- “ If it's hot on Pirate Island Beach, then Pirate's Plunge is the place to reach”
Sometime before the course of the series Peter uncovered Pirate's Plunge as his own pirate oasis to beat the heat on scorching hot days on Never Land. As revealed in the episode "Rock the Croc!" Captain Hook soon learned of Peter's oasis and was determined to find it. But no matter how hard Hook tried to find Pirate's Plunge he was never able to find where it was hidden through his many years on the island. This fueled the greedy captain's desires to claim the location for himself when he overhears Jake and his crew heading to Pirate's Plunge to cool off as he tried to steal there map. It was later revealed in the episode "Captain Hook's Lagoon" Mr. Smee soon learned of Pirate's Plunge location.
