2024 Seattle Boat Show Dates Set; 177 Fishing, Other Seminars Planned


The 2024 Seattle Boat Show cruises into town on Friday, Feb 2 and sails on through Saturday, Feb. 10, 2024. It’s the largest show on the West Coast with two locations: indoors at Lumen Field Event Center — with hundreds of vessels of all kinds and three acres of accessories and services — and on the water at the Port of Seattle’s Bell Harbor Marina.

Free Boating and Fishing Seminars

The show has always been known for its extensive line up of boating, fishing and Boat Show U seminars. For 2024, the show is back to the pre-pandemic formula of three stages for the in-person fishing and boating seminars. This means there will be 177 seminars to choose from in 2024 — 107 more than 2023 — covering everything from boating safety, fishing techniques, navigation, cruising and the latest innovations, technology, and more.

Boat Show University (BSU)

More in-depth boating courses for a fee are available through Boat show University — either in the form of a single day Boat Show University Course or a 9-Day BSU Package. The single-day courses include a 2-hour course, single day admission to the show and, NEW for 2024, a complimentary beer or wine at the BSU Experts reception held every evening from 4p – 6pm* in the new Seahawks Tunnel Club. The team at the Waggoner Cruising Guide will feature an expert guest every evening.

*drink service ends one hour before show close

The 9-Day Seminar Package comes with it all. Admission to all show days, every Boat Show University Course, 1 complimentary beer or wine each evening at the BSU Experts Reception, and online access to the recorded BSU courses until May 1st

Other Features

Fun features include wine and beer nights, Women’s Day (Mon. Feb 5), Twofer Tuesday Tickets, Dogs on Deck Thursday and a special Kids Aqua Zone full of family-friendly activities.
