Treasure Charts are blue parchments that reveal the locations of precious sunken treasures around the Great Sea. When you find a Treasure Chart, open it on the Sea Chart map screen. Match the Treasure Chart to the Great Sea islands that you’ve charted on your Sea Chart with the help of the Fishmen to deduce which island the treasure is located near. Sail to that island to begin your search for the treasure! When you arrive at the island, you’ll notice a beam of light shining up from the spot marked by the “X” on the Treasure Chart. Sail to the shaft of light and use the Grappling Hook to salvage the treasure from the Great Sea.

Treasure Chests

There are 46 Treasure Charts hidden in the game, each of which leads you to a chest full of valuable goodies. It could be a hoard of Rupees, a special chart, or even a Piece of Heart! The following table tells you where to find every Treasure Chart, where their treasures are located, and what their treasures are. For more detailed information on how to collect each Treasure Chart, get the official game guide.
