Animal Crossing: New Horizons sea creature guide (July 2020)

With the newest update to Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you now have the ability to swim around your island. Deep-sea diving has introduced us to new creatures to collect. This will help you create a fully-fleshed-out museum, full of wonder and beauty. It can also help you make some extra money by selling the extra items.

There are quite a few different sea creatures available to players. However, catching these sea animals can be difficult. They show up during different times of the day and in different months, and they can be tough to catch. Luckily, we put together a list of all the sea creatures you can find.

Sea creatures galore

There are a variety of sea creatures and, much like the bugs and fish, the sea creatures will rotate per month. This will give you an ample amount of time to try to catch those fast-moving bubbles in the sea. It also gives you more opportunities to find scallops. You can trade one scallop per day with Pascal, the adorable otter who will trade you one scallop for one mermaid DIY. Occasionally, he’ll give you elusive pearls as well, which can help you build the mermaid DIYs.

Unlike the fish and insects, there is no NPC that will pay double for your sea catches. Unfortunately, as of right now, you’re only able to sell these sea creatures to Nook’s Cranny — there isn’t a higher price for the creatures. However, because Animal Crossing is constantly updating and changing, this may change. Someday, we may get an NPC that is willing to pay as much for sea creatures as CJ does for fish or Flick does for bugs.

Before going swimming, you’ll need to purchase a wetsuit. You can find a striped suit of varying colors in Nook’s Cranny. Additionally, the Nook Stop also will give you the option to purchase an exclusive diving suit using Nook Miles Tickets. It does not matter which version of the suit you buy, but one is required in order to dive.

It’s also worth noting that you don’t have to jump into the ocean from the rocks along the beach. Players can also dive into the ocean from the pier or simply walk in from the beach. Although it seems pointless to mention, it’s worth knowing that you can enter the water from virtually anywhere on your island.

Here are the sea creatures that you can find.
