Since its inception, the Club like a great ship, has been able to survive wars, storms and financial problems because its members have always responded to the call for help.

Members, both past and present, should truly be proud to say that they have been a part of Point Independence Yacht Club and have helped mold its great history.

In closing, I want to say that it is not only a privilege but an honor to be your Commodore and to be part of this great family.


The current is strong when moving from Cape Code Canal into the Onset Channel. After making that transition, follow the buoys.

Reservations were easy and confirmed quickly. We were met at the dock and assisted with tie up upon arrival and departure. Will go back!

Dock master sent me to mooring that put my 46’ vessel around... hiess they over booked their mooring field. Dockmaster then leaves immediately cause its time to get off work and never bothered to leave code for bathroom or showers! Yep... real nice

All we did was grab a mooring. The only interaction with staff was via VHF to report the mooring number. We were directed to pay via Dockwa. PIYC no longer offers launch service so we did not go ashore, did not use any PIYC facilities. It turns out that there is an Onset Town launch that would have provided service but PIYC did not tell us. No pick-up stick, single pennant, pennant messy. The best we can say is that the mooring held.

Great help at the fuel dock. The person there led me to our slip even thougb, at 4 pm, there was noone around in the office. We got the gate code from our slip neighbor just before he left for the day, otherise we woukd have been stuck without a way onto our dock when we left to YC to go to dinner. But we love PIYC and Onset and have been coming every year for more than 25 years.

Awesome stay at Point Independence Yacht Club. Stayed July 1-4, 2017. Our first time there and will definitely go back again. The members were friendly and they were having their 4th of July gathering the Saturday we were there and invited us to join. The beach is right at the end of the dock so it is awesome for small kids.The marina is clean and has restrooms, showers and laundry. There is also a fuel dock and a pump out boat available.There is a nice clean grill area that is overhead protected. A short walk uptown will bring you to several restaurants. My favorite is Mark Anthony's for pizza. They have lots of other menu items as well including seafood but I discovered they have the best chicken salad I've ever had! Made in house and not loaded with mayo. It was yum. This is a protected place to stay if you are boating through the Cape Cod canal in your travels. We will definitely be back .

The location just off the Cape Cod canal is a perfect for trips to Provincetown, the Elizabethan Islands or the Vineyard. The area provides top self fishing. The harbor is very well protected. And there are numerous dock and dine options within a 15-20 minute boat ride. There are also launch services that will pick you up at the club and bring you to area restaurants.

Very nice place. Safe Harbor and heavy moorings. The only thing I would recommend is that they check the pennants on their moorings. Lines appeared old and frayed. We used a dock line for extra protection while the winds were up.

We had a great visit. Plenty of moorings. Well protected and 10 to 12 foot depths. Shep at the dock was very helpful and a big SHOUT OUT to Ryan who ran us back and forth from our boat to the dock as it was to o windy to drop our tender. Thanks Ryan!!
