In order to get kapp'n at the docks you first have to upgrade your house at least once and tortimer must appear on the start of your game if he doesn't, upgrade your house one more time (yes, people have had this and the only way to go is to upgrade your house 1 or 2 times just in case) if Tortimer appears on your start of the game he will ask you to go to the docks to meet him there, go there and he will tell you that there will be a boat that's coming the next day and guess who it is it is Kapp'n! and he will ask if you want to go to the island for 1,000 Bells I don't remember but if it's your first time I THINK he will let you go to the island for free Wish i could remember :(

Okay you have to upgrade your house 2 times, and then talk to Tortimer, (The Mayor from Animal Crossing: Wild World) and he will tell you to come to the dock. Then the next day you will be able to come to the docks and see Kapp'n. He will let you go on your first trip for free, and then it is 1,000 bells per trip after that (And you can go more than one time a day) and you can also go with your friends from other towns as well.

I met Tortimer and I didnt upgrade my house at all. Lucha still calls it "compact". So you dont have to upgrade your house, just pay off your loan. I love Knapp'n, though. His songs are funny sometimes, like when he sang about going to the doc with a broken butt and it had a crack down the middle.

You unlock him when tortimer and the island come out
