The pier, known as the dock prior to Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a structure located at the beach in the Animal Crossing series.

Animal Crossing[edit]

In Animal Crossing, the dock is located at the southern end 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.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf[edit]

In New Leaf, 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.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons[edit]

The pier has a much smaller role in New Horizons, with its only purpose being to catch fish. Unlike in previous games, where it would generate on the southern beach of a new town, in New Horizons it can generate on either the eastern or western beach of the player's island. There is also a pier on the south edge of every mystery island. Along with the usual ocean fish appearing at the pier, there are four species of fish that will only appear here, these being:

The Airport also counts as a pier, and these four fish can be caught next to it as a result.
