Zelda Breath of the Wild: How to Ride a Raft

How to Ride a Raft or Boat with a Sail in Breath of the Wild

In The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Link can traverse many different types of landscapes. Even crazy white water rapids. That’s right, there’s a bit of Wind Waker in this Zelda, with rafts being a great way to get around some rivers and lakes. Once you find a raft, hop on it. You might be a bit stumped as to what to do next, though.

Well, if you have gotten yourself a Korok Leaf (from chopping down trees), you can use this to push some wind behind the sail and move the raft as well as steer it. Yeah, the gusts of wind that seemed pretty useless to use before definitely have a use! You simply lock on to the sail and then attack with the Y button. This will shoot a gust of wind with each swing, and your raft will be moving forward slowly but surely. Just keep attacking in succession and you’ll get where you want to go.

It may be a slow way to get across, but a boat or raft is definitely the safest mode of transportation above raging water.
