SAN DIEGO—Boat lovers everywhere regale for the return of San Diego International Boat Show from June 6-9. This year’s show will take place in Spanish Landing Park East and will be sponsored in part by Port of San Diego.
Superyachts have been taking over the waters and this year’s San Diego International Boat Show will appeal to those who are “dreaming big.” Big boat selections, meaning yachts measuring 80 feet or more, have been expanded. There will be more than 150 boats on site to peruse.
If big boats are a little out of sight for the time being, there will also be several vendors selling the latest nautical gear, gadgetry and other marine accessories at every budget. A full listing of the exhibitors will be available closer to the show, but several big names in the marine industry can be expected to attend.
San Diego, as one of the ultimate coastal destinations, also hosts a variety of delicious restaurants nearby to check out after hitting up the show.
Entry prices are $15 for adults, $10 for military, and free for children 12 and under. The show’s hours of operation are as follows: Thurs. & Fri. noon-7 p.m; Sat. 10 a.m.-7 p.m.; Sun. 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
Spanish Landing Park East is located at 3900 N. Harbor Drive. Plenty of parking will be available, as well, as the Port of San Diego’s $3 Waterfront Summer Shuttle to get visitors to and from the boat show.
