Tortimer Island is a tropical island south of the player's town in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. The island is accessed via a boat ride by Kapp'n from the town's dock. On the island is an interior lobby where Leilani, Leila, and Grams reside; the player can register for minigame tours, purchase exclusive items, and sell items in the lobby. Outside is a circular island where the player can catch bugs, fish, and sea creatures. The climate on the island is always summer.

Unlocking and visiting[edit]

Kapp'n at the dock

After the player pays off their first home loan, Tortimer appears at the town's dock the following day. After speaking to him, he tells the player that Kapp'n can take the player to Tortimer Island beginning the following day.

Once unlocked, the player can speak to Kapp'n at the dock to take a trip to the island for 1,000 Bells. All items in the player's pockets are held by Kapp'n until returning to town. Up to four players (either residents or visitors) can visit the island.

Lobby[edit]

Inside the lobby on the island resides Kapp'n's family: Leilani, who lets the player go on minigame-like tours or travel back to the mainland; Grams, who runs a shop that sells exclusive items; and Leila, whom the player can sell items to. Additionally, there is an ABD in the building where the player can deposit and withdraw Bells.

A guide to the island's various features is located on the left-hand side of the tour counter where Leilani resides.

Items Drop-Off Box[edit]

Items received on the island must be placed in the Items Drop-Off Box, located next to Leilani, to be brought back to the mainland. Up to 40 items can be placed in the Items Drop-Off Box, and there is a corresponding box at the town's dock where the items can be collected upon the player's return. Any items left in the player's pockets upon returning to the mainland will be sold at Leila's rate of 5% of the standard sell price.

Tours[edit]

Main article: Tour

Tours are timed minigames hosted by Tortimer that task the player with completing a certain objective, such as catching a specific number of bugs or popping a certain number of balloons. Completing the objective within the time limit rewards the player with medals, which are used to purchase items from the island's shop.

Souvenir Shop[edit]

The Souvenir Shop

The Souveneir Shop is operated by Grams and sells four exclusive tropical- or island-themed items each day. Items are paid for with medals, and they are automatically sent to the Items Drop-Off Box upon purchase.
