Head over to Oak Harbor Marina on Whidbey Island for the third annual Jamboree by the Sea and Swap Meet. Hosted in collaboration with the Deception Pass Sail and Power Squadron, this Jamboree and Swap Meet will offer free activities for the kids, free food for the family, and equipment demos Saturday, April 6 from 1000 to 1600 hours. Activities include flare demonstrations, in-depth boating safety instruction for children, knot-tying tips, crabbing instructions and demos, rides by the North Puget Sound Dragon Boat Club, and more. Stop by the variety of on-site booths, and for your social media page, snap a photo with pirates and their ship.
Step into the Oak Harbor Yacht Club Ballroom for a free two-hour seminar that will cover who, what, when, where, why, and how to shrimp, including equipment to have on board, the best baits to use, an overview of licenses, requirements, and regulations, prime shrimp times and tides, shrimp lore and life cycles, and what to do with them after you catch ‘em!
Across the street from the Jamboree, there will be a marine swap meet from 0800 to 1600 hours. Maybe you can find some of that shrimping equipment you might need.
