Who is Kapp’n?
Kapp’n is a kappa, a mythical turtle-like Japanese folktale monster, recognized for operating different ways of transport. In previous Animal Crossing games, he has driven buses and taxis. But, in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, he is returned to his sailing roots.
From your island’s dock, he is going to lead you to mysterious islands. Need to know that Kapp’n’s Boat Tours cost 1,000 Nook Miles per trip. He is going to sing you a sweet song on the way. As a player, you are only allowed one boat ride per day.
What Are Kapp’n Boat Tours in Animal Crossing?
Kapp’n Boat Tours will offer a new way to find unique and mysterious islands from far in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. It is different from the mystery islands that Dodo Airline have been able to take since launch. Those new mysterious islands are going to offer new special items which cannot be found on your own home island, like new kinds of flora such as vines and bushes. We think that there might be new kinds of fruits too, but that has yet to be confirmed.
Aside from that, Kapp’n is able to take you to islands that have a different weather than your home island. For instance, when your date is set to July in the Northern Hemisphere, you may be able to visit an island which is in Winter allowing you to catch different fish or bugs. In fact, those out-of-season islands are able to feature special seasonal materials like the Snowflakes, or the items from a different time of day like wishing for Star Fragments.
