Where to Find Marlin in Dave the Diver

Although a lot is randomized each time you dive, the safest depth to search for Marlins is between 20m and 50m. Those are shallow depths, where they will most likely spawn near other Tuna variants. To be able to catch a Marlin, you should bring an upgraded Harpoon Gun. Be cautious, since this type is extremely quick and can do significant damage. You can always use ordinary guns to catch Marlins, but you risk losing some meat from the fish.

Keep an eye out for a Marlin-themed event called “Marlin Party” in the game where this type of fish will spawn more frequently, For first-time catchers, you may not be able to find any Marlins until this event unlocks for you. Once you finally catch a Marlin, you can use it in many recipes or sell it if you need credits, but this rare fish is best for cooking since it comes with a lot of meat!

Diver Dave is currently available only for PC via Steam, but hopefully, this super-fun game will find its way to other platforms sooner than later.
