10 Reasons to Visit the Toronto Boat Show in January

North America’s largest indoor boat show docks at the Enercare Centre from January 17 – 26, 2020 with an impressive array of 1,200 new boats on display, educational seminars, lifestyle programming and lots of fun family activities.

Here are 10 things to do at the Toronto Boat Show this January...

1. See the World's Largest Indoor Lake
It's an engineering marvel and the World's Largest Indoor Lake is one of the highlights at the boat show! Visitors can grab a seat on shore to watch professional wakeboarders, wakeskaters and waterskiers perform tricks and flips; or join the fun and take a ride in canoe, kayak, or paddleboat. All free with admission.

2. ​Try Wakeboarding
Try your hand at wakeboarding right at the show! Expert instructors from Boarder Pass show you the ropes on the world’s largest indoor lake.

3. Watch Twiggy the Water-Skiing Squirrel
Twiggy the amazing, world-famous water-skiing squirrel performs again in 2020. Fans around the world go ‘nuts’ for Twiggy, who not only entertains with her special talent but is also an advocate for water safety. 

4. See the Indoor Wakeboarding Championships
For 2020, the Championship has been elevated to World Series status by the World Wake Association. Watch the top pros in wakeboarding compete for World Series points and $10,000 cash.

5. Crazy Mad Scientist Water Ski Show
Don’t miss the Crazy Mad Scientist Water Ski Show science experiment daily at The Lake!

6. Fish at the Kids Trout Pond
Catch a real fish and enter to win a Lund boat package at the Kids Trout Pond – located in the food court.

7. Remote-Controlled Sailing Regatta
Catch all the excitement as radio-controlled sailboats compete for a podium finish on the world’s largest indoor lake. Watch as these miniature boats race around a floating course, and to make it more realistic and challenging, they will have to navigate in simulated wind conditions powered by giant fans. 

8. World Championship Indoor Sea Flea Races
The coolest single-person hydroplane boats are often DIY-constructed and powered by a small motor. Compact, colourful and fun to race, these creative boats that were hugely popular in the 70s will be making a big splash on the Lake.

9. Stand Up Paddleboard Races
Catch the excitement with Stand Up Paddleboard races on the world’s largest indoor lake! One day only - Saturday, January 25.

10. See the Great Canadian Fish Tank
Providing a fish-eye's view of how fish react to different lures and techniques, this 40-foot long aquarium is filled with 5,000 gallons of water and stocked with native Ontario marine life.

Of course, there's a lot more happening at the boat show and you can find out all about this year's highlights at www.torontoboatshow.com.
