Owner(s) Buick Riviera
Leyland Trask's reading "Use this wisely."

The Boat Pass is a collectible item and one of the few ways that Frank Carlson can escape the sinking Titanic in the closing moments of the game. It is a "La Morte" tarot card, depicting death as a skeleton in a long dark cloak. The pass belongs to Buick Riviera, the well known Smoking Room gambler, who offers it as part of a bet in games of blackjack.

In order to win the Boat Pass, Carlson must wager something of value in the game against it, specifically the priceless Rubaiyat or Georgia's authentic diamond necklace. Carlson can only afford to lose the game once.

If obtained, the pass has two uses. It can be given to Colonel Zeitel in exchange for the Painting if Carlson already gave it to the Colonel in exchange for the antidote. Or, he can give it one of the crewmen by the lifeboats to get onto the lifeboat.


  • The Boat Pass can be found on Carlson's desk at the beginning of the game in his London apartment. This implies that it was the means with which he escaped the Titanic in the original timeline.
