To see the latest and greatest in the marine industry, the Toronto Boat Show is a must see event for boating enthusiasts. Entertaining and educational, the Toronto Boat Show is great fun for novices and seasoned sailors alike. Once a year for nine days the Direct Energy Centre, Exhibition Place is home to the Toronto Boat Show. With more than 1,500 boats and hundreds of booths showcasing the latest in engines, electronics, marine gifts and accessories, the Toronto Boat Show is a boat buyer’s paradise. Industry experts will be on hand to offer advice and they will be delighted to answer your questions or swap fish stories. Attend one of over 100 free seminars and don’t forget to drop in at the Safe Boating Centre, a hands-on, interactive exhibit featuring daily demonstrations on navigation, choosing the right PFD or Lifejacket, and a complete display of safety equipment needed for your boat. One of the highlights of the Toronto Boat Show is the world’s largest indoor lake created with over 1 million gallons of water. The Ricoh Coliseum’s lake will host many on-the-water activities including fishing, sailing, windsurfing, personal watercraft, kayaking, canoeing, and boat handling demonstrations.

For those of you who prefer your lakes outdoors, the Toronto In-Water Boat Show at Ontario Place is the one for you. It features more than 250 power and sail boats, Pleasure Craft Operating Card testing, live entertainment, contests, information, resources, and expert advice for boaters of all abilities. This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in boating, planning to purchase their first boat, or long time boat owners to learn the ins and outs of buying a boat and boat ownership including boat financing, boating courses, and safety information.
