San Diego International Boat Show Makes a Splash on June 20-23

The sight of cruise ships, sail boats, and kayaks in our beautiful bays and seashores is one of the reasons why San Diego is America's Finest City!

This summer Progressive Insurance brings to us the annual San Diego International Boat Show which allows in novice, as well as the experts to learn about the latest and greatest in Boats and Accessories, Superyachts, Stand Up Paddling, and On-Water Education. More than 100 vessels, from entry-level family cruisers and personal watercraft to luxury motor and sailing yachts, plus a new selection of superyachts, will be docked in the marina and parked on land for visitors to browse, board and buy.
