Free boat rides are offered all day, lasting 45 minutes and leaving on the hour every hour between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. There will be power boats under 30 feet, sailboats, cruisers and even fishing trawlers, so that you can pick the boat that fits your lifestyle and interest.
Activities and hands-on clinics will be offered with industry professionals to teach interested participants the basics of docking, anchoring, rigging, knot-tying, and technology. Get Out & Boat Fest also includes seminars on buying a boat, boating safety, chartering a boat and even salmon fishing.
Get Out & Boat Fest is fun for the whole family! Kids can play on a toy boat building from the Center for Wooden Boats and enjoy live music from Dave Calhoun, a Jimmy Buffet cover artist.
According to a press release, “The second annual Get Out & Boat Fest aims to increase public awareness of boating by offering opportunities for people to get out on the water, experience boating firsthand, and educate and inform non-boaters so they can learn all about the boating lifestyle.”
