Swimming lets you explore the sea around your island on Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
After buying a wetsuit, you will be able to explore the ocean and even dive.
Swimming and diving will allow you to start collecting various sea creatures that live under the waves, and you might even meet Pascal, the beaver.
Where to Buy Wetsuit
Before you can swim at New Horizons, you need to buy a wetsuit.
To be able to buy these clothes, go to your local Cranny Nook and look in the cabinet. There you will find a wetsuit which sells for 3,000 Bell.
You can also buy special Nook range diving suits by visiting the Nook Stop at Residential Services and selecting the ‘Redeem Nook Miles’ option.
The black and turquoise suit will make you return 800 Nook Miles and, like all Nook clothes, will arrive by mail the day after you buy it.
For an additional 500 Nook Miles, you can also buy snorkeling Nook Inc.
How to Swim in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
After bringing your wetsuit, it’s time to explore the sea around your island in New Horizons.
However, first of all, you have to wear diving suits, which is done by how you change clothes to each other. Just find it in your inventory, select it, and choose the option – ‘Wear.’
There are other swim themed clothes, such as scuba masks, which you can wear when swimming. However, these items will not affect your swimming or diving abilities.
Now that you’ve used everything, it’s time to go to the beach and get into the water.
You can walk to the waves or dive from one of the rocky platforms on your island by pressing A.
To swim, you need to press A and then use the left analog stick to decide which direction you want to enter, choose which way you want to go in, and which means.
How to dive in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Once you are on the waves, it’s time to experiment with diving.
At New Horizons, you can dive while swimming by pressing Y.
Doing this will allow you to disappear beneath the waves for a while and maybe even find one or two sea creatures.
