Take advantage of deals, seminars, and more on the Ottawa Boat Show Digital Marketplace!

OBS eBlast

Feb 25, 2021

For the past 45 years, the Ottawa Boat Show has been the unofficial launch of boating season in the Ottawa Region, welcoming hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of visitors annually. Unfortunately, due to the ongoing concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the organizers decided to postpone.

But good news: the team behind the Ottawa Boat Show has launched what they’re calling a “Digital Marketplace”. It’s an online tool for you to network and interact with exhibitors from the comfort and safety of your home.  

You’ll be able to find dealer and exhibitor information, photos and videos, on-demand seminars, special promotions, and more. They’ve made it easy for you to contact any exhibitor at any time – by email, website, or social media! 

The best part? You’ve got until Friday, March 19 to access the Digital Marketplace… way more convenient than the typical four-day show!  You can visit the Ottawa Boat Show Digital Marketplace any time! You can also follow the Ottawa Boat Show on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for your chance to enter contests and win great prizes all month long!

In the Marketplace you will find Canadian Yachting free subscription information as well as an opportunity to learn about and order the new PORTS guides

The latest data shows pontoon boats now represent around 30% of all new boats sold in Canada and it’s easy to understand why – with their interior space and tremendous versatility, pontoons are near-perfect family runabouts.

Cruising Georgian Bay’s 30,000 Islands: Canada’s Freshwater Paradise for Boaters

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
