Can You Swim In Animal Crossing: New Horizons?

Yes! Players are able to fully swim within New Horizons as this option was added during their free Summer update back in 2020.

There are some steps you are going to need to take in order to swim, however.


Players will need to purchase a wetsuit from Nook's Cranny and it is going to run you 3000 Bells.

After purchasing this, you should be able to explore most of the surrounding water around your island.

Swimming is one of the cooler features within the game, as it allows you to catch some Sea Creatures along the way.

Some of these are worth the time and effort, so be on the lookout!


As well, make sure to let us know how you are finding all the new content within New Horizons and what is planned for the near future! 

We cannot wait to hear from you.
