Kaz mentions that he may have passed this town in his studies and Nala remembers that the town is overseas. With that in mind, the party seeks the help of the strange old man on the dock. He happened to have a ship they could use. With just a little bit of repairwork, the party was out on the open sea, regardless of the strange old man's warning to "stay away from that water".
Partway to Aludra, the ship gets ambushed by sea creatures. Gathering their power, the team very quickly finish the battle with little injury. They continue on their way.
