The swamp boaty is a seemingly deserted rowboat found in the Mort Myre Swamp, at a point marked on the world map as The Hollows. Upon completion of Nature Spirit, it provides a free ride to the town of Mort'ton to the south. If this quest is not completed however, the player character will refuse to board the swamp boaty, stating "It's probably not a good idea to use this boat without permission."

Along the course of In Search of the Myreque, the swamp boaty is discovered to belong to Cyreg Paddlehorn, who is persuaded to let the adventurer use his boat to reach the Myreque Hideout. Afterwards, he will offer to make let the player make the trip from Mort'ton to The Hollows in exchange for 10 coins.

Boarding the swamp boaty at The Hollows is a task required for the medium Morytania Diary. The quickest way to get to the boat is to travel to the nearby fairy ring using code BKR. Once there, players should head south-east. An alternative but slower method is to go though the Canifis cellar, exit the large doors at the end, and head south across the bridge.

Changes[edit | edit source]

Date Changes
12 June 2020
  • The scenery previously made temporarily traversable has now been fully cleared away.
  • Making use of the northern swamp boaty now merely requires completion of Nature Spirit.[1]
5 June 2020

Some objects that were accidentally added to the swamps near Darkmeyer have been replaced with traversable scenery, rendering the swamp boaty accessible again.[2]

4 June 2020
  • Elements of unnamed scenery have been added to the Mort Myre Swamp, cutting off the northern approach to the swamp boaty.[3]
  • Travelling from The Hollows to Mort'ton by way of the swamp boaty now requires partial completion of In Search of the Myreque.[4]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Unlike the Boaty, its name is neither a reference to Boaty McBoatface nor the streamer B0aty. Most likely, the name was a typo, since Boaty is an adjective rather than a noun, and its name was corrected to "Swamp Boat" in RuneScape.
