You’ll find the cage key in Akka’s office on Ambrose Island. This is in the well-guarded area at the back of the pirate shanty town, just next to the stilt village. You’ll need to get a pirate disguise to find your way up to the office or be incredibly stealthy. The key itself is underneath a note on Akka’s desk. See below for a map reference for the exact location.

The cage key is used to open a cage with two prisoners inside. The cage is almost directly beneath Akka’s office in the same location you find the key. Inside the cage are two NPCs linked to the best activities on Ambrose Island. One is an old friend of Agent 47’s, Agent Smith, who will make his way off the island if you release him. He’ll then hint at the Assassination challenge you can complete using the cage he was held in. Although all the Assassinations on this island are pretty great. See below for a map reference for the cage.

The second NPC in the cage is a prisoner with a bag over their head. They’ve left notes around Ambrose Island, and you’ll need to collect them all to uncover their identity and help them. If you don’t, the pirates outside will just grab them and bring them back to the cage you found them in.
