In Animal Crossing
In Animal Crossing, the dock is located at the south of the town, on the ocean. The dock is empty and has no purpose unless the player connects a GameCube – Game Boy Advance link cable to the console. This causes Kapp'n to appear at the dock on a small rowboat, where he offers the player with a free boat ride to Animal Island.
Two days after paying off the 39,800 Bell mortgage to Tom Nook, the player can access Tortimer Island by meeting Kapp'n at the town's dock, similar to Animal Crossing. Unlike the previous title, Kapp'n can transport up to four players from the dock at once, and he charges 1,000 Bells for the service. There is also a basket on the dock that allows the player to retrieve up to 40 items they have collected on the island.
