THE FOLLOWING IS A PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SEATTLE BOAT SHOW
For anyone who has ever said, ‘the fishing was good, it was the catching that was bad’, there is help on the way! The Seattle Boat Show, presented by Union Marine, is back in person, February 4-12, 2022 and with a stellar lineup of free in-person fishing, crabbing and shrimping seminars. There is no better way for an angler to improve his or her success on the water than investing in an hour or two at one of the show’s seminars. New for 2022, is an online option in addition to the in-person seminars.
All in-person seminars take place at Lumen Field Event Center and are open to all show attendees on a first-come basis until seating is full. Attendees who can’t make all the in-person seminars on their list, or wish to revisit a favorite seminar, can watch the complete library of nine show days’ worth of boating and fishing seminars from the comfort of home for three months post-show. The $99 dollar seminar ticket package includes multi-day admission to the show (a $36 value) and a boatload of goodies, including a copy of the Waggoner Guide.
Boat Show U classes will be offered as online webinars and are available to watch live (online only) during the show or on-demand until May 15, 2022 with a seminar package ticket. This is an incredible value add to the ticket as Boat Show U courses were previously $55 each.

Also new for 2022, the on-water portion of the show will no longer be at Chandler’s Cove and will be held at the Port of Seattle’s Bell Harbor Marina, making visiting both locations much more convenient for showgoers. Bell Harbor Marina is less than two miles from Lumen Field so attendees will spend less time in transit between the two locations and have more time for cruising the show. A free shuttle will run continuously between both locations.
Single day ticket: $18
