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

Before you dive into the water in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, we'll show you how to get a wet suit.

Now that Animal Crossing: New Horizons has gotten its summer update, players are finally able to swim and enjoy the beautiful blue ocean.

In this guide, we'll walk you through how to get the wet suit and give you other helpful tips you'll need for acquiring a suit that's right for you. 

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 click on it for purchase, 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. 

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!

How to Dive in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

After you've gotten the wet suit of your choice and put it on, you'll be ready to dive in. We cover swimming in much more detail here, but for this guide, just know that you can run over to the beach or dock to jump into the water. 

While swimming, be on the lookout for collectible sea critters, which are indicated by sets of bubbles. In addition, collecting items may spawn Pascal, a friendly sea otter who rewards you with Mermaid DIY recipes.
