Red Dead Redemption 2 Players Are Using A Canoe To Escape The World

The world of Red Dead Redemption 2 is large. Though after you spend enough time running around the deserts and swamps of RDR2, you might want to take a vacation.

Maybe go visit a new exotic land? Some crafty players have figured out how to do just that and all it takes is a canoe and some patience.

If you haven’t beaten RDR2 yet, the location players are visiting might be a spoiler.

So you want to leave The West behind for a bit and go somewhere a little more tropical? Basment Gamer Bros has a simple and short video showing players how to escape the world in just a small boat.

You will first need to trick the game into thinking you even deserve your little tropical vacation. To do this, you’ll have to use a different glitch to leave the playable map of RDR2. Nobody said this trip was going to be easy.

Once you’ve activated this first glitch, you’ll have to head south for a bit until you get a notification that you have entered Guarma. However, if you look around you will notice you are not on a fictional Cuban island, but still very much in The Wild West. That’s OK, this is all part of the process!

The next step is to turn around and head north towards the Lannahechee River.

At the river you should find some canoes. “Borrow” one of these small boats and start paddling north up the river. This is going to take some time, so maybe grab a drink or a snack.

Eventually, after tapping and tapping the row button, you will break free of the map. Unfortunately, you now have even more rowing ahead of you. Once you reach a low texture land mass on the right, direct your canoe towards the shore.

Instead of getting stuck on the beach, you and your canoe will paddle through like nothing is in your way.

Once you get under the land just keep paddling south and eventually you will reach the coastline of Guarma. Enjoy your tropical vacation, you’ve certainly earned it after all that damn paddling.

This isn’t the only way to get to Guarma. Other players have used various different methods to reach the island, including falling through an opening in the game world.


  • I wanna do this but then I kill the “reality” Arthur occupies and lose immersion value.
    Although, last night I was ducking for cover behind a shack (a prop building you can’t enter) during a shootout with bounty hunters, and I inadvertently side-dived into it’s interior. Neatest room I’d seen in the game. It was like a pre-fab prairie house for a new suburb coming soon.
    Couldn’t get out though. Had to dynamite self to death.

    • If you save and reload, it usually puts you a little distance away, doesn’t it? Been a while since I loaded it up.

      • Couldn’t save. I was surrounded by lawmen who followed my tracks and couldn’t get past my disappearance into thin air. There was actually distinct dialogue for them being confused AF about my whereabouts.

  • Man I’m taking every opportunity I can to say this game was one of the best story / narrative games I’ve ever played.

  • Arthur is possibly the best example of character development without taking the arse out of it. He says less than your average PC but still grows far more than any spiky haired RPG protagonist in his time with you.

    I also think the conversations you can hold with Molly, Karen and Tilly behind camp demonstrate that he is slightly aware he is being controlled somehow (Black Mirror: Bandersnatch style).

  • Wow people have too much time on their hands, seems like a waste of my valuable play time.
    I really enjoyed the story and love the characters but I can’t get past all the recycled mechanics and systems from GTA5, it’s essentially Gta5 with a Red Dead skin. Don’t get me started about Online, lol.
