You will find the Scaredy-Cat is locked inside a cage below a ship. Soon after trying to save him by unlocking the cage, you will find out that you need an item to unlock it. This item is called Rusty Iron Key.

After locating the cage, swim to your right and get up on the ground. As soon as you get on the ground, you should find a Treasure Hunters camp with a bunch of Treasure Hunters. As you get near them, they will get hostile and start to attack. Finish the Treasure Hunters and you will find a Wooden Box beside their cooking pot.

Investigate the cooking pot to receive the Rusty Iron Key. Take it underwater toward the cage again and press “Open” in front of the locked cage. Now head inside the cage and press Gotcha to rescue the Scaredy-Cat.

If you do not want to engage in battle, you can choose a peaceful method of rescuing the Scaredy-Cat as well. From the cage, swim to your left to find a breakable stone. Break the stone to create a path to swim down. On your right is where you’ll find the Scaredy-Cat.
