Spring Boat, Cottage & Outdoor Show

June 10 - 12, 2016

Fri: Noon - 8:00pm / Sat: 10:00am - 7:00pm / Sun: 10:00am - 6:00pm

Welcome to the Spring Boat, Cottage & Outdoor Show at the beautiful Port of Orillia and waterfront parks, Lake Couchiching, Orillia, Ontario, Canada!

New and pre-owned boats of all sizes make up this show, from inflatables to offshore performance to fishing boats to cruisers! Started in the early 1990's for the large pre-owned boat market, this is an established trade show for the boating industry and private sector. This is one of the few shows offering private owners an opportunity to sell their boat. Cost, location, time of year and ease of in-water testing all contribute to the success of the Spring Boat, Cottage & Outdoor Show!

The show also features a variety of marine, cottage and outdoor products, land vendors and marine safety demonstrations.

 

Discover Boating’s Hands-On Skills Training

Nothing beats hands-on experience for improving your boating skills or learning new ones. This year's show features hands-on, on-the-water boating workshops. Discover Boating presents two different Hands-on Skills Training CLINICS for powerboaters at the Orillia Spring In-Water Boat Show on June 10-12, 2016. Delivered by experienced professional on-water educators who are trained in the Discover Boating Hands-On Skills Training approach, our aim is to make boating more accessible, safe and enjoyable!

There's something for everyone — from absolute beginners to seasoned skippers! You'll learn from experts: All sessions are taught by skilled on-water trainers.

Each event is 60 minutes long and registration is free. Participation is limited to four persons per boat. These effective learning events will help develop skills that will last a lifetime and add significantly to your boating safety and enjoyment. Please note that to participate you must already have your PCOC (Pleasure Craft Operator Card).

Remember: These courses have limited spaces available during the show, so be sure to register in advance to book your space. Participation is on a first-come, first-served basis; and at no charge, we expect spaces to fill up quickly!
