Getting to and from the show

Parking and Transportation Options:  Come to the show by land or sea! With the popularity of park-and-ride in 2017— an estimated 80 percent of attendees parked at designated offsite locations and traveled to the show via shuttle bus or water taxi—the Progressive Insurance Miami International Boat Show has streamlined its transportation plan with even more efficiency including:

Water Taxis

Water taxis will run from 9 am–7 pm on all show days. The last inbound to Marine Stadium is 4:30 pm.  Final departure to Bayfront Park and AmericanAirlines Arena is at 7pm.
