How to unlock the “Boatman’s” Hidden Objective in Genshin Impact

Tsurumi Island has no more inhabitants.

The "Boatman" is a figure that has been hinted at multiple times throughout Tsurumi Island's story. He maneuvers the boat that will ferry people away from the Sea of Fog, into the golden land of dreams. In reality, the "Boatman" is a spirit that sends lost souls to the afterlife.

Completing The Sun-Wheel and Mt. Kanna will prompt the "Boatman" to appear at the foot of Shirikoro Peak. His exact location is marked up in the image below.

After completing all eight, speak with the "Boatman" to trigger a cutscene where all of the island's illusions disappear to the afterworld. It will grant you a Precious Chest and unlock the Achievement Lovely Sights, Further Than the Eye Can See.
