So when I first unlocked Tortimer's Island and took the first trip with Kapp'n, he asked me whether or not I wanted him to sing a song on the way or not. Seeing as it was my first trip, and I was heading to the Island with some friends, I figured why not have some entertainment.

This has now become somewhat of an annoyance. Sometimes I just want to get to the island quickly to do some fishing or bug catching, and I want to do it as quickly as possible so I can get back before shops close and pay off some of my loan. Is there any way I can get Kapp'n to stop singing each time we set sail?


After trying out some random button mashing out of frustration and doing some research to confirm my findings, there is a way to skip the songs and go straight to or from the island.

Once he starts singing, you can either press A or B repeatedly (I tested and both buttons work, not just B, as many sites report), or rapidly tap on the touchscreen and he'll stop singing.

He'll also guilt you a little about skipping his song, but that has no effect on gameplay.

    Note you can hold B while he complains and the game will transition even faster to the landing. – Ben Brocka Jul 4 '13 at 16:00

There is a way to make him stop singing.

Press the B button or A button once he starts singing the song, or rapidly tap on the Touch screen and then he can stop singing.
