On Isle Delfeno, on the docks (not the one with the boathouse) you will see a plot of land with water in between you and it. After going into Banico Hills for the first time, a building will open its doors, go in, and talk to the person inside he will want you to bash all of the boxes, if you compete this task in time, he will give you a shine sprite. You may do so twice, though each time is harder than the last.

GameCube | Submitted by Fahad SharwaniTotal Number of Shine Sprites
Ok. A lot of people are wondering how many Shine Sprites there are in the game. Well there are a total of 120 Shine Sprites. The shines break down as follows: Each of the seven main levels has eight shines, two hidden shines, and one 100 Gold Coin Shine. That's 77 Shine Sprites. Delfino Plaza has 16, the Airport has 2 plus the 100 Gold Coin Shine, and Mount Corona(the last level) has 1. That's a total of 96 Shine Sprites. Now, each main level has 30 blue coins, while the Airport has one, the Plaza has 19, and Mount Corona has 10. That is a total number of 240 Blue Coins. Cash them in the Racoon Hut in town to bring the total up to 120 Shine Sprites.

GameCube | Submitted by Michael ToffCorona Mountain
To get to Corona Mountain, you have to beat the first 7 levels in each world. After doing so, the town will be flooded, and you have to chase shadow Mario into the mountain. Basically, you have to use the hover nozzle to douse the fire platforms and timing to avoid the spikes. You also have to be careful because the fire and spikes do 3 damage and the lava kills you. The boat is hard, but you can get through.
GameCube | Submitted by MairiFive Free Shines
Shine 1-Walk over to the lighthouse (Delfino Plaza),and stand on the sand next to it.
Spray water a lot on the sand in different places, until you come across what looks like a flat shine. Ground pound it and a shine will appear on the towers in the sea.
Shine 2-When you get 25 shines, you will chase evil mario. When he hands over the turbo booster, go back to where you first saw him.In a nearby building you will see a shine in a room. Face the door, and do a turbo-run into it. Jump, and walla, you have a shine!
Shine 3-In Delfino Plaza, jump on to the roof anywhere. Walk around for a while and you will see a man sitting down. Talk to him and he will ask for three coins. Give him them, and he will throw you into a tower with a shine.

GameCube | Submitted by MattCorona Mountain
Corona Mountain is extremely hard but not any more. The time you go is when the spikes come up, and the fire you blow out with your hover nozzle. Oh goody we got through that now we deal with the Crashing Titanic. The boat is simple. If you shoot right you'll TURN left and the same thing with the left. If you want to get through this level you'll need a light touch. When I said about the rights and lefts you also need to shoot backward. If you are going to crash in something go to the front and shoot. When you get to the end you'll maybe 6 blue coins. You decide if you want them.

GameCube | Submitted by BogthedoggyTips For Beginners
Some tips that are very helpful include the fact that you should use the hover setting on your water cannon to get across gaps and to explore when high up by jumping off a high object and the hitting the R button. Another tip is when your in the water press the B button to dive. Who knows what treasures lurk in the water's murky depths. Also if you keep blasting away an M on a wall left by the culprit who polluted the island you will get a blue coin. In the first level you will find a blue coin in the river. You'll also find a huge M on the top of the building with the big wheel. Blast it to get a blue coin. Find the huge Ms in the other levels too. Ill keep u informed on more tips!

Watch out for the enemies and the sludge the piranha lant spits out. The sludge will damage you. Also be aware he has a special trick for if u get too close. To regain your life the piranha plant should make some miniature replicas of itself and when you spray them with your water cannon they will drop coins.And your water cannon will refil itself automatically when u run out.Do the sray and pound combinations a few times to gain victory.And if the pirahnna plant should spit out sludge than oint your water cannon down at the sludge and clean it up.

GameCube | Submitted by Paul CarrollTurbo Nozzle Gravity Defiying Jump
You probably won't find this move in any strategy guide or another site and keep in mind it's just for fun.
You can't turn very fast with the turbo nozzle and you can't turn at all while jumping with the turbo nozzle. You can though with this move.
First get the Turbo Nozzle then start using it to go really fast. While your going fast spin jump(rotate control pad then press A) and immediately after that press Y to go into the view mode. While your in view mode going extremely fast you can turn while spinning in the air inside view mode!! That way you can run around Delfino Plaza with the turbo nozzle doing insanly tight turns and even do 180 degree turn while in the air with the turbo nozzle running!
It kinda confusing but if you get it right it's pretty fun to run around with.

Be careful, the water is hot it will burn you and take off 3 damage. you must knock the pool off balance so you drop through the sky by using the rocket nosel and then "ground pound" the targets while dodging bullet bills and steaming hot water.

GameCube | Submitted by Super Mario Sunshine ProGet 100 coins
Getting 100 coins can be a problem. But I'll help you out with where to go and with some advice on what to do.( I've done these before so it should work).
Grab the Rocket Nozzle and follow the line of coins. Don't forget to jump on the enemies.
Episode 3-Coins are very easy to find here. Make sure you destroy the enemies. There's 2 owl like birds flying around the area where there was 2 bee hives. Or it was the area with many palm trees. Squirt the 2 birds with water collecting their coins until they give you a 1-up. Then just keep squirting the bird until it touches the ground or jump on it to get another coin.
Episode 3-Make sure you explore the tunnels and try to jump out through holes whether there's boxes on it or not. You can find valuable coins there. Scour the catwalks and hop on top of bloopers to discover more coins.
Episode 8-Bring watermelons to the stand to get some coins. High above the stand is a wire which you can swing on to nab some more coins (hold up as you jump off of the wire as it's spinning). Cataquacks will give you a coin if you spray them and then jump on them. More coins are under the stands dock. and on the ceiling of the beach house. There's more by riding the swing on the small island.
Episode 2-Spraying the beach will give you some coins but you might want to look more into the flying bullet bills. It's possible to get 999 coins in this area if you're patient. Just keep on spraying those bullet bills. Look for the gold ones. They give you the most coins!
Episode 1 or 4-It'll take awhile but in Episode 1 you can get a 100 coins by spraying the ground (beach, grass, path, etc.) and grabbing the coins just laying around. It takes awhile but I've done it!
In Episode 4 you can take your chances by grabbing as much coins as you can before entering the casino and hope you win enough coins to get the shine before you get the three 7's.
Episode 6-Most of the coins are lined up across the water. Check inside the cliff walls and near the Rocket Nozzle.
Episode 1-You can extinguish the flames on the mushrooms, then pound their caps to uncover some coins. If you pound the nose of the Pianta shaped tree and pound inside the concrete basin you can get some more coins.
In some Episodes it's not possible to get 100 coins. All of this information is very accurate and should be helpful in your hunt!
GameCube | Submitted by BogthedoggyMore Tips
Wanna learn how some of the water cannon functions work? Let me show you. First use the regular pump function to clean up sludge on the walls and ground. Use the hover function to go across large gaps ad hover while you clean the sludge on the ground,its two in one! The rocket function allows you to soar to new heights by making you blast off like a rocket. The other function allows you to quickly gain speed on land and water use this as an escape or to get somewhere quickly. Use these functions in the right ways and maybe you might master them very efficiently!

Bianco hills-To defeat him, spray the water into his mouth when he is about to spit out brown goo at a random place. Do this quickly.
When he's down ground pound him on his stomach. Do this 3 times and you'll win.
He'll be back next time, and when he does, search for his perch. Fill up the balloon creatures with water, adn launch it at him. When you begin the fight, do the same process, but this time, he will fly. Spray him to get him down. When he does, he'll send tornadoes at you. Avoid the attack and defeat him!!!
Ricco harbor- Spray his face until his eyes get red and when he slaps tentacles at you, ground pound his tentacles. Then pull his snout back and snap it. Do this two times and you'll win. He'll return the second time, but do exactly like I had told you. (Look at Super Mario Sunshine strategy Guide for more information.)

Go clean up the area around the the hut with coins go clean up both then when u are done two people will pop out of the electric goop spray them clean then go talk to them they will give you a blue coin each.
GameCube | Submitted by GamesRadarGolden Bird
In Delfino Plaza there is a tiny golden bird by the island with the guy on it. If you're looking at the island from the coast, it will be to the right. Swim over to the island and after that, swim to the right. The bird will be sitting on the water. Don't get too close or it will fly away. Spray it a few times and it will turn into a shine. The shine will go over to one of the islands to the left of the shore. I think the best way is to go into view mode but you can do it any way you like.
GameCube | Submitted by GamesRadarWater slide
In bianco hills, you enter where there are trees and a stream. Run as fast as you can, then when you reach the start of the stream press B (while running) and you will slide very fast to the water. It is fun, but the cheat is to aim for the spurt of water at the start of the "water slide". You will hear a sound and you automatically refill your water pump in a mill-second.
GameCube | Submitted by ZeldaChain chomplets unchained
In planta village (entrance on top of the shine gate, get at it with the rocket nozzle) there is an episode thing called chain chomplets unchained. there are little red dog typed things running around. what you have to do is go to the spring (it is kind of like a small river, just look for it, it isn't hard to find) and wait. when a dog thing comes bye spray its head until it turns black and becomes kind of friendly. then grab its tail and aim it at the spring. stretch back the tail as far as it will go and then release it. the dog thing will shoot into the water and turn white and have his head stuck in the sand at the bottom. be careful of the goop in this level, it burns you!!!

Need another shine sprite but cant find any, well here is another one. First go to the cannon that shoots you to Pinna park (get the rocket nozzle first), then look at the side of the cliff and you will see a line of trees growing out the side, use the rocket nozzle to launch on the trees. Launch from tree to tree until you see a small ledge with a green tube on it, go in to the tube. when inside there will be a grassy field with red coins, this is where they are: First stomp all the enemies & hell all give you a red coin, then spray the guy who's on fire and talk to him, next spray the red bird and it will drop a red coin, then theirs a red coin on 2 platforms, last look for a hole with a small cube shaped watermelon ground pound it and get the red coin.
