Kite Photos In Paradise

The Tahina Expedition Does BBQ Island

by Stephen Von Worley on October 15, 2010

If you like piña coladas and gettin’ caught in the rain, hop aboard the good ship Google Maps and set sail for the tropics – with the Tahina Expedition’s kite aerial photography of Panama’s BBQ Island!

BBQ Island

It turns out Google had no high-resolution imagery for the San Blas. So, when you look at most of the islands all you see is a blurry area with no details. But, now (Google just released the imagery in Google Earth last week) when you zoom into the location of BBQ Island (lat/lon: 9.591, -78.67), you see this little dot of high resolution imagery. As you zoom in close you can suddenly see ultra-high resolution detail including palm trees, our little dinghy, and even coconuts on the ground!
