Location and Uses

The Raft in The Adventure of Link

As an obtainable item, the raft can be obtained in the third dungeon of The Legend of Zelda and the third dungeon of The Adventure of Link. It helps Link to cross rivers and lakes, but can only be launched from docks.[1]

The Raft in Oracle of Ages

In Oracle of Ages, when Link gives Rafton Cheval Rope retrieved from Cheval's Tomb, Rafton gives Link a raft that allows him to cross deep water. However, this is not an item that Link can equip.

Minor appearances

Raft in Link's Awakening

In Link's Awakening, the Rapids Ride costs 100 Rupees to ride a raft down a white water rapid where many items, such as Rupees, bombs, and arrows, can be found.

In The Wind Waker, rafts are found floating around in the Great Sea with large masts that have skulls on top. Often, Bokoblins can be found on the rafts. Traveling Merchants seem to prefer using rafts as well.
