Finding the Underground Harbour is straightforward. You can track it on your map or take a more scenic route by boat house traveling to enjoy the waterfall near the cave’s entrance.

Interact with the hidden elevator to descend to the Underground Harbour. The Harbour has boats docked in lines. Head to the Fourth Dock and use Revelio to reveal the Field Page. Combine it with Accio to retrieve the page.
