In the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the raft is a great way to travel across bodies of water. The raft is one of the best ways to get from island to island, and to reach places that are otherwise out of reach.
A raft is a small wooden boat used to cross water. They lack oars, but they are not difficult to use. To operate a raft, you need to move around and use the directional arrow keys to navigate.
A raft is not as impressive as a flying machine, but they are still a good way to travel from island to island. For example, in the Manji dungeon, the raft is a good way to get to Level 3 of MAP1 without having to go through the caves.
Rafts are also the best way to navigate through flooded passages in the Shrine of Water. This is especially true when the raft is accompanied by the Korok Leaf, which is a nifty little device that pushes the wind behind the sail.
If you’re wondering what the raft has in common with the plane, the answer is that they both require wind and water to function. Sailing is not a particularly dangerous form of transportation, but it’s easy to be knocked off if you’re not careful.
However, the real trick is using the raft to your advantage. In the game, rafts can be used to navigate rapid rivers, or to safely navigate through areas that may be too deep for the Korok Leaf to handle. Another trick is to use an abandoned raft to get to previously inaccessible locations.
