The 2024 Seattle Boat Show cruises into town on Friday, February 2 and sails on through Saturday, February 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. A free shuttle runs continuously between both locations.

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 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 4 – 6 p.m. in the new Seahawks Tunnel Club. The team at the Waggoner cruising guide will feature an expert guest every evening.

The 9-Day Seminar Package comes with it all: admission to all show days, every Boat Show University Course, a complimentary beer or wine each evening at the BSU Experts Reception, and online access to the recorded BSU courses until May 1, 2024.
