Swimming In ‘Animal Crossing: New Horizons’: How It Works, Sea

  • To swim, you need a wetsuit. To get your first wetsuit, go to the nooks and crannies and check out the tools, seeds and the like in the cupboard. You can use 3,000 ACBellsBuy one, and if you don't like it, you can buy more through Nook Shopping or other channels. You'll also receive a submersible, but that's just for fashion.

    This means that your little villagers can now explore the surrounding ocean islands and dive down into the new bio-water, after which you need to put on a diving suit and head to the edge of your island. Hit A jump in the water, then hit A continue to pull. You do it! That's most of it, and when it comes to Vibing, you've done it.

    There's plenty of Marine life here, but unlike fish or worms, you have no real way of knowing what you might be looking at until you collect them. You just have to swim around and look for those bubbles that pop up. When you see this, press Y to dive underwater: the camera will move and you will be able to see the shadow of the bubble disappears. As far as I know, all shadows look the same, so you need to go over and see what it is. Your character will find something new, maybe a mussel, seaweed, or jellyfish. Unlike fish and worms, there is no real way to tell them apart before you catch them.

    You can donate these new creatures to Blathers and get them collected-- it's a game that we do business and collect Animal Crossing Items after all.. This is the main part of it: a neat little addition that brings the museum back into play, and I always like it when it does. It might take you a whole year to get them all right, just like bugs and fish. Also, if you get a scallop, a cooled otter will appear to give you a DIY recipe.
