Below we will walk through an in depth explanation of some of the key components of the game.
What Captain doesn't love Gold! Earning Gold coins is the main objective of the game, and there are multiple ways to go about it. Most of the Gold you'll earn will be from selling your catches at the Market. Tap or automate your Fishing Boats to take to the waters and catch some fish!
You can also earn Gold Coins from picking up Floating Chests and Bottles. These will occasionally drift through the water between the Boats, o be on the lookout!
If your Fishing Boats and Dockhands are automated with their very own Captains [see below] you will also receive Gold Coins while you are not playing the game. The next time you log in your idle profits will appear on the main game screen as shown below.
Each station in the game, whether it be a Fishing Boat or Dockhand, can be automated by assigning a Captain to manage the work for you. Before your can automate a station, you first must collect the Captain Cards required. Each Captain will perform a specific task. For example: Raymond will Captain the Slammin' Salmon Fishing Boat, Kidd will Captain the Market Truck, and Hannah will Captain the Fish Collection from the Dock.
To view your list of Captains, as well as Fishing Boats, simply tap the Captains Hat or Fishing Boat icons at the bottom of the game screen. These icons will bring up the menus shown below.
Thar Be Upgrades!
In addition to viewing your Captains and Fishing Boats, you will also be able to see which are available for an upgrade! To upgrade a Captain of Fishing Boat, you must collect the required amount of specified cards, as well as have the necessary amount of Pearls available. Each Card will explain what the upgrade will give you upon completion, as shown below. Upgrades may be required for completing Goals, which will be explained soon!
Boosts & Time Skips
There are different ways to multiply your profits in the game as well! One of them is to watch videos on the Maritime TV. Each video you watch will grant you a boost to your profits for the next 4 hours.
You can also purchase Time Skips from the Fishing Store using Gems. These will fast-forward the clock to give you the total profits you would have earned in the specified amount of time listed on the Skip.
Milestones & Locations
Each location you fish in will also set Goals for you to complete. For each Goal you complete, you will earn another Milestone added to your Progress Bar. Once the Progress Bar is full, you will unlock the next location. You can move to the next location any time you wish, however you cannot go back to a previously fished. Those waters are dry!
Completing your current location will also win you some fine treasure!
Daily Rewards are fun, free gifts for you to collect! These will appear for collection every 24 hours after the last time you collected. Below you will see a list of past Daily Rewards collected, and the Reward waiting for you will be at the bottom. Don't forget to collect them!
