The Animal Crossing: New Horizons 2.0.0 update is full of new things to do and do. There’s a whole range of vegetables to grow, new ways to decorate, and new ordinances to enact. You can even cook now, another brand new addition to the Animal Crossing series. One of the other big additions is fan-favorite character Kapp’n and his tours of the island.
The New Horizons base game already featured island tours, which you would fly to using Dodo Airlines. They would take you to various islands where you could gather and collect resources, and meet new villagers to invite to your island. Kapp’n Island tours differ in several respects, however. They can be at different times of the day, in different seasons, and also have different flora. This will allow you to get certain things without needing to time travel, a common tactic used by many Animal Crossing players.
But how do you take a tour of the island with Kapp’n? As soon as you download the update, you can immediately go on tour. Isabelle mentions it in the morning announcements, so it’s pretty hard to miss. To find Kapp’n, simply head to where the dock is on your island; it will not be the same as the Dodo Airlines dock. He’ll be sitting there in his beach-themed outfit, wearing sunglasses.
Once you are introduced to each other, he can take you on one of his 1000 mile tours. Dodo Airlines Nook Mystery Tour tickets cost 2000 Nook Miles, so Kapp’n seems to be giving you a good deal here.
