Sea Charts,[1][2][name references needed](TWW | PH (Himekawa)) also known as Sea Maps,[name references needed](HWL) are recurring Items in The Legend of Zelda series.

Location and Uses

The Wind Waker

The Sea Chart is split up into 7-by-7 sections in The Wind Waker. When Link first receives the Chart, it has only Windfall and Outset Island and the Forsaken Fortress mapped on it. After completing Dragon Roost Cavern, the Fishman will offer to fill in the remaining sectors of the chart, as well as reveal select information related to them, in exchange for a feeding of All-Purpose Bait.

The Sea Chart is updated further as Link advances in his quest, such as by marking the locations of sunken treasure that have been salvaged and showing the whereabouts of the Ghost Ship. To better aid Link, the King of Red Lions will also mark the Chart with the location of his current objective.[1]

Phantom Hourglass

In Phantom Hourglass, the Sea Chart is divided in four Charts that can be found in the Temple of the Ocean King. Most Islands are already displayed on the Chart upon obtaining it. However, there are uncharted Islands which only appear upon visiting them. To navigate the World of the Ocean King, Link must draw the desired trajectory of the SS Linebeck on the Sea Chart.

Other Appearances

Phantom Hourglass (Himekawa)

Link finds the Sea Chart while searching for treasure in the Temple of the Ocean King.[2] Oshus tells Link that the Chart marks the temples where the monsters lurk.[3] Ciela says it will guide them on their journey.[4] Linebeck studies the Sea Chart while Link and Ciela do chores on his ship. He cannot read it and does not see the temples Oshus spoke about.[5] Link rubs the paper to clean it and discovers a symbol.[6] Linebeck snatches the Sea Chart away and says he was just about to try that.[7] After visiting the Isle of Ember, Link points to the Sea Chart and says the fortune-teller told them a clue to the Ghost Ship was in the northwestern sea.[8] When a young girl is taken by Crayk, Link locates the Isle of Gust and Molida Island on the Sea Chart and waves it angrily at Linebeck when he refuses to help.[9]
