Your friend Bess Marvin is kidnapped and the only chance you have to save her is by solving a 300-year-old Bahamian mystery!

Can you, as Nancy Drew, track down the treasure before time runs out?

If your in the blue hole tubes you can press the air tank button on the top of the screen and your air tank will fill up. It only works in the blue hole.

I found the book in the Shark's Cove, but how do do I decode it?

I'm trying to use my metal detector at Shark Cove, but I have a feeling I'm trying to do so too late? I keep going back to shark cove, and it'll let me turn left, but I can't figure out how to get nancy to use the metal detector. I hope I don't have to start the whole game over?!

Thanks for your help!

Okay, I have El Toro's book and I decoded most of it. I also have the little compass looking thing from the chest underwater. I am at the point where I need to use that to decode the rest of the book but none of the words are making sense. Is there something else I need to do?

hcurry9 - 12:40pm Dec 29, 2009 PST(#87 of 138)

How do you decode el Totoro's book? The bird said something about words being somewhere, but I don't get it. How do I it?

xxBeautfiul Disaster: Are you trying to follow the directions left behind by the kidnappers? If so, you do not use the metal detector.

hcurry9: Click on the book and then click on the symbols. The way I did it was by trial and error, I'm not sure if there is an easier way.

If either of you need more help just post another message and I'll help in anyway that I can =]

Where do find a sea urchin (ball) for the monkeys?

roemar - 05:43pm Dec 29, 2009 PST(#90 of 138)

How do you use your diving gear? I'm at the Blue Hole but I can't figure out how to dive.

dramadog64 - 07:15pm Dec 29, 2009 PST(#91 of 138)

roemar: To find the sea urchin use the sail boat and sail south east to find a cluster of rocks that almost form a circle. Go into the middle of that and you should be taken to a view of the inside of the boat. Then click the rope ladder to dive down. I'm pretty sure that's where you'll find it. As for the diving gear, you use it at the spot I mentioned to answer your first question. Hope I helped!

What do you mean by and trial and error?

dramadog64 - 09:02am Dec 30, 2009 PST(#93 of 138)

hcurry9: I plugged in the different letters for the symbols by guessing. I found what appeared to be a 3 letter word so I plugged in "the" to see if that would work. 1 letter words can only be "I" or "a" so I plugged in what I thought they were to see if that would work. I just used intelligent guesses, lol

hcurry9 - 11:16am Dec 30, 2009 PST(#94 of 138)

Thanks Dramadog. I'll try it out

dramadog64 - 12:46pm Dec 30, 2009 PST(#95 of 138)

I can't beat the game! I need help!!

SPOILER: I am in the cave with the skeleton and different artifacts. I have already opened the case behind the bull painting. I've checked and it says I just need to unlock the door and get out. But everytime I try, nothing happens. Is my game just stuck? I follow the directions in the journal to figure out what key lock to use and when I try to use the hourglass key I just hear a clicking noise and nothing happens and when I use El Toro's key I have to use a second chance...what is going on?
