This page offers a guide on grabbing the Shine Sprite in Episode 3 of Noki Bay. This area is accessed by looking into the sun near the Shine Gate once you’ve collected 20 Shines back in Delfino Plaza.

Collecting the Red Coins

Episode 3 is a refreshing change from all the cliff scaling you’ve been doing so far and takes place entirely underwater. From the get go, you’ll be granted a diving suit that will allow you to stay underwater longer than before however should your Life start draining too much, look for Coins to replenish it.

Begin by grabbing the 1st Red coin in front of you and then drop below this to find an easy 2nd Red coin. Drop down towards the bottom of the bottle now to find the 3rd Red coin and then make your way across the sand where an arrow sign is to pocket the 4th Red coin. Make your way over to the blocks in the center now to easily spot and snag the 5th Red coin following this.

(1 of 8) Red Coin #1 is directly in front of where you start

Look behind this set of blocks to find the 6th Red coin on a solitary block and then return to the arrow sign and approach it to find yourself launched to the top of the bottle where you’ll collect the 7th Red coin along the way. From here, head further up and long the edge of the bottle to find the 8th and final Red coin causing the Shine to appear on the blocks at the bottom.
