  • Check out the famous Miss GEICO race boat (a catamaran that reaches speeds of 180 mph!) before heading to the Water Club Lounge to relax and unwind.
  • The show’s educational opportunities are unparalleled. Boaters of all experience levels can take advantage of on-the-water workshops at Discover Boating’s Hands-On-Skill Training series. Attendees can also participate in daily on-land seminars covering a variety of topics including DIY sessions at Fred’s Shed, plus enjoy free powerboat and sailboat rides on Long Island Sound.
  • Take a stand-up paddleboard (SUP) or kayaking tour, enroll in SUP yoga classes and take a test ride on Sealegs amphibious boat, which transforms from an all-terrain vehicle to an ocean-going powerboat at the push of a button. Register early to reserve a space; changing rooms and towels provided.
  • Fun for the Little Skippers. Kids can build a nautical masterpiece at the Toy Boat Building tent, get their feet wet navigating a mini-lake in their own paddleboat, transform their persona with face painting, plus meet and take photos with Dora the Explorer.
