About


Maryland Yacht Club covers over eight acres of beautiful waterfront at the end of Fairview Beach Road in Pasadena Maryland. It is situated at the entrance to Rock Creek and commands a grand view of the Patapsco River on one side and Rock Creek on the other. Maryland Yacht Club has great facilities and social events open to all boaters - we are much more than a marina!

Slips:120

Approach


The Maryland Yacht Club boasts well-protected fixed height slips with deep water and is known as a convenient “hurricane hole” near Baltimore. Entering Rock Creek, you can pass on either side of the white rocks. You need to honor the green “3” as there are submerged pilings near the shoreline right before the yacht club. Rock Creek has a mandatory 6 kt speed limit which is enforced. Once past the Green “3”, you can turn into the Maryland Yacht Club, water depth is 10-12’. In addition to its safe-haven status, it’s also a secure location in and out of the water. The entire facility is gated and secure, so boaters can rest assured that their property will be protected. Guests will also have access to the many amenities on-site, including a pool overlooking the Patapsco River, a picnic pavilion with table barbecue pits, a great clubhouse and a full bar. Last, but not least, the Maryland Yacht Club has great rates for both gas and diesel! Memberships to the Yacht Club are also available.

We spent the summer at MYC. The staff is outstanding. They were very helpful and readily replied to any requests. The pool is nice with a great view of the Patapsco River. The restaurant was only open on the weekends but the food was good and the service was great. We will definitely be back!

Beautiful location just off the Bay with deep water! Great clubhouse and food. People were extremely friendly, helpful and amazing! Our month long stay was so good that we decided to become members.

The staff were friendly and accommodating to our needs. They even came in on their day off to sell us fuel, Plus, there's a fuel discount of 10 cents with Boats US. Free laundry. Reasonable rates and very protected from weather. I recommend this marina!

Thank you Walt! It was a pleasure hosting you during your stay.

We stayed early OCT; def off-season. No one around but good communication via dock-wa app. Restrooms & showers & laundry area very clean and upgraded. Only complaint is massive amounts of guano on the dock and finger piers & our hose was too short to reach all the way down the pier to the aft where we board the boat. Sadly we’d left our mat on the dock at previous marina. Probly not an issue during season when there’s crew. Definitely would return

Marina Response:
Hi Laurie. Thanks for the positive review. Re: The guano - try as we might to stay ahead of it, but ducks and seagulls seem to return every night. We try to hose it down periodically as staffing allows. Cheers!

Really nice facility and very welcoming yacht club. Wooden fixed docks in good repair. Fuel dock with gas and diesel convenient off of river, right at mouth of Rock Creek. Excellent full bar open on weekends. We stayed at a dock for a Seven Seas Cruising Association weekend, and they could not have been more gracious.

Thank you John! We aim to provide a pleasurable and friendly experience! Hope to see you again!

Excellent marina, very friendly and convenient. People are great and really a great help. Only thing, there was a bit of a lack of communication, hard to get return calls and info.

Marina Response:
Larry - thank you for the five stars. We do take some pride in communications and sorry to hear some angst about that. We do program Dockwa to send out a comprehensive email three days before your arrival that includes slip assignment, slip map, wi-fi info, and other pertinent info you may need. Sorry if that didn't make it through. Return calls is sometimes challenging with limited staff but a few folks monitor messages and should be able to get back to you with info. Our apologies if some of that was delyed.

MTOA rendezvous 9/23 was great at Maryland YC. Chantelle the Club Manager was fantastic. When trees in the neighborhood took out the power she made a 10 mile drive to Dunkin’ Donuts to bring coffee for a 100 people to keep the morning schedule on time. She moved tables, tended bar and helped in the kitchen. Plus keeping the club running. We look forward to going back to MYC!

Marina Response:
Leo - thank you so much for those kind words. We really do try to give our guests a great experience.

The marina has a nice location, but it is getting a little 'long in the tooth' in respect to docks & heads. We had a nice meeting over the 5 days on site. Will look forward to returning sometime in the future.

Older facility but clean. Deep water (10’+) on C dock. Free laundry. would give 5 stars if clubhouse was open more days and a grocery store was within biking distance.

Marina Response:
Mike - we appreciate your visit! We do have deep water throughout the marina and into our creek (12'). Our apologies that we do have a couple of down days at the clubhouse mid week. But we hope we exceeded your expectations once we were open.

The staff was wonderful the docks were in good shape. We had a nice refreshing swim in the pool and overall a very good time. A bonus is that the washer and dryer were free, and the showers are nice and air conditioned conditioned.

Staff was totally outstanding in spite of no electric or water due to storm. Chantelle and staff were just totally awesome with excellent & pleasant service. Boaters bathouse could definitely use some TLC. Mens restroom in Clubhouse needs more attention. Wall disenser handsoaps were always empty and the portable bottles were empty for 2 days +. Overall a great experience.

We were there for a MTOA Rendezvous. They couldn't have been more helpful. Allowing us to come in a day early. Dealing with a power outage. The staff was amazing especially Chantell.

Nice place. Pleasant people. Fixed docks, hard to get on and off with rising and falling tides. Docks lost power a few times, not the fault of the marina. Lots of thunder storms and lightning.

Marina Response:
Thank you Dutch and MTOAers for being patient through the power outage. Crazy weather during your stay for sure. You guys marched on with your itinerary despite the inconvenience. It helped when we fed the power crew! 😉

OMG!!! We were there for the Wounded Warriors Day on the Bay event. Fabulous is not an adequate word for the facility or the event. MYC knows how to 'put on the Ritz'. The facility is clean and modern. As part of the boats from Great Oak Yacht Club, I couldn't have asked for a better reception or ability to participate. Thank you!!!

As a past member, the club did a fantastic job hosting the Wounded Warriors event. With over 60 transient boats the services were staffed and accommodations were top notch. Thanks Commodore Carl, and the rest of the MYC Crew for all your hospitality.

The best! We loved MD Yacht Club! The people were the nicest we’ve encountered in a while and not just one but ALL! Everyone we got a chance to talk to was just wonderful. They did not hesitate when we needed to extend to a month from 2 weeks! Definitely looking into getting a membership here!

Thank you Andrew. It was great to meet you and you are welcome back anytime! Safe travels back south for the winter. “What a long strange trip it’s been” … Keep on Truckin’

The club was closed on Wednesday so there was no reply to my radio call. We tied up at the fuel dock but found no one around. A member came by to see who we were and apologized for the lack of response. The grounds are very nice but the building was closed.

Maryland Yacht Club has been in existence for 115 years. I hope tehy will be around for another 115. The Corona pandemic and bad management, which included Oasis for a time, has resulted in a much reduced membership and deferred maintenance. That said, the volunteer staff, paid staff and members made as feel welcome.

This amazing volunteer run marina is an amazing stop with great facilities and wonderful people. Spent the weekend here and due to weather needed flexibility they gave it. These are fixed docks but the tide is minimal and for our boat were just about perfect. If you dinghy about in the bay there are some places to go visit. It is secluded and quiet while still being accessible. Great job to all there and thank you for a wonderful stay.

Very well maintained grounds , incredibly friendly staff, prices were down right cheap for food and beverage . The view of the bay is amazing by the pool . I was concerned about the first the slip I received , I called the office and spoke with Karla and she made an immediate switch to something much more favorable for me . My family didn’t want to leave , can’t say enough about this trip and the staff. The blonde lady bar tender who was basically always on site :) was so friendly and bubbly , chef Dave was very friendly also and took good care of us .

Really nice people and a reasonable price. Docks are fixed, wood and the ducks frequent them at night, as evidenced by their trail of white. That said, the marina is well protected from all winds and the staff is very accommodating. The showers and toilets are clean and a small laundry room is available. The dock price is half what you will pay just 20 miles south in the Annapolis area. Restaurants and groceries are about a mile walk.

Very convenient getting an email the day before with a map of the docks and what slip we were to go into. The dock boys were average at best knowing what lines to take first and what direction to take them. Facilities were okay but showing wear and not many updates. Reasonably priced.longtime
