Something for everyone
Start planning your summer by stopping by the Marina Stand, where you can get a glimpse of the various marinas in Quebec and the neighbouring provinces. For 2011, the Quebec Nautical Destinations stand has been completely revamped, now offering visitors a profusion of premium destinations where you can dive into your favourite nautical sports.
And don’t forget to stop by the Quebec Maritime Association’s booth, the best way to discover what the water can do for you. Whether you’re considering buying your first boat or are looking to discover the best spots to get wet and wild, the QMA will be happy to answer all your questions. And don’t forget to pick up your free copy of the 2010 edition of the Nautiguide.

The various marine sport associations will also be on site providing information on activities such as diving, kayaking, sailing, waterskiing and canoeing.
The Boat Show is also a great place to pick up the marine charts that allow you to safely navigate our waterways and pass the boating license exam to obtain your pleasure craft operator card, mandatory since September 15, 2009, with the Canadian Safe Boating School.
Hot on the heels of last year’s successful fashion show, the Yamaha Theatre (level 200) will be presenting the new 2011 line of nautical clothing and accessories, under the direction of Ms. Rollande St-Amant, sport fashion expert. The show will be held several times throughout the weekend:
