What Are Sea Creatures?

Sea Creatures are things that you can find in the ocean in Animal Crossing while diving,

When you've opened the Museum you can also donate some of them.

If you aren't really interested in collecting, no worries.

These creatures can also be sold for Bells, in some cases, a LOT of them

Of course, these Bells can then be put towards other things.

How To Catch Sea Creatures

To catch sea creatures in Animal Crossing New Horizons, you need a Wet Suit.

You can buy one from Nook's Cranny for 3,000 bells.

Otherwise, you can order one from the Nook Shopping app.

When you have it, equip it and you can dive in by pressing "A" when close to the ocean.

Jump off of a rock if you feel like!

When swimming you should see bubbles swim to them and press "Y".

You'll dive deeper and should come back up with a sea creature.

If the shadow begins to move then swim towards it by tapping "A" and catch it by pressing "A" again.
