Unlike airplanes, boats offer travelers overseas transportation without the hassle of pilots reading their memoirs over the loudspeaker for six hours and meals consisting solely of ketchup packets. Feel nourished with the modern luxuries of marine vehicles with today's Groupon: for $5, you get a one-day admission to the 57th Annual Baltimore Boat Show on January 27 through 30 at the Baltimore Convention Center (up to a $10 value). Young enthusiasts 15 and under get in free with a paid adult.
Sailing to the top of the ranks as Maryland's longest-running indoor boating event, the Baltimore Boat Show swashbuckles and spellbinds seafaring families and cabin mates with more than 500 powerboats, 150 manufacturers, and more. High-sea celebrities scheduled to appear include the Miss GEICO race boat, a four-time world champion marine machine, and the Discovery Channel's Deadliest Catch star and crustacean whisperer Russell Newberry, who promises to meet and greet fans. Peruse rows of marine-purveying exhibitors displaying high-class 50-foot yachts, small personal watercraft, canoes designed to navigate flooded basements, fishing boats, and more. Speakers, vendors, and giveaways will also delight nautical voyeurs young and old.
Though the Baltimore Boat Show sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
- It doesn't matter if you are looking for a sportfishing or bass boat, a pontoon or a runabout, a sailboat or a kayak you'll find it at the Baltimore Boat Show, a beacon in the dark, dreary months of winter. – Robin Van Auken, NorthCentralPA.com
- We enjoyed the show. It's great to be able to look at so many boats at one time, and having the show indoors makes it easier. – A Goldstar member on 1/25/2010
