The Isle of Wrath is a region off of the coast of Wales, and a part of the Welsh Triangle. It is the main location in "Tide of Terror" of Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus.

It was a heavily guarded fortress that served as Sir Raleigh's main base of operations. It was a resting place for several ships that fell victim of Raleigh's storm machine, which caused bad weather, and thus, made said ships crash against the rocks and sink, allowing Raleigh to loot them for treasure. The storm machine was where the frog resided.

The Isle of Wrath has a somewhat lush environment. Trees and thorns make up most of the area. Other features here include steep cliffs; some even have waterfalls which flow very far down into the sea. Out at sea, one can see lots of ship wrecks and other smaller islands that are inaccessible. In the center lies Raleigh's humongous ship, which includes more trees, thorns and plants. Raleigh's storm machine floats just above it.


Sir Raleigh's boatEdit

Sir Raleigh's ship

Sir Raleigh's owned a massive ship, the central piece of the Isle of Wrath, serving as his primary base of operations. Raleigh used it to power his storm machine. The boat has an engine room, a power source room, a wrecked ship collection room and even its own submarine. It also contains his library and his personal quarters. The boat was guarded by both walrus guards and squid guards.

Engine room

The engine room was used for powering Raleigh's storm machine. It was filled with machines that Sly had to sabotage in order to spoil Raleigh's plans. The room was guarded by several walrus guards and was also filled with deadly lava.

Raleigh's personal quarters

Raleigh's personal quarters was where he kept the treasures and jewelry he stole from the wrecked ships and airplanes. It contained some of the best security systems in the whole ship.

Power room

The power room was the hottest place within Raleigh's boat. It provided most of the power needed for the storm machine to create its water hurricane. It was a room filled with furnaces and what seemed to be the main furnace of the ship.


This room was filled with all of Raleigh's books. It was a place of knowledge within Raleigh's boat. However, this room was incredibly dangerous because it was protected by dart weapons disguised as globes, which would execute possible intruders.

Ship graveyard

In this room, Raleigh kept some of the ships his storm machine sank as trophies. The room also contained several wrecked airplanes. The room was guarded by several walrus guards and a couple of squid guards.

Crab gang room

The crab gang room was an underwater room were Raleigh's gang of crabs stashed his sunken treasure. The room also contained the last of Raleigh's treasure keys.

Storm machineEdit

Raleigh's storm machine

The storm machine was the most secured location within Raleigh's ship and served as his main headquarters. It was a massive blimp that created hurricanes, causing unwary ships and airplanes to crash, that way Raleigh and his crew could plunder the debris. It was also here that Raleigh kept his part of the Thievius Raccoonus. It required huge amounts of power to create the water hurricane needed to destroy ships and airplanes, and also required frequent maintenance.

The storm machine can be seen floating above Raleigh's main ship, near the front side. At the top is a large vortex that causes it to storm all around the area. On the front are a bunch of large windows, one of which Sly busted through when he launched himself up there.

The inside of the storm machine is filled with water. There is a ring of floating hexagonal platforms surrounding a higher central platform, which sets up the stage for the boss fight. Just at the front is Raleigh's large chair, stationed between two large fans, one spinning faster than the other.
