How to catch a Gigas Giant Clam in Animal Crossing New Horizons

Trying to find out how to catch a Gigas Giant Clam in Animal Crossing New Horizons? This sea creature is one of forty new critters in the summer update. Catching it can be annoying due to its fast swimming speed, but we have some tips to help you out. Put on that wet suit, because we’re about to go hunting for a Gigas Giant Clam.

How to catch a Gigas Giant Clam in Animal Crossing New Horizons

Here’s the Gigas Giant Clam seasonality, active hours, shadow size, and selling price:

  • Sea Creature: Gigas Giant Clam
  • Seasonality: May-September
  • Active Hours: All-day
  • Shadow: Extra Large
  • Selling Price: 15,000

Like all deep-sea creatures, make sure to have your wet suit so you can hop in the water and start swimming and diving. Look out for bubbles coming out of the water to spot the creatures. Swim closer to the area and dive underwater when you’re close. If you see an extra-large shadow that moves very fast, you’re likely about to go after a Gigas Giant Clam.

The process for catching a Gigas Giant Clam is similar to the Giant Isopod and Vampire Squid. All three of these deep-sea creatures are very fast, and it’s challenging to catch up to one of them. Fortunately, there is a trick you can use to make it easier. You likely already know this, but there’s a net surrounding the water. Sea creatures cannot go out of bounds, and we’re going to use this to our advantage.

Chase the Gigas Giant Clam towards the net, while being as close to it as possible. When it gets to the net, it will do a U-turn, allowing you time to catch it. If you played Animal Crossing New Leaf, you might think the creatures will swim out of bounds, but that’s not the case with New Horizons. Instead of chasing the sea creatures around for twenty minutes, try this strategy instead. 

Now that you know how to catch a Gigas Giant Clam in Animal Crossing New Horizons, it’s time to put your skills to the test. Good luck out there!
