Getting Around Part 3 Boat Obtaining One Boats, obviously enough, are stationed in the waterways of San Andreas; most of the docks in the game will have a boat or two somewhere nearby. All you need to do to get one is climb aboard and press the triangle button. If youíre attempting to board a boat while swimming, use the square button to climb out of the water. Note that boats donít play nearly as big a role in San Andreas as they did in Vice City; planes are where the real actionís at now. Driving One Not much to it here; just hit forward and try to avoid really sharp turns, which will send the boat spinning. Rather, use small adjustments to your steering to keep yourself oriented where you want to go. Techniques Drive-By: As with cars, you can perform drive-bys (float-bys?) in a boat with the R1 and L1 buttons. Planes and Helicopters Obtaining One San Andreas is the first entry in the GTA series where you can truly take to the air. Although GTAIII had its Dodo, and Vice City had the Sparrow, these were difficult to control and had limited uses. With the sprawling size of the game world, though, the designers of San Andreas have seen fit to give players a quick way to get between cities. You wonít be able to get a plane right away, though; in fact, you wonít be able to fly until you complete a set of flying tests before you reach the third city in the game. After you get your pilotís license, though, the airports in each city will unlock their gates, letting you roam in and find a vehicle to your liking.
