"Scuba Diving in Quill Lake" Has Tons Of Hidden Treasures
Scuba Diving in Quill Lake has been around on Roblox in some iteration or another since 2010, but it has received over 42 million visitors in the past three years. This game, created by Roblox developer ColonelGraff, is a popular treasure hunting game where you explore Quill Lake, a vast and varied environment with areas like a pirate graveyard, intricate cave systems, and an underwater volcano. 100 artifacts are hidden throughout the map, waiting to be found and pawned for tons of coins. The denizens of Quill Lake have also lost some treasures of their own, and they will reward you if you find them. This guide will help you learn how to explore every inch of the map and find all of the artifacts and secrets in the game.
Buying and Selling
There are two places in Quill Lake to buy upgrades to your scuba equipment. The first shop is Steve's Scuba Gear, which sells these basic items:
- Freedive Training for 50 coins - allows you to hold your breath for twice as long
- Scuba Gear for 140 coins - allows you to use the scuba mask and air tank to supplement your breath and allows you to dive deeper
- Advanced Suit for 60 coins - makes you swim faster
- Flashlight for 20 coins - lights up dark caves
- Geolocator for 25 coins - allows you to see your coordinates
- Life Jacket for 40 coins - lets you resurface quickly
- Dive Weight for 30 coins - helps you sink to the bottom quickly
Merlin's Shack is hidden on the far west side of the map, at (-1170, 11, -378). He sells these special suits that unlock areas while you are wearing them:
- Pirate Disguise for 120 coins - unlocks the Pirate's Cove
- Hazmat Suit for 170 coins - unlocks the toxic area and sewers
- Heat Suit for 220 coins - unlocks the underwater volcano
- Ice Suit for 320 coins - unlocks the ice caverns
Merlin can also build you a power suit for 500 coins if you find all four parts to it (more on that later). Both Merlin's Shack and Steve's Scuba Gear also have places to refill your health and air tank for a small fee.
To sell things, go to the Pawn Shop, a white building on the beach with a green roof. The Pawn Shop also features several upgrades for your character:
- Shack fast travel for 20 coins
- Beach fast travel for 10 coins
- Treasure chest keys for 30 coins - allows you to open the many chests you will find on the lake floor
- Backpack upgrade 1 for 25 coins- allows you to carry 3 more items from a single dive
- Backpack upgrade 2 for 50 coins - allows you to carry another 3 items on one trip
If you would like to buy a boat to travel faster across the lake, talk to Cleo, the blonde girl on the dock. She sells access to boats for 50 coins, and then you can spawn a boat by the dock whenever you like by clicking on one of the purple buttons on the dock.
Here is a list of all artifacts, organized by area, and then alphabetically. In total there are 100 artifacts for you to find, 94 of them being unrelated to quests while 6 of these are. I recommend that you buy the geolocator first, since this guide gives the coordinates for each piece of treasure. To pick up an artifact on the lake floor, press E.
The Flats is the first area that you will have access to. It is a relatively flat, shallow area by the docks and to the right from the beach, and spans from the sandy beach to the muddy area further out. There are 16 artifacts in this zone.

You will not survive the freezing temperatures here without the Ice Suit, so buy it from Merlin's Shack for 320 coins before you go.

There are currently 12 quests in Scuba Diving at Quill Lake. Here is where to pick up each quest, what you need to find, and what you get for completing the quest:
The first quest you find will probably be the girl on the beach, Kat, who has lost her family heirloom, the Celtic Necklace. This can be found in the muddy part of the Flats area, at 512, -93, 221. Your reward when you return the necklace is 30 coins.
Egg of Cthulhu
Another quest is given at the Ancient Tower on the path behind the beach where you start. Howard Phillips needs you to retrieve the egg of Cthulhu from the temple in the tower's basement. You will need to get two keys from two different chambers. The red side has 2 puzzles for you to solve, a memory matching game and a puzzle with 5 lights and 4 light switches where you need to pull them in the correct order to light them up. To solve the light puzzle, this is the pattern: 1st one and 3rd one face away from you, 2nd and 4th one face towards you. The blue chamber is an obby followed by a disappearing path. Once you have both keys, place them on the pedestals in the main chamber to unlock the egg. Howard will reward you with 50 coins.
Cthulhu himself is tucked away in a sunken boat's cargo hold, and he also needs one of his eggs. To find the radioactive egg for Cthulhu in the Toxic Wasteland, head to the sewers behind the boat and enter the main tunnel. Go straight, and then left to enter another room. Go straight through the tunnel behind it, straight again, then right, then left. You will enter another room, and the egg will be sitting in a tunnel to your left. Cthulhu will give you 100 coins for the egg.
One of the pirates in Pirate's Cove will open up his cabin door and share his treasure if you help him find his hat. To find the hat, enter the sewers in the Toxic Wasteland. From the first tunnel, head right, and then left, and the hat will be on the ground in this big chamber. It's turned green from the radioactive waste, but he doesn't mind! As a reward, he'll open up his cabin door and allow you to loot his treasure.
A fish in the toxic wasteland needs you to bring back his son, who is lost in the sewers. To find him, enter the sewers, then make a left at the first chamber, and continue through. Next, make 3 consecutive rights at the next pathway, and you should find the green fish. Return him to his dad to get the EKoSS headphones as a reward.
Lumber Jack needs your help finding a sapphire crystal in the Old Mine. To complete this quest, it helps to have a flashlight in the dark cave. Enter the mine and ignore the two tunnels to the left, following the trail of the rails. Once you get to the large chamber, you can't miss that blue glow. Collect the crystal and return to Lumber Jack to receive a note with the locations of several valuable items.
A zombie pirate wants you to find proof that Bronzebeard has a teddy bear. You'll find Bronzebeard standing in front of his house inside Pirate's Cove, beside the ship. Swim around the back of his house to the hole in the wall and you'll find the teddy bear beside his bed. Return your evidence to the zombie pirate and he'll give you 50 coins.
Miguel on the beach has a treasure map to a legendary guitar. To start looking for it, head to -621, -284, -336 and look behind the pirate ship for a cave with a chest. There is another note from a pirate who already claimed it, but maybe you can work out a deal. Talk to the legendary adventurer to the left of the Pirate's Cove entrance. She will give you the guitar if you can find her missing partner in the caves. Follow the lanterns to find the skeletal pirate by some blue crystals. Once you come out, the adventurer will give you the guitar, which is an item that you can equip to play.
The Three Orbs
Penguin Pip will give you the quest to enter the temple; he is in a small cave to the right side of the Ice Caves as you enter. To enter the temple, you'll need three orbs: a Green Orb, a Blue Orb, and a Red Orb. These can be found by looking at the top of the caves for green, blue, and red diamonds. Follow each cave to the end to find the orbs, and then place them into their spots.
Ice Golem Head
There is an ice golem at the entrance to the Ice Caves who is missing his head. The golem's head is at -823, -258, -1029. As a reward for bringing it back, you get 60 coins.
Once you have access to the Ice Temple, Penguin Pete has a quest for you. He is searching for a missing penguin artifact. To find it, you will have to go through the maze to -593, -331, -1952. This may be hard because there are a lot of dangerous bubbles and you can run out of air if you aren't quick. Once you find it, return to Penguin Pete for 70 coins.
On top of the ice temple in an alcove, you'll find a note prompting you to find the key to a hidden treasure vault inside the temple. The key is at -559, -264, -2303. The vault that the key opens is over in the Forbidden Temple area, at -605, -274, -10. Have fun!
The power suit is the best equipment in the game, but it has to be crafted, and it will cost you an additional 500 coins to be put together. A note can be found in the attic of Merlin's Shack that gives the locations of each part; you can also look at the table below to find all of the parts. After you have all parts, talk to Merlin and he'll build you the power suit. You can pick it up after 5 minutes. Once you have it, the power suit will give you an extra air tank, even if you aren't wearing it.
