Jordan Cormack

The Detroit Boat Show, sponsored by Progressive, offers a wealth of delightful adventures and festivities for all attendees. This boating event will be open to the public at Huntington Place (formerly Cobo Center) from January 27th to February 4th. 

Get ready for exclusive meet-and-greet sessions with Captain Sandy from Below Deck Mediterranean. Attendees are in for a riveting time at this event, where they will have the opportunity to ask Captain Sandy questions, snap a picture with her, and get a souvenir autograph. 

The Detroit Boat Show offers a variety of attractions, including paddle painting, a Tiki Bar with live music, an informative sustainability exhibit, and a boater safety education class. And, in the spirit of raising awareness about Aquatic Invasive Species, the AIS Booth will be handing out free T-shirts!

Enthusiasts of both land and water activities are in for a treat at the Detroit Boat Show. Alongside water-based events, attendees can enjoy playing lawn games, shopping for nautical goods at the Michigan Boatique, checking out an exhibit on the history of bathing suits, and witnessing live sand sculpting. 

Amid numerous attractions for adults, the Detroit Boat Show consistently goes above and beyond to appeal to children. Kids attending with their parents can make bracelets, play in Water Rollerz, stamp cloth backpacks, and catch a glimpse of Owlie from NOAA.

This year’s boat show comes with an impressive list of exhibitors. Seajay Marine, Devils Lake Water Sports, Inc., and the United States Coast Guard AuxDiv 18 are just a handful of the outstanding exhibitors awaiting visitors.

Tickets for the Detroit Boat Show are $14 for adults, while children 12 and under can attend for free when accompanied by an adult. Also, active police, firefighters, and military members can enjoy the boating event free of charge.
