If you’re not well versed in this kind of challenge, you might get stuck. No worries, though – we’re going to help by showing you the Sea of Thieves Shark Bait Cove riddle solution & location in this here guide.
Where to find Shark Bait Cove?
The first sentence of the riddle says: To Shark Bait Coive you may be bound, in search of fortune in the ground. Shark Bait Cove is an archipelago in quadrant I-24. Set your vessel’s course and get there.
Find the campfire at the remains of the fishing camp on the South West shores
Once you reach the archipelago, head to the island in the southwestern part of the outer ring. Once you’re there, go to the outer shore (the one looking towards the ocean) and look for a stone wall. There should be a painting on it, of a stick figure fishing. There’s a ruined boat nearby, with a campfire next to it, still burning. Stand next to the fire and follow the rest of the directions – seven paces west-by-north west.
Do some digging and you’ll find the chest soon enough (it’s close to the small rock in the sand). You don’t actually have to drink grog in order to get the treasure, mind. Just use your shovel to uncover the chest, grab it and take it to the nearest outpost. Talk to the vendor from the faction that gave you the voyage and sell the chest for a pretty penny.
