Coral Island – The Complete Ocean Critters Guide

Coral Island is a reimagined life and farming sim that has a strong focus on looking after the environment around you. This lush and tranquil island is about to be the site of a new oil-digging site by the evil Pufferfish Drilling Corp. When you arrive you can see the devastation that pollution and deforestation have done to the island. Living life on the island you can help by diving into the ocean and picking up trash. While you’re down there you can also find a few valuables, meet some mermaids and even collect some critters.

Ocean critters are the bugs of the sea and you can use your trusty bug net while diving to catch them. You can collect critters to donate to the museum or sell them for gold. Like insects and fish, ocean critters will spawn in specific locations during certain seasons and times. Find out where and when to catch all the ocean critters on Coral Island.

   

How To Catch Ocean Critters

Ocean critters as the name might suggest are found deep within the ocean. It’s not something you’ll have access to straight away when you start the game. Instead you’ll need to wait about a week to trigger the Diving quest “Into The Ocean”. On Day 8 you’ll recieve a letter from Ling, the head marine biologist at the Laboratory. She’ll ask you to meet her by the Docks where she’ll give you a Diving Suit and teach you all the Diving basics.

Once you get the suit you’ll be able to go underwater to start cleaning up the ocean! Use the sickle to harvest up kelp and trash and you can use your Bug Net to catch the ocean critters. You’ll find catching these critters under the water similar to catching insects and bugs on land. (For a deeper guide to this check out our bug catching guide here).

Continue exploring the ocean and completing quests to unlock deeper parts of it. The deeper the ocean the rarer the resources and ocean critters you may find. To proceed further however, you’ll need to unlock areas by finding Solar Orbs, feeding the turtles and more. We’ve added here a fanmade map of the ocean currently available in Coral Island.
