So you'd like to search for sunken treasure with me. Well, it's going to take a keen eye, a good ear and quick reflexes to grab these treasures from the creatures of the deep. Before you hop aboard the Sea Hunter, let me give you a few navigational pointers.
Obstacles always travel in groups: one in the sky, one on the sea, two in the water and one on the sea floor. Always approach these groups from the sky.

During sky travel, you can hear the bird, helicopter and plane before you see them. (The refueling ship can be heard in any position.) If it's the bird, skip it. If it's the plane, boat or helicopter, disable it before traveling underwater. Then you'll be safe from missiles when you enter the sea.

The seventh group of obstacles is always the mine field. If you survive, there is always an opportunity to refuel before advancing for the next treasure.

Now that you have the knowledge of a fine sea captain, it will only take time and practice to become the finest sea hunter that ever lived. Good luck and happy treasure hunting.
