Initiating the process requires progression through the main story until an NPC named Sato is encountered and the Marinca app is unlocked.

This application enables you to track the quality and count of fish you’ve obtained.

  • After you’ve unlocked Marinca and the feature of Night Diving via a Bancho Sushi cutscene, Sato will appear by your boat on a random night. 
  • Sato will inform you that a unique boss can be found in the ocean during turbulent, stormy nights. On these nights, you can plunge into the depths in search of a vortex that signals the presence of a boss battle.

However, your first couple of boss battles will not be against Klaus. 

  • You’ll face the Truck Hermit Crab and the Mantis Shrimp as your initial and second boss adversaries, respectively. 
  • After overcoming these two bosses, a special quest will be triggered on a random stormy night. 
  • The occurrence of this quest becomes more likely during a shark event.

Once the quest begins, an elderly woman named Clara will approach your boat on her raft. 

  • She informs you that Klaus, the Great White Shark responsible for her husband’s demise, can now be located in the ocean, specifically on stormy nights. 
  • Clara’s request is for you to help locate the shark’s lair and inform her of its whereabouts. However, events will take an unexpected turn.

To engage in the boss battle with Klaus, jump into the ocean during a stormy night and seek a white vortex. This vortex could be found anywhere from the surface to 50 meters deep, but the likelihood of encountering it increases on the far-right side of the Blue Hole

  2. The sound will be directional, helping you locate the vortex more easily. 
  3. The depths at which the vortex is found can vary for different players.
  4. It can be anywhere between 20 to 50 meters down
  5. However, it often appears in the upper right corner of the first zone explored after starting your dive. 
  6. As soon as you enter the vortex, brace yourself to face the massive, angered shark – Klaus.

Remember, the quest to find Klaus only begins on stormy nights. Make sure you’re equipped adequately and prepared for the challenge before you dive into the ocean. Klaus awaits you in the heart of the vortex, ready for combat.
