Dave the Diver has one story related achievement that you may accidentally miss. This achievement is the secret achievement Ration Eater.

New Undersea Friend
Completed the Dolphin’s request.You will receive this after saving the pink dolphin a few times. The dolphin visits you randomly while diving during the day (morning/afternoon) in the Blue Hole Shallows.
Made first equipment upgrade.Make your first equipment upgrade through Duff’s Weapon Shop app. The ability to upgrade is unlocked after finishing the quest Kill the Giant Squid.
Discovered the under-sea village.
Entered the Deep Sea for the first time.
Researched 5 new dishes.Use artisan flames that you gain by receiving a good score during the dining service at night. How many stars you get reflects how many flames you will receive. 5 stars = 5 flames and so on.
Enhanced 5 dishes.Your “best taste” score is based off of the dishes you enhance. Typically fish that you catch deeper in the Blue Hole will cost more and have a better base “taste.” To get this achievement I leveled the Tiger Shark sushi dish to get to the Gold Influencer achievement. When the Glacial area opened I leveled the Narwhal sushi dish to get the Diamond Influencer achievement.
Shop’s Lookin’ Good!
Bought First Interior Item.
Reached Bronze Level in Cooksta.Your best taste score is based off of your BEST dishes TASTE. Go to your menu and sort your dishes by taste, choose a higher tier taste to level up and reach other influencer tiers. You only need one dish to have a high best taste score as it is based off of your singular, BEST dish.

The Seaweed is Growing!
Gumo’s seaweed farm opened.First you will need to finish Khanzin’s quests before Gumo will open. When you finish Khazin’s quests, he will give you a Seaweed seed to bring to Gumo to plant.
Duwa’s workshop opened.It’s not required to do all of Duwa’s quests to open the workshop. However, Duwa will give you a quest called “Reopening the Workshop” where he asks you to get him 5 opal ore. Afterwards, Duwa will have another task for you before the workshop will open the next time you visit.
Collected all the blueprints.Important
Gun variants such as a “Shock Grenade Launcher” or a “Fire Sniper Rifle” DO NOT count towards learning a recipe. You will need to pick up a PLAIN RECIPE 3 times to unlock it.
The grenade launcher and the ice gun will probably be the most difficult to find. The ice gun can only be found AFTER you unlock the Glacier Passage. After unlocking the Glacier Passage, I found the gun several times in the ice area as well as the Blue Hole Shallows. The grenade launcher is most likely to spawn in the Blue Hole Depths.
Enhanced gun 3 times.You just need to enhance 3 times. It doesn’t have to be the same gun.
Sea People Historian
Captured all of the Sea People murals.You will be forced to photograph all but ONE mural throughout the entire gameplay. The final mural, once you finish the game, is in the Glacial Passage. Go through the doors to the Glacial Passage in the Sea People Village, once you are there twin down to the level with the giant mirror. Swim left and go through the passage. You will have to redo this puzzle in order to reach the mural.

Raised 5 GYAO!s.To unlock the GYAO’s you need to do the side mission “Stormy Night.” Whirlpools will spawn on stormy nights and upon entering these whirlpools, you will be met with a boss monster. When you defeat the Truck Hermit Crab the GYAO’s should unlock. GYAO’s are very similar to Tamagotchi’s…. they pretty much are a Tamagotchi. You need to raise the GYAO to adulthood, let it die, and do it over again 5 times for this achievement.
Took 10 photos at Photo Spots.I was able to complete this achievement by just questing and exploring. There are many photograph opportunities, the first one being in the Deep Blue Depths. Once you take your first photo, more begin to occur throughout the map. As you progress in the story, more photo spots open in different areas/times of day.
Captured 5 FishMon.Eventually you will get a quest from Udo the photographer to begin capturing Fishmon. He will give you a new Fishmon to catch every Saturday, you have until Sunday night to catch the fish or you will have to wait until the next Saturday to try again.
