Vancouver International Boat Show

Comments 25 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The 54th annual Vancouver International Boat Show cruises into BC Place and around Granville Island this month with demos, activities, rides, skills training, and more.


Vancouver International Boat Show

Western Canada’s largest consumer boating event will have hands-on skills training at Granville Island, in-water boat displays and free boat rides. Take the free water shuttle between the floating show at the Granville Island Maritime Market and the main entrance of BC Place to experience more of the show.

Browse the Discover Boating Centre and learn about sport fishing in BC, and SailFest will have the latest sailboats, gear, and destinations. Check out the full seminar lineup, get some boat buying tips, and get inspired with coastal cooking demos. The Kids’ Zone will entertain the little ones while you get your pleasure craft operator card.
