The Log Canoe is a vehicle object in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. It is a hollowed out birch log that serves as a boat. It incidentally saves the Kongs from falling off their Mine Cart in the level, Sawmill Thrill.
The Log Canoe is maneuvered in a similar way to the Mine Cart, as the Kongs can jump with it and duck inside it to avoid obstacles, such as buzzsaws and spikes. The characters mostly ride the Log Canoe on gutters, but it also enables the Kongs to travel along the surface of the water. Here, the characters can dive underwater with the Log Canoe everytime they jump and collect items found there. As with the Mine Cart, the Log Canoe can be used to jump on enemies and defeat them in one hit, as it happens with Pufftons which are the only enemies encountered while riding the Log Canoe.
