You must have done the Royal Painter Escort before Halshaob will grant you this quest.
Trade him a single mythril piece and he should grant you this quest. Once you've done that, head over to the Ashu Talif (same place you go to for the Black Coffin fight.) Mind you, your buffs will wear when you enter, so save the MP and the time. Just get in there!
Get your buffs on and head to towards the ships hold. Two Imps will be blocking your way. They should be in the same spot as the NM from the previous quest, if memory serves. IF you manage to do a sneak attack (not the JA, per se, but literally just sneaking up to them) it will cause the main NM's pet to move in a more fixed pattern instead of randomish. More on this in a bit!
Once the Imps are defeated, head through the door and you will find the corsair Cutthroat Kabsalah and his sidekick, Bubbly the monkey! (Opo-opo)
This quest has a possibility of dropping three treasure chests. Two are for defeating both Kabsalah and Bubbly. The last one is the tricky one which will make the strat with the Imps make sense!
You have to sneak up on the Captain and attack him from behind! If you are successful, he'll have some dialogs confirming it. Make sure you don't lose aggro to him when you do this as it'll null out the sneak attack.
