UPDATED 2/03/2010 – The Earth is 2/3rds water and judging by the huge volume of boating videos online, it’s clear that enjoying the water is a worldwide pursuit. To help put boating videos in their world context, EarthNC has put together a growing Google Earth map of boating videos drawn from YouTube.  Videos are found automatically by searching YouTube for boating, sailing, and fishing keywords that also include a place description.  

Getting Started

  1. Before downloading our Boating Videos for Google Earth KML file, we suggest that you first ensure that you have the latest version of Google Earth. The file won’t work properly unless you have at least version 4.2.  Get the latest Google Earth HERE.
  2. Once you’ve verified that you have the latest Google Earth, open our Boating Videos for Google Earth KML file. This file will update with new boating videos automatically as you use Google Earth
  3. Locations with boating videos are marked with video thumbnails. Click on a thumbnail to see videos for that location. I
  4. For even more context to the videos, especially in North America, you can also open our EarthNC Online Google Earth file which adds charts, tides, weather, and more to your Google Earth world.

Help us Add More Videos

If you’re adding your own videos to YouTube, make sure you use their new location menu during upload so that we can automatically get the locations in the future and use good keywords to indicate their about boating or fishing.
