The Jacksonville Marine Association will host its first-ever Jacksonville Spring Boat Show at Metropolitan Park and Marina on April 16, 17, and 18, 2021. The Boat Show will offer three days of water-related fun, family-friendly activities, and educational seminars—as well as once-a-year deals on hundreds of boats and thousands of accessories. Boat Show attendees will be among the first to see and board brand-new models of all types of watercraft, including fishing boats, cruisers, ski boats, pontoons, inflatables, personal watercraft, and more. The Boat Show is sponsored by VyStar Credit Union.
Jacksonville Boat Show highlights include:
· Seminar presentations by Capt. Rick Murphy and Brie Gabrielle from Florida Insider Fishing Report on topics including throwing a cast net, fighting a fish, and dissecting a water column.
· A wide range of food trucks offering diverse dining, snacks, and beverages.
· Live music on Saturday and Sunday
· Kids’ fishing clinics on Saturday and Sunday from 11 am – 2 pm. The first 150 kids to complete the clinic each day will receive a rod and reel combo courtesy of Barracuda Batteries by Continental.
