Confused on where to find Kapp’n’s Boat Tours, how to take a boat tour, or why you should? Read on for everything you need to know about Kapp’n’s Boat Tours in Animal Crossing: New Horizons! 

Where to Find Kapp’n’s Boat Tours in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Kapp’n’s Boat Tours are a new feature that lets you explore other islands for resources. Notably, you can find buried Gyroid Fragments on the islands you visit through Kapp’n’s Boat Tours! 

To start, Kapp’n’s Boat Tours can be found on your island’s previously unoccupied pier. You might’ve dived from this pier during the summer to search for sea creatures. If you’re having a hard time finding it, you can actually spot this pier from your island’s map (as seen in the image below).

Once you find your pier, you’ll find Kapp’n chilling in his boat. Approach him and talk to him to learn about Kapp’n’s Boat Tours.After that, talk to him again and give him 1,000 Nook Miles to go on a boat tour. 

Every boat tour will cost you 1,000 Nook Miles, so be sure to get your money’s worth while you’re exploring the random island Kapp’n takes you to! As for why you’d want to spend 1,000 Nook Miles on this, Kapp’n’s Boat Tours are essential when it comes to getting Brewster to your island. 

After talking to Blathers about Brewster, your next step is taking one of Kapp’n’s Boat Tours. In our previous guide on how to get Brewster, we explain: 

“Once you’re on the island look around and you’ll find Brewster, an owl in a safari cap, and a killer mustache. Talk to Brewster who will then give you a Gyroid Fragment and teach you how to plant and water Gyroids.” 

So, as you can see, Kapp’n’s Boat Tours are essential when it comes to unlocking Brewster, and for getting Gyroids in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. 

To recap, Kapp’n’s Boat Tours can be accessed from your island’s pier. It costs 1,000 Nook Miles to take one of Kapp’n’s Boat Tours. On the islands Kapp’n takes you to, you can find Brewster and Gyroid Fragments (among other things) in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

We hope this guide has helped!
