Hi, I'm having a hard time finding El Toro's journal. I've done this game before & don't recall having this much trouble. I'm having trouble grasping the concept. I get so far & realize I'm in the wrong spot. I don't understand the "going in the opposite direction " Hope you can help--- very frustrated !! Thanks

Hi, I got the journal. Now I'm trying to get Nancy out of the bat cave. the puzzle is the camel. I've put it together, & realize it is in 9 squares. I can't move the 3x3 squares. I checked the W/T & I have it right but it isn't working. Any thoughts ?
Thanks

Hi Dusty,

Do you mean that the puzzle isn't switching to the slider? (After assembling the pieces, it should then become a slider puzzle.)

If so, try clicking on each piece in turn and shifting it very slightly to "resettle" it.

If it is now the slider puzzle, then clicking on any of the squares next to the blank square should move it into that empty slot.

I moved on to do other things & now realize I didn't look for anything that was outside the cave. Do I have to do it over or what ?? hope not

If memory serves, I don't think that you will need to re-do it. wave

Moving right along, I'm now stuck underwater. I have the medallion, but can't find the boat! I keep going up & down & sideways, stillcan't see it. Any idea where it is ?
Thanks

Be sure that:
- Read El Toro's journal concerning the Caridad.
- you have scuba gear, metal detector and shovel.
- the air tank is full - 100%.
- See brain coral growing just beside the shipwreck.
Swim to bottom right until the shipwreck and then over the middle part of the deck.
Once the metal detector reads full bar, right click and automatically use the shovel.
See the chest with the insignia and name Caridad.

Sorry MaG, I meant at the reef. Where the octopus was. I did the puzzle & am trying to get back up to the boat.

Once you get to the top of the reef - just go right or left until you will see the surface.

Check the video here at around 4:20 in. luck
