Foaming Lake (あぶくの みずうみ?) is the first main area in the Verdant Waterfront. It is almost entirely underwater in a lake, and is the first area in Hey! Pikmin with water and Blue Pikmin. There are many underwater creatures throughout the level, such as Eye-Stalker Bulbeels which are actually found most frequently here. It is also more spread out than most underwater levels, giving the player and enemies a lot of room to swim in.


This area takes place in a big lake, and serves as an introduction for aquatic environments to the player. Right at the start, the player has to dive into water, in a small puddle. After this, the player dives again in the water, but this time, Olimar meets some aquatic creatures, such as Puckering Blinnows and Eye-Stalker Bulbeels. He also encounters some Blue Pikmin, who make their first appearance in the game. After a long travel through a path infested with the two harmful creatures previously mentioned, the player can get access of the first treasure, the Giga Whistle. The protagonist just has to be careful to not be attacked by the Eye-Stalker Bulbeel, hidden near the entrance of the small path to the treasure. Near it, the player just has to climb some vines to access the second treasure, the Rocket Polish. Some time after this, the player will come across some dirt blocks blocking the way to a door, in addition to a Large Splurchin. On the other side, the player has to swim quickly in a long doorway, because the protagonist is followed by a big Large Splurchin. This long doorway leads to another door. On the other side, Olimar will face three Eye-Stalker Bulbeels and some Puckering Blinnows. This army of creatures protects the last treasure, the Berserker Brush. The end of the level isn't very far away from it.

Four Blue Pikmin appear swimming away from a Puckering Blinnow – they even swim in a loop to try to lose the enemy. They eventually swim into an underwater bush, and the creature loses track of them. A second or two pass, one of the Pikmin pokes its head out, and then goes back in.

One by one, they head for the ledge and dive into the water. The first does a double back-flip, the second does a double front-flip, and the other two go for a simple canon-ball.
