Luneth. Enraged, the warriors defeat Kraken, and after Aria's last words, the Water Crystal blesses the warriors with its power.
