Central Florida’s Premier Boating Event Comes Ashore
The 2019 Orlando Boat Show returns to the Orange County Convention Center, August 16-18, featuring more than 500 boats, marine accessories and aquatic-themed activities for all ages. Show visitors can board and enjoy deals on hundreds of boats from the region’s top dealers and marine accessories and electronics. Whether you’re thinking of getting into boating, or you’re a long-time enthusiast, The Orlando Boat Show has something for everyone. “We take fun to new depths with interactive features appropriate for fishermen, water sports enthusiasts and boaters of all ages and experience levels,” said David Ray, the show’s executive director.
Acquire the secrets behind successful fishing with a seminar by Captain Jim Ross, where attendees can enter to win a complimentary half-day fishing charter. Learn where to go and what to do on Central Florida’s lakes and rivers to ensure a memorable day on the water with Captain Kerry Kline, where attendees can enter to win a complimentary one-year Sea Tow membership. Bass fisherman won’t want to miss an exclusive exchange on where to catch the big one in Central Florida’s Lakes with Capt. Tony Summers, where attendees can enter to win another complimentary half-day fishing charter.
Children attending the show will have the opportunity to catch live trout from an on-site stocked pond. New this year is the opportunity to have a caricature drawn of your child driving a boat by caricature artist Rafael Diaz or experience a face painting transformation by local artist Jacqueline Howe. In addition, fishermen of all ages can challenge their tenacity by reeling in a bull dolphin in the virtual saltwater fishing simulator.
