In The Legend of Zelda, the Raft can be obtained in the Manji labyrinth. In The Adventure of Link, it can be found in the Island Palace. In both games it is used to cross bodies of water such as rivers and lakes, although it can only be launched from docks.[1]

In Link's Awakening, Link can ride a Raft during the Rapids Ride mini-game.

In Oracle of Ages, if Link gives Rafton the Cheval Rope, he will give Link a Raft that can be used to cross deep water. However, this is not an item that Link can equip. After Link is washed ashore on Crescent Island, the Raft is destroyed.

In The Wind Waker, Rafts are found floating around the Great Sea with large masts that have skulls on top. Some Rafts are protected by Bokoblins, which may have pots, barrels, and Treasure Chests. Rafts can also be found around islands where Traveling Merchants are found.
