Where to Find 5 Communicator Parts

To find 5 Communicator Parts in Animal Crossing New Horizons you'll need to get out your shovel and dig. They're pretty easy to find once you know where to dig. Just look for little holes that form in the sand, they'll shoot out little jets of water. This is where you'd usually find clams, though while Gulliver's on the beach, you'll find Communicator Parts.

When Will Gulliver Visit Your Island?

Gulliver will randomly wash up on the beach. We first encountered him on day 2, and saw him at least once a week from then on. There's no way to tell when he'll wash up on your island so just keep an eye out.

How to Wake Gulliver Up

To wake Gulliver up, just keep talking to him. He'll take a while to come to, but if you speak to him five times he should wake up. Once he's up, you can get started in finding the Communicator Parts.

What Do You Get For Helping Gulliver?

If you manage to find all five Communicator Parts you'll help Gulliver get back to his ship. The next day, you'll get a letter from him along with a reward. This is often a furniture item. To learn how to customize items, visit this guide.
