Current Capers is the sixth level of the world Sea Breeze Cove, as well as the thirty-fourth level overall in the game Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. It is preceded by Sea Stack Attack and followed by Fugu Face-Off.



The Kongs must go across three platforms with the middle having a Papa Painguin waiting for them. They must the dunk themselves into the water with a couple enemies and proceed into the first chamber.

They must then use the their spin attack to move a sprocket that gets rid of the Sea Urchins blocking the way out.

After that, there is a pathway with many more urchins and a three more sprockets. After this section, there are tendrils and Finleys and a couple of Bananas. They must then go upwards to land while avoiding clusters of urchins.

Upon getting back on land a Tuff Tuck can be spotted across a gap Bananas on top and with urchin clusters in it. There will also be a Pointy Tuck and Papa Painguin across another gap, with a treasure chest as well. A Kong Barrel is found afterwards, along with a Barrel Cannon which shoots the Kongs into the abyss.

They are then shot into another chamber full of fast, numerous giant urchins that they must avoid, with the areas also having crevices to hide in, Bananas, and Hearts, with some of the two collectibles being in bubbles.

After this chamber is another pathway with urchins and bubbled Bananas, with a sprocket that the Kongs must turn to lower the area. They must do this three times to enter the next area. There is then a checkpoint with a treasure chest after it.

After this is another pathway with tendrils and Bananas.

After this area is a Barrel Cannon the shoots them into an area full of saw blades that start to fall from the ceiling. A giant blade then drops onto the floor and breaks it, with Kongs being forced down deeper.

The Slot Machine Barrel is in this area with multiple urchins swirling around it, along with Coins.
