Maui wants to talk to you.

The demigod thinks Dreamlight Valley is missing something. Coconuts. To solve the problem, he decides to bring them to the Village, but first he needs an Eel. He thinks Goofy can help.

Goofy explains that in order to catch some Eels, you're going to need a trap.

Now that you have a Fishing Trap, you just need to place it in the waters of Dazzle Beach near the dock.

As surprising as it sounds, you'll have to plant the Eel so Coconuts can grow...


Tips and Tricks[edit]

  • The Eel can be fished from golden bubbles that appear near the Fishing Trap.
  • Once planted, the Eel will need to be watered with the Watering Can. After a couple minutes it will turn dry and needs to be watered again.
