Animal Crossing Gullivarrr: Pirate furniture and other pirate rewards in New Horizons explained

Watch out for the black spot...

Gullivarrr is the pirate counterpart of Gulliver, who, despite apparently not being the same seagull, will also end up standard on your beach in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Introduced in the first part of the New Horizons summer update on Friday, July 3rd 2020, Gullivarrr is a rotating visitor to your island, which means that you'll never quite know when he'll wash ashore next.

If you help Gullivarrr return to his ship, he'll reward you with a range of pirate furniture and rewards, such as pirate inspired clothing.

Gullivarrr in Animal Crossing: New Horizons explained

If you want to meet Gullivarrr, then you must first purchase a wetsuit from Nook's Cranny or the Nook Stop in Residential Services.

One day, in New Horizons, you might be wandering along one of your island's beaches and stubble upon a familiar looking seagull wearing some unfamiliar clothes.


Talk to him until he wakes up and he'll reveal that he is, in fact, Gullivarrr - a pirate, who, after falling overboard, has lost his phone. Unsurprisingly, he'd like your help to find it.

How to find Gullivarrr's communicator in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

To find Gullivarrr's communicator in New Horizons, you need to swim out into the ocean, so put on a wetsuit and jump into the waves.

Once you're out in the water, all you have to do is dive at the various bubbling spots, until you find Gullivarrr's communicator. This may take some time, but keep searching!

Dive into the water to find Gullivarrr's lost communicator.

You'll find the communicator eventually and, when you do, you can return it to Gullivarrr on the mainland.
