The annual boat show comes to downtown Fort Myers Thursday, and organizers expect 2021 to be an even bigger hit than the previous year.

From small skiffs and motor yachts from Centennial Park all the way through the Calusa Convention Center and out to the Yacht Basin, there are over 600 boats representing over 130 manufacturers. Organizer John Good says you can find pretty much anything you might need out on the water.

“Our show is looking bigger than last year, we are totally full inside the convention center,” Good said. “There are lots of engines and electronics and all the good stuff that goes with boating. Plus, as usual, we have tons and tons of boats outside in water and on land.”

Good encourages anyone who needs a ticket to buy one online, because there will be no service fee. Admission is $16 for adults, while children 15 and younger can go for free with a paying adult.
