If Stage 4 is the Harbor, then Stage 5 is the Sea. Ride cyber jet skis to attack coastal areas and stop the landing of aliens.
~ Translation of the official description

Ocean is the fifth stage in Contra 4.


Time to ride the waves! After their last epic battle, our heroes race toward the docks and hitch a ride on one of the enemy's vehicles! As they race toward their next stop, the heroes are ambushed by a horde of deadly space sea creatures. Don't think the alien army is going to forget about you that easily! They are in quick pursuit and ready to make sure you face a watery grave. Once they are all taken care of, it's time to fry the big fish on the menu!

  • This stage bears a resemblance to the Highway Stage from Contra III: The Alien Wars.
  • Contra 4 Ocean Challenge Mode Freeze
    If "moon jump" cheats are used in this stage to hover high and long enough offscreen, the bike will explode, causing the riding hero to land inside the water. There's no death zone programmed in this stage, so the player will remain on the ground inside the water, leaving them unable to clear the stage, as the bike is needed to reach offscreen.
    • If this same trick is used in Challenge Mode, the game will freeze. This bug is likely triggered due to this trick not having been coded into the game, as the player isn't intended to exit the vehicle in this stage at all (even though the bike still retains its coding from the City stage).
