This spell was similar to sticks to snakes except it was specifically for use on oars, and created a few very large and tough sea serpents that remained in their oarlocks for the duration of the spell. Oars to snakes affected a minimum of three oars for at least a half hour, with more experienced druids able to transform more oars for a longer period of time.
Most often cast defensively, a ship's oars could be used to attack boarders. Each snake could engage one enemy at a time and fought with a devastating, poisonous bite. Casting oars to snakes offensively, it had a range of 150 ft (46 m) and the snakes were oriented with their heads inside the ship to attack the rowers.
While the oars were in snake form, they were useless for propelling a ship. If any snake was killed in combat, it reverted to a broken and unusable oar when the spell ended. Otherwise, the oars were restored to their original condition.
