- The PlayStation 3 offers water games at both ends of the spectrum. "Surf's Up," a cartoon-style surfing game, is based on the children's animated movie of the same name. "Deadliest Catch: Seas of Chaos," which is based on the television series of the same name, puts players in control of their own ship as they cruise the Alaskan seas in search of crab. "Wakeboarding HD," a title available exclusively for the Sony PlayStation 3, provides a virtual wakeboarding experience with high-definition graphics.
- The Xbox 360 boasts two separate games inspired by the television show "Deadliest Catch." "Deadliest Catch: Alaskan Storm" and "Deadliest Catch: Seas of Chaos" both revolve around the action-packed job of crab fishing in and around the Bering Sea. Microsoft's Xbox 360 also features a volleyball game that is meant for mature gamers: "Dead or Alive Xtreme 2." The gameplay of "Dead or Alive Xtreme 2" revolves around virtual, bikini-clad women who compete head-to-head in water sports such as jet skiing and volleyball.
- The Nintendo Wii offers several water and boat games meant for children. "Big Beach Sports 2" by THQ and Jet Black Games includes beachfront activities such as surfing, disk golf and soccer. "Vacation Isle: Beach Party" gives players the chance to customize their own avatar and explore the events offered in the simulated beach environment, which includes wakeboarding and surfing. "Wii Water Sports," which offers wakeboarding, jet skiing and wind surfing, lets players utilize the Nintendo Wii's Balance Board peripheral for a more realistic experience. Other games, like "Sega Bass Fishing," let players charter their own boat into a river, lake or ocean for a virtual fishing experience.
- "Extreme Watersports," an offering by HeadGames Publishing, lets players customize the appearance of their avatar before participating in any events. These events include wakeboarding, water ski jump and water ski slalom. "Kelly Slater's Pro Surfer" provides a realistic surfing experience that lets gamers explore various tricks and surfing styles. "Deadliest Catch: Alaskan Storm" is also available for the PC. In this fishing simulator, gamers play the role of a boat captain who must keep his crew alive as they fish the treacherous seas of Alaska.
