The second annual Progressive San Francisco Boat Show starts today and runs through Sunday at Pier 48 and McCovey Cove at AT&T Park.

The show features boats, water sports, accessories, hands-on education, boating and sailing lessons on the bay, AT&T Park’s food and beverages and family entertainment.

“The boating industry is on an upward trend in California, and we’re expanding the show’s offerings by 20 percent to meet demand,” National Marine Manufacturers Association West vice president Dave Geoffroy said in a statement.

“We’re excited to collaborate with the Port of San Francisco and AT&T Park to champion the local boating culture and engage new audiences,” Geoffroy said. “The 2015 San Francisco Boat Show is a fully immersive, interactive experience that promises to give attendees of all ages a chance to experience the joys of the boating lifestyle.”
