Recording Boat Sound Effects by Sound Ideas

Sound Ideas has sent our crew to various watery locales to record the unique sounds made by boats. In Florida we recorded the unusual sounds of a propeller-driven air boat. We also recorded the more subdued sounds of a cabin cruiser and we got up close and personal with the boat's motor. We even recorded a high-powered jet boat - soaking our engineer in the process!
Sound Ideas goes to extremes to get the sounds you need!

Visit us for these and other extreme sound effects!


  1. This reminds me of a featured story in Discovery where a killer whale learned to mimic boat engines. It was a really interesting adaptation although I still don't know what implications that entails.

    1. I've heard that whales are quite intelligent, but wow... that is definitely amazing! I assure you that no whales were used in the recording of these boats! ;)

  2. It is really nice for me to see you and your great hardwork again.Every piece of your work look excellent.Looking forward to learing more from you!
