Whirlpool Waterways
"There are six magical whirlpools in the rivers and lakes which connect three warp waterways. If you dive into one of the whirlpools, you will surface in a far away body of water. You can make use of these watery short-cuts once you have Zora's Flippers."

Whirlpool Waterways can transport Link from one body of water to another once he has obtained the Zora's Flippers.[2] There are six Whirlpool Waterways in the Light World and two of them in the Dark World. Each Whirlpool will always take Link to the same preset destination.
