There are some Vitalits that can only be found by doing certain tasks:
Level 1 Island of tranquility there are a few... Level 1 catch a fish on the fish fetch game by talking to one of the dolphins in the area and tailwalk on the surface and a vitalit appears
Level 2 perils of the deep kill the great-white and a Vitalit is left in its wake
Level 3 Trial without error
These are just a few but there are loads more
