The camera shows the players faces and moves around to pan to first-person view.
In normal gameplay, teams are in each of the two boats, red and green. Players must move their Joy-Con repeatingly until they reach the finish line. There are buoys floating on the water that may block the team's boat. There is also a mechanical Cheep Cheep moving side to side and can hit the team's boats. The team can also hit each other or block their way to the finish line. The first team to reach the finish line wins the minigame.
The team poses their victory while the other team sulks for their loss.
