Under the Sea Expo: The Lost Pearls of Hanalei Hunt

Swimming to the Ship

Alina’s little sister Mishell thinks she’s been spending too much time in the Mermaid Palace and not enough time swimming in the sea where they live. To lure her out of the palace, she’s taken Alina’s favorite pearl necklace and hidden the pearls in some of her favorite underwater spots! Alina is busy preparing for a dance and she needs that necklace. Will you help her get it back?

The Hunt begins at the beginning; click it and you'll get a hint to the first store to find a pearl in. Each pearl gives you a hint to the next stop along the route, and you have to go in order - no skipping around! Each pearl also gives you the prize form the store, which means by the time you're finished, you'll have an amazing assortment of gifts and prizes. Each pearl also comes with a note from Mishell, explaining what she's doing and why - the first note is different, but the rest are the same.

Some stores have the pearl right out in the open, and others have tucked it behind things within their little stores, but it's never outside of their stores - so don't despair! As for finding the stores - which was my bugbear for the first half of the hunt - the directories all over list every store, and if you touch the store logo you get a teleport to the store itself.


You've been spending too much time staring into your mirror, sister, but I'm going to help you love our sea again!

Hunt Prizes 1: KittyCatS
The Lost Pearls of Hanalei: How did these KITTYCATS get under the water? I though cats didn't like to swim, but I guess I was wrong!

Hunt Prizes 2: Fantasy Flora
Yay! You found another pearl! The next pearl will be even harder to find because I want to you enjoy the sea!
Find exotic plants for your sea garden at FANTASY FLORA.

Hunt Prizes 3: Tarnished
There are some beautiful fins at TARNISHED! Just watch out for the sea witch!

Hunt Prizes 4: FantaSea
I saw some beautiful furniture for the palace at LIVING THE FANTASEA!

Hunt Prizes 5: House of Rain and Beautiful Freak
If you're looking for a unique new look, try HOUSE OF RAIN and BEAUTIFUL FREAK. They have some great mer makeups and more!

Hunt Prizes 6: Bands of Cypher
Something mystical is under the sea at BANDS OF CYPHER. Where did these creatures come from?

Hunt Prizes 7: Amaretto breedables
Horses aren't usually something you find in the sea, but the horses at AMARETTO BREEDABLES have adapted to the area and this is one of my favorite places to visit. (Very difficult to find, but it is there, I promise.)

Hunt Prizes 8: Iceania Beedables
The ocean is teeming with sea life over near OCEANIA BREEDABLES. While you're there, why not swim with the sharks?

Hunt Prizes 9:
Find your fins at MER-CHANDISE COVE!

Hunt Prizes 10: Meadoworks
There are amazing gardens and schools of fish at MEADOWWORKS! You should visit them!

Hunt Prizes 11: NDiver
Not everyone under the sea is a mermaid! NDIVER is where humans that love the sea come - since they need special equipment to breathe down here.

Hunt Prizes 12: Boudoir
A ship sunk long ago over BOUDOIR, and ever since then you can find the most eerily beautiful fashions and hair there. I hid a pearl there because I think you'll love their style!

Hunt Prizes 13:
If you're looking for some beautiful plants for the palace, try AQUATICS! They have pretty decor!

Hunt Prizes 14: The Muses
If you are looking for something amazing and fantastical to wear to the dance, try THE MUSES!

Hunt Prizes 15: Unrepentant
If you want to try your hand at mermaid crafts, UNREPENTANT has some nice materials!

No-Copy, Eaten by Second Life - the title said it was a 20 M Orca, so it sounds cool.
If you'd like to study the creatures that live here - and in oceans far away - check out THE CETELOGICAL MUSEUM. It's amazing!

Hunt Prizes 17:
The sea gardens have gotten a lot more vibrant lately since BOTANICAL joined the ocean fun! You should see their sea grasses - they're perfect for running your fin through!

Hunt Prizes 18: Lunasea
If your fin could use an update, try LUNASEA!

Hunt Prizes 23: Two Moon Paradise
Explore more of the mer world with TWO MOON PARADISE.

Some mystical plants of the deep sea are at CERRIDWEN'S CAULDRON. They're beautiful, but watch out for those clams - they can be tempermental!
