How to Get the Wet Suit in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Before you can swim or dive in AC:NH, you'll need the wetsuit. Here's how to get it in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Since the launch of Animal Crossing: New Horizons' summer update, players have been able to swim in the beautiful blue ocean and take advantage of its many treasures, including the sea creatures found there. But to swim in AC:NH, you need to first get the wetsuit and put it on. You can't just jump into the ocean and start swimming. 

In this guide, we'll walk you through how to get the wet suit in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Luckily, it's really easy, even if it will set you back a few thousand Bells and/or Miles, depending on which one you pick. 

How to Get a Wet Suit in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Getting the wet suit is easy. Simply visit Nook's Cranny to purchase it for 3,000 Bells. It's called the Horizontal-striped wet suit, and you'll find it in the cabinet. Once you buy it, the Nook brothers will give you a bit of a rundown on how to swim. 

Additionally, you can purchase wet suits from the Nook Stop terminal for the same price, though these suits feature different designs, and the selection changes often. Be sure to stop by if you want to spice things up and change up your look. 

Short on bells? Not to worry. You can also buy a special Nook Inc. wet suit from the Nook Stop for 800 miles.

The last thing to do before swimming is to actually put your wet suit on, which works just like any other article of clothing. Select it from your inventory, put it on, and you'll be ready to swim!

That's all you need to know about how to get the wetsuit in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Easy peasy. If you're looking for more tips, tricks, and/or guides, consider heading over to our Animal Crossing: New Horizons guides page for even more!
