I can't seem to find anything around the sunken ship to the SE of the island! Am I looking for an iron chest? I wonder if I can refill my dive tank because I get the feeling I'm going to need it more than once!

Walk to the left on the sandy area see 4 coconut trees that form a big " W "

Then S 3 paces , then w 3 n 9, w 9, n 2, w 3, s 15, w 4, s 6, e 12, n 5, e 6, s 4, e 8, then n 2 ( after east 8 there should be 2 coconut trees ) or cheat and there are 4 sets of 2 coconut trees and N2 from one of them is the cache click and dig in the space in front of Drew inside the box is the coded the journal.

I wish the writers in ND would get rid of or at least place a skip stupid cheesy arcade type dumb games of killing bugs, playing with stupid monkeys, these random chance stupid games are painful on laptop mouses and cursor games and are better designed for a joystick application, which cannot be activated on point and click games. These games are at best tedious and most of the time frustrating and simply ruin the adventure, supposed to be knowledge and skills game , time allowances are too short and one ends up saving the game numerous times at various points just to beat the stupid arcade games ,, how 3 tries and give me the stupid object so I can move on.. Getting the stupid compass was about 35 tries on a bumpy flight using a laptop mouse with the settings set at max and feathered touch to absolute lightest.. this part is no longer fun it is downright tedious and at best painful.. Sometimes I wonder why I buy Nancy drew because , I sure know there will be one or 2 or several stupid arcade games in these so called adventure and supposed to make the brain work games.. Gets real tedious finding sheep, killing bugs, etc, it is way more intriguing to find the trip objects and the clues and follow the story line..So my personal message to the writers is simply grow up get rid of the arcade games and concentrate on the original books by Mckeon or however she spelled her name.. Same with the hardy boys FW Dixon would not have dreamed of frank and Joe tossing plates at monkeys,, maybe a timed undo ropes or something or mazes timed but be fair and do not make it so tedious.. These are supposed to be entertainment not lessons in futility and frustration. I am sure many people just give up and never finish the games. sad they are very well done , most of them and some are quite difficult but take the stupid timed arcade games out!!!!!

Well now I played with monkeys, filled the dive tank, got the metal detector and have searched high and low for the treasure. The metal detector goes crazy but I can't get Nancy to dig! Any help would be much appreciated!

To continue, personally I think the whole game glichey, I had to go back and forth about 50 times to get johnny to respond to a metal detector,, played those retarded tedious monkeys a zillion tiresome times ,, Restarted and loaded a new game 5 times, the dive part took about 20 tries to finally get the stupid cow to dig, but found the stupid egg over by the sharks, sailed around the island about fifty times to get the last bottle, filled the air tanks about 50 times to finally get the silly cow to dig,, back and forth back and forth , re try retry , re try ,, go over and over and over the same ground trying to get the game to trip, Talked to that stupid bird a dozen times to get hints all to no avail,, talk to johnny, go to reef, talk to johnny, go to reef,, drive the stupid cart all over the place for endless times to get the game to trip.. These are not games of fun, they become tedious,, stupid arcade games.. Like I said before the idiot writers should get rid of these stupid arcade games and concentrate on puzzles and maybe some sort of detective thinking.. The trips in this game suck, they are tedious, tiring and really not fun at all.. It was a joy to finish the stupid thing and after 20 of these odd ND games ,, each one hoping the writers would listen to the people who buy them as games sites all over the place as well as critics really criticize these arcade games in Nancy Drew games..I will say one thing,, this is officially the last ND game I buy,, they do not get better they get more tedious, not to mention frustrating,, chasing snowmobiles for hours, catching sheep over and over and over, bouncing across rocks in caves, going round and round on a stupid merrygo round to get a dumb ring... These are tedious... and not designed for mouse pads, maybe joysticks but these are not adaptable to these games..Very tired of Nancy drew games

I have decided I'm not able to use the directional compass when sailing but I have managed to adapt. Glad I accidently ran into dove island (ran into it several times before but thought I had just gone back to resort island, the palm trees and different colored sand are the only clue I've found to tell them apart.)

I'm stuck trying to find the conch shell and the Octopus cave, I've read the walkthrough but when I dive in and go left I never Immediately "see" a conch shell. Any help would be appreciated.

You have to be inside the cave of bats at 16kHz. For that to work you have to decipher the text in the journal (gargantuan ears) and read the bat info in the display.
