"The moment we have been waiting for has arrived, kapitan. One of Mr. Rubio's smuggler boats has been captured by the police. This is our chance to acquire it for ourselves, and use it to approach the island without raising suspicion. It is still on its trailer outside the police station, if we act quickly we can get it before it is taken somewhere more secure."
―One of Pavel's briefings.

Longfin is a prep mission featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the The Cayo Perico Heist update, and a freeroam mission that can be completed at any time while The Cayo Perico Heist strand is active. It is one of six missions within the Approach Vehicle category that is mandatory for completion, but becomes optional if another of the missions has been completed.

Completing this setup allows the player(s) to approach Cayo Perico in finale using a Longfin.


Pavel tells the player that the LSPD has captured one of Juan Strickler's boats which he uses for smuggling, providing an opportunity for them. He tasks them with heading to the marked police station that has the boat, loaded up on a trailer, advising them to secure a truck cab along the way, before stealing the boat, losing the cops, and bringing the vessel to a secure warehouse at the docks.


Pavel informs the protagonist that if they can secure a Longfin, they can approach the island covertly by pursuing as drug runners. He then reveals that one such boat has just been seized by the LSPD and is currently being detained on a trailer at a police station in Downtown Vinewood, Vespucci or La Mesa.

Players are initially sent to the marked police station where the boat is held, before Pavel advises them to secure a Phantom truck cab for the job, highlighting three that can be taken. The two highlighted truck cabs next to each other on the map are the regular Phantoms, guarded by a Security Guard, who will shoot at the player when trying to steal the truck, with some workers nearby, who will attack with fists if the player unarmed. The truck cab by itself is a Phantom Wedge, guarded by The Professionals with a Technical Custom.

The player can also use any other street-found truck cabs, owned Phantom Wedge, or their Mobile Operations Center cab to take the trailer. However, if the player arrives at the drop-off point with their MOC cab, the game will instruct the player to leave the vehicle and tell the player to get into the vehicle when they leave, making the mission unable to be completed; The player must use one of the other trucks and deliver the trailer to the drop-off point in the end. Conveniently, there will usually be a Phantom cab parked near the drop point.

Once players have secured a truck cab, they must hitch it to the trailer, and they will incur a 3-Star Wanted Level (though without any helicopters being dispatched). At this point, they must lose the cops, before being given their final objective - to deliver the trailer to a drop-off point within the docks on Elysian Island. Destroying the trailer will result in mission failure.

  • If the player drives the flatbed in the Los Santos Storm Drain after losing the cops, the mission will fail. It is unknown why this occurs.
