    Fall Events

    Many MarineMax stores have end of season events in the fall. MarineMax Fort Myers, where they boat all year long, has a Docktails Summer Finale! event which celebrates the last monthly summer Docktails series. MarineMax Baltimore holds its annual Wine on the Water event where MarineMax customers can enjoy sampling gourmet cheeses and sip delectable wines. In Wayzata Minnesota, MarineMax hosts the JJHD Wakesurf & Wakeboard Throwdown featuring pro wake surfer and former Olympian Tommy Czeshin. Many northern stores have fall color cruises where they take in awesome beauty of the local fall foliage. Check with your local MarineMax to find out what fall events they are holding.
  • Getaways!®

    The weather is cooler and clearer which make fall Getaways!® so special. MarineMax Lake Ozark ends their boating season with an annual golf and shopping Getaway!® to Old Kinderhook. In Dallas, MarineMax hosts a Changes in Latitude Getaway!® to the British Virgin Islands where customers enjoy the beautiful tropical waters on MarineMax Vacations exclusive power catamarans.

  • An aerial view of Chicago, with numerous boats docked near the coastline


    Sterngating is an up and coming activity that you and your friends can participate in on your own. Find a local sport franchise that has a facility near or on the water. Organize a trip and enjoy boating and your favorite team all in the same day. If you don’t have a location to sterngate within your boating range, host a sterngating party at your marina or at a raft-up and watch the game on your boats televisions. See a list of sterngating sporting venues here.
