The 2013 Progressive Insurance Atlantic City Boat Show will be held at the Atlantic City Convention Center in Atlantic City, NJ from February 6 - 10. Hundreds of new boats for all budgets and lifestyles will be on display, including luxury motor and sailing yachts, sport fishers, performance boats, and personal watercraft.
Other attractions include the new Swampmaster Gator Show, where visitors can watch expert gator handler Jeff Quattrocchi catch an 8-foot, 200-pound alligator. Attendees can put their boating skills to the test with the Power Boat Docking Challenge and the ASOS Nautis Boating Simulator, and meet Captain Dave Marciano from National Geographic Channel’s Wicked Tuna.
Boaters and fishermen wanting to learn new tricks can head to the hands-on clinics, see demonstrations and get one-on-one advice at Fred’s Shed Interactive Education Center and Fishing University produced by the Recreational Fishing Alliance. Children can paddle a small boat in the Kids’ Boating Pool and build their own model boat at the Kids’ Create-a-Boat center.
Tickets are $15 for adults, and children 15 and under are admitted free when accompanied by an adult. For more information, advance tickets, show news, discounts and giveaways, visit ACBoatShow.com.
