Re: 2019 BLUE WILD Ocean Adventure Expo coming April 27 & 28, 2019

The 12th Annual Blue Wild Ocean Adventure Expo, an action-packed, watersports expo for ocean lovers of all ages, returns to the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center April 27-28, 2019.

Produced by Sheri Daye, a spearfishing world record holder, The Blue Wild is South Florida’s premier ocean adventure expo which features one of the most diverse and passionate crowds of exhibitors, speakers, and attendees.

Daye originally conceived the event as a fundraiser for Twins Palms, a center for developmentally disabled adults in Boca Raton, Fla. where her brother attends. She transformed her passion for freediving and created a must-attend, educational and entertaining event where attendees can learn the latest techniques, shop cool products, and socialize with like-minded ocean lovers.

Spanning 65,000 square feet, the two-day, indoor event attracts 5,000 attendees and over 150 exhibitors which specialize in fishing and spearfishing, scuba and freediving, surfing and paddle boarding, marine art, underwater photo and video, adventure travel, beach apparel, boats, personal watercraft, and more.

Daily educational seminars and workshops are scheduled throughout the weekend and taught by world-class experts and celebrity-speakers like TV/movie personality Manny Puig; Chris Gillette, underwater photographer and GatorBoy; Vinnie LaSorsa, fisherman and Captain for Jimmy Buffet; Ryan Myers, National Spearfishing Champion; Dr. Daryl Wong, expert spearo and custom speargun builder, and many other personalities. Topics include fishing stories, travel advice, freediving instruction, photography tips, fish filleting demos, speargun rigging, knot-tying, and more. The popular Kids Zone offers free face painting, art classes, and crab races – something for the whole family.

“The Blue Wild is known for its high-energy crowds and fun vibe,” said Sheri Daye. “This show is like a big party for ocean lovers, and we attract a diverse crowd of locals, visitors, experts, and exhibitors from all over the world who flock to Fort Lauderdale for its desirable and central location.”

Returning exhibitors include Austin’s Diving Center, Bass Pro, Big Dog Tackle, Chaos Fishing, Contender Boats, Divers Direct, PADI, Reef Photo and Video, Wong Spearguns, and many more. The Expo is pleased to welcome new exhibitors such as Fishing Nosara, Pompano Beach Marine Center/Grady White Boats, Riva Motorsports, Surf World, Sea Tow Fort Lauderdale, and Tropic Star Lodge. The show is sponsored by Flanigan’s Seafood Bar and Grill which has its roots in South Florida and likes to promote the same ideals as the Expo -- family fun and saltwater adventure.

Entry is $20 at the door (children 12 and under are free) and includes a free goodie bag (while supplies last) and free entry to the Saturday night After-Party which takes place in the second-floor VIP lounge.
