Blue Lagoon Bustle is a recurring challenge on Survivor.


Contestants must race out into the water and swim through an obstacle course to retrieve puzzle pieces. At the shore, the remaining players from each tribe then solve their tribe's puzzle in the form of a captain's wheel. The first tribe to extend the flag using the wheel wins.


The challenge debuted in Survivor: Blood vs. Water, where despite being held back by Gervase at the swimming portion of the challenge, the Galang tribe managed to win after Tina, Monica, and Laura solved the puzzle quicker than Tadhana.

This challenge reappeared as the first Immunity Challenge in Survivor: Game Changers. Nuku won after Cirie and Zeke solved the puzzle.
