There are just a few days to the start of the Vancouver Boat Show, and our own Semiahmoo Marina staff will be manning a booth, newly-designed brochures and signature banner in hand. This year the Vancouver Boat Show runs from Wednesday, January 20th, 10 am to 8 pm, through Saturday, January 23, and Sunday, January 24, 10 am to 5 pm. If you’ve got the time, be sure to stop by and say hi to Doug and Sally at booth 27 on the upper concourse. This year they’ll be sharing their booth with our neighbors, Semiahmoo Inn and Resort and as usual, the show will be at BC Place.
This year, there will also be a floating boat show located at Granville Island with free bus and ferry shuttle service to carry folks back & forth from the main exhibit area with more than 65 in-water exhibits will be available for inspection. If you’re looking to get out on the water yourself, there will be free boat rides provided by Discovery Boating. You can sign up for a free 30-minute sail or power boat trip.
In addition to boat rides, and new boat exhibits, visitors will have a chance to take classes, attend seminars, and listen to experts in everything marine from mechanics to navigation to cooking. Don’t miss it!
