Boat browsing and buying is just the beginning of the fun at the Progressive Insurance Atlantic City Boat Show, with a variety of attractions for all ages, including the new Swampmaster Gator Show – visitors looking to get wild can take a photo holding a baby gator and watch as expert alligator handler Jeff Quattrocchi catches an 8 ft., 200 lb. alligator. Captain Dave Marciano from National Geographic Channel's Wicked Tuna will also be on hand February 8 and 9 to meet visitors and share his stories on the open seas. And, experienced and beginner boaters can put their boating skills to the test with the Power Boat Docking Challenge and the ASOS Nautis Boating Simulator. Visitors who want to add new tricks to their trade can head to the hands-on clinics, see demonstrations and get one-on-one advice at Fred’s Shed Interactive Learning Center and the Discover Saltwater Fishing Series, produced by the Recreational Fishing Alliance. And there’s no shortage of fun for the kids with a chance to paddle boat indoors at the Kids’ Boating Pool and build their own boat at the Kids’ Create-a-Boat.
