The Rower is a minor character in the anime and manga Naruto
Land of Waves arc
As Team 7 and Tazuna travel to the Land of Waves, they get to the island by the Rower, an unnamed resident of the Land of Waves, who rows them undetected past Gato and his henchmen. While traveling, he leaves the boat's motor off so that they slip in without being heard. For the same reason, he scolds Naruto for shouting while near the bridge. He is able to take them to the edge of the Land of Waves, at which point he turns the motor on and leaves, wishing the group luck on their journey. He is assumed to have gotten away safely from Gato and his men.
