The Sea Chart is a quest item from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. In the series, Sea Charts are maps used to navigate the seas.


The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker

This extensive chart is a map of the Great Sea, whose many islands are broken off into sections on the map. Whenever Link presents a Fishman with All-Purpose Bait, he will add the map of the current area to the chart.


This is a complete list of all charts in the game, and what they list:


Treasure Charts and Triforce Charts are slightly different from the others:

  • They are not charts of the entire Great Sea, but just portions of it.
  • They are "expendable," as once the location specified on the chart is found they are virtually useless.

The IN-credible Chart and the Ghost Ship Chart are the only two "specialty" charts that change over time. The IN-credible chart updates information on what Triforce Charts have been found and which Triforce shards have been obtained. The Ghost Ship Chart updates based on the current moon phase until the Triforce Chart inside it has been acquired. Most of the "specialty" charts are rewards for puzzles or mini side-quests.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

Ancient Sea Chart

During his and LD-301N Skipper's quest to find the Sandship in order to gain access to Nayru's Flame, Link is informed by the Skipper that his map of the present day Lanayru Sand Sea is inadequate for navigating the sea and tells Link they will need a proper Sea Chart. Fortunately, the Skipper left one in his cabin at Skipper's Retreat and thus Link and the Skipper begin their quest by first obtaining the Sea Chart from the Skipper's Cabin. After an climbing all the way up to the Skipper's Cabin, Link finds the Ancient Sea Chart in a Chest using the Gust Bellows to blow away the sand inside the Skipper's Cabin. The Ancient Sea Chart acts as a map for the sea that existed in the past which Link can travel on thanks to the Skipper's Timeshift Stone-powered Motorboat which turns the present day Sea of Sinksand back into water.

The Ancient Sea Chart is the oldest known Sea Chart in the The Legend of Zelda series as it was apparently created to map the Sea of Lanayru during the lifetime of the Goddess Hylia in an era that predates the events of Skyward Sword, the founding of the Kingdom of Hyrule, and Era of the Great Sea depicted in The Wind Waker.
