Boat Supplies is a hard difficulty main quest given to the Hero by Mowen in Dead Island.


The Hero must travel back to Moresby to retrieve fuel for Mowen's Boat and a package to bribe for Titus Kabui to gain entrance into the prison.


  • You will fast travel with Mowen on his boat to the docks just outside the pumping station. This is good because you can easily gain access to the car in the pump station this way.
  • Get in the car (after clearing the way of zombies and saying hi to Frank and Antonio) and drive to the warehouse where the side quest Heroes and Villains is located.
  • If you've completed the quest already, there'll be some zombies milling about interior; otherwise, you'll just get shot at by some bandits.
  • The package is hidden in a red shipping container on the left of the warehouse storage yard. You must ascend a ladder, walk through an open container (killing a Walker there) and open the container, with the package sitting on a shelf near the back of the container.
  • To obtain fuel for the boat, continue to the Moresby Gas Station. Follow the road and run over zombies on the way.
  • The gas station is (mostly) empty of foes bar one Walker that will come alive after pretending to be dead, although approaching the pumps causes two Infected to appear and charge (one spawns behind and to the left of the station's store and the other right in front and outside of the station's property), if playing single player. Once they're killed, there is no other opposition.
  • The fuel cans are already filled with petrol, so all you have to do is pick them up, put them into the bed of the truck and drive back to the boat. Deposit the petrol tanks on the dock, next to the boat, in the glowing outlines.
  • Talk to Mowen to finish the quest and fast travel to the Resort using the helm.


  • Two metal chests are found inside the container that you retrieve Mowen's package from.
  • A metal chest can be found inside the gas station building.
  • ID Card #35 is found on the main counter inside the gas station.
  • Two vending machines are found inside the station building if you need health quickly.
  • A workbench is under a covered section to the left of the gas station building if you need to repair your weapons.
  • Use the truck at the Pump Station near the starting point. Drive carefully until you reach the first location. After getting your objective there, drive to the gas station. Load the fuel in the truck. Instead of following your mini-map, just drive back to the boat.
    • If for some reason you don't use the car at the pump station, one is located at the gas station itself.
  • Complete the Heroes and Villains quest before this one is accepted. That way the neighboring warehouse full of food will be open as well as free of enemies.
  • It was easy to get to the gas station from Simon's Hub/the Warehouse. The only issue was a single Ram that sometimes spawns and sometimes doesn't. But there are numerous Propane Tanks along the way so by being prepared it was easily killed. The Picture of Bliss quest is also along the way.
  • When you arrive back in Moresby, you can complete any unfinished quests there, in addition to this one.
  • If you look on the shelf where the package is, you can see a few packets of cigars, hinting to what's in the package.
  • Driving through Moresby is difficult because it is very cluttered with other vehicles and zombies. The risk of getting your truck stuck is high, so be careful.


  • Even once you get into the truck, a route back to the boat on the minimap may fail to appear. If this happens, use a map pin to mark the boat (all the way on the left side of the map) as a waypoint to force a route on your minimap.
  • Upon return to the boat after collecting Mowen's package and two gas cans, Jin will possibly have disappeared from the map (she is sitting on one of the boat's benches at the beginning of the quest), and with her the possibility to access her storage service until loading the next map.
