Canoe

A player canoeing along the River Lum.

A canoe is a small boat that players can make to access faster transportation on the River Lum. Building canoes require the Woodcutting skill, and like other Woodcutting interactions, building the boat is faster with higher tier axes. At every canoe station there is an NPC to teach you how to make a canoe.

Canoes will stay on a station if left until you log out. Making a canoe at another station will clear any previously left canoes while teleporting does not.

Trivia

  • "Waka" is the Māori word for canoe, or vessel. This word can by interpretation mean a spiritual vessel, or plain transportation. Waka canoes are used in New Zealand predominately. Further, the Old School RuneScape sprite resembles a waka canoe.[1][2][3]
