Kids’ Fishing Clinics by Hook the Future
For aspiring anglers ages 4 to 16, the Kids’ Fishing Clinics offer instruction in basic fishing techniques. Presented by non-profit Hook the Future, the Kids’ Fishing Clinics offer interactive instruction in selecting tackle and lures, casting a rod and reel, reeling in a fish and fishing ethics. Upon completion of all learning stations, participants are eligible to win special prizes.
Hosted by Captain Don Dingman, the clinics take place in the Meyer Amphitheater on Saturday, March 30 at noon and 2 p.m. and Sunday, March 31 at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Reservations are not required and participation is free with show admission.
IGFA School of Sportfishing Seminars
The International Game Fish Association (IGFA) is hosting its highly-acclaimed School of Sportfishing seminars onsite during the show. Featuring instruction by some of the best captains and anglers in South Florida, the seminars share the skills, information and techniques necessary for avid anglers to maximize success on the water. Reservations are not required and participation is free with show admission. To view the seminar schedule, visit PBboatshow.com and click on “Seminars & Classes” under the “Attend” menu.
A “show within a show,” the AquaZone, is an exciting and engaging attraction designed to give show-goers an upfront and personal experience with in-water demonstrations of a variety of water sports and innovative products.
Previously held in a pop-up, 40,000-gallon fresh water pool, the AquaZone’s new open-area location on the Intracoastal Waterway will allow product demonstrations to reach higher speeds and go for longer distances. Located at the south end of the show, it will feature in-water demos, hands-on testing, contests and prizes on all show days during show hours. Presented by Informa U.S. Boat Shows and Nautical Ventures Marine Superstore, the area also will serve as a one-stop learning center for water sports and product information.
Take Home a New Pet
For the second consecutive year, guests at the Palm Beach International Boat Show will be able to adopt dogs and cats right on site, thanks to the show’s partnership with Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control. Last year, the organization found safe, new homes for 11 cats and dogs at the four-day event.
For attendees looking to experience the show as a VIP guest, the Windward Club offers the luxuries of a premium open bar, gourmet hors d'oeuvres, happy hours, and exclusive events in a unique indoor and outdoor lounge setting.
