General Tips

Welcome to the Pathfinders: Lost at Sea walkthrough on Gamezebo. Pathfinders: Lost at Sea is a hidden object game created by ERS G-Studio. This walkthrough includes tips and tricks, helpful hints, and a strategy guide to how to complete Pathfinders: Lost at Sea.


  • Due to the fact that there are no clear-cut chapters in this title, the guide will be organized according to finding the Coins the professor leaves behind.
  • Objects listed on the item list in this game are randomized, with the exception of a few. All key items will be circled in this guide: the rest will be left out.
  • Key items will be circled in red, zoom-in locations will be circled in green, and interactive items will be circled in blue for this guide. Coins will be circled in yellow.
  • You may switch between the inventory items and the items list by using the arrows on the cell phone screen, located in the upper left.
  • Hints are unlimited, however after using a hint, you will have to wait for it to recharge.
  • Puzzles may be skipped after an alotted amount of time has passed.
  • When an open hand icon appears instead of your cursor, you may use an inventory item in this area.
  • Some objects may be moved to reveal other objects: this is not the case for every scene, though.
  • Click the “Note” book in the bottom left corner of the screen to review the story thus-far.
