Ocean Fishing is exclusive to fishers which allow them to set sail together on the Endeavor in search of adventure on the high seas. It requires a party of 1 to 24 players and has the time limit of 60 minutes. It was introduced in patch 5.2 of Shadowbringers expansion.


Participating in Ocean Fishing

Every two hours (Earth time), players have a fifteen-minute window to register by speaking with Dryskthota on the Limsa Lominsa Lower Decks (X:3.0 Y:12.7). If you wish to enter as a party, the party leader must be the one to speak with the NPC.

  • Players will be matched together to form a full party when participating solo or with a party of fewer than eight members.
  • The ship will depart even if there are fewer than 24 crew members.

When ocean fishing is available, the NPC will be marked with an "!" icon on the map.

Fishing on the Endeavor

The Endeavor sails to fishing locations such as Costa del Sol and Horizon, allowing you to see the sights of Eorzea as never before. Players will have seven minutes to reel in fish at each location, with various rewards on offer.


While Versatile Lures can be used, there are other types of lure created especially for the Endeavor. To purchase these lures, speak with the Merchant & Mender on the Limsa Lominsa Lower Decks (X:3.2 Y:12.8) or onboard the Endeavor (X:6.1 Y:6.1).
