Start off by heading to the Central Camp, where you can find the first ice shard which contains the Captain. You can talk to it, but you cannot break it out of the ice shard just yet. Go back on your boat and head to J-4, where you will find a dredging spot that has an Ice Axe. Use this axe to break the shard and free the soul of the captain. This will also show a huge creature closing one of its eyes. You will also receive a Frozen Heart in return.

Next, head to the Eastern Terminus, but take a detour over at K-4 to find another Ice Axe. You will also find a Rock Slab nearby where you can slot in the Frozen Heart to get a special fishing equipment later on. Go to the ice chard and release the spirit of the Boatswain.

Finally, go to the Southern Locus, where you will find the huge monster encased in ice. You will also find the Ice Axe nearby, as well as the ice shard containing the First Officer. After freeing its soul, the huge monster will freeze up completely, and its horn will shatter, dropping a piece of it into the water. You can dredge it out to get the Aurous Anchor, which you can drop from your ship to create a two-way portal to Blackstone Isle.
