Panama City Beach and boating just kinda go together – there are loads of options, from fishing, diving or cruising on the Gulf of Mexico to exploring the St. Andrew Bay, or local lakes and rivers. You can happily spend a day anchored at Shell Island, or use the Intracoastal Waterway to navigate to nearby destinations. In short, if you’ve discovered Panama City Beach you’ve discovered a boater’s paradise.

Coming to Aaron Bessant Park on March 3rd through 5th, the show couldn’t have landed in a better spot. Come see boat displays from all major manufacturers as they show off the latest boating innovations, as well as fun size boats like kayaks and standup paddleboards. It doesn’t stop there, though, because everything you need to fulfill a waterman’s dream will be on display, from boat-friendly clothing, to coolers, sunglasses… you name it! There will even be bicycles, electric carts and outdoor gear (for getting around the marina, presumably).

Come see displays from iconic brands including Boston Whaler, Everglades, Sea Ray, Sea Hunt and more. You’ll be impressed by the new technological features that haven’t been available until now, and there’s no better place to celebrate spring and boating than Panama City Beach.
