Our beautiful location along the Kent Narrows is a wonderful place to dock your boat!
Transients are welcome to an overnight or weekend stay at our private club or you can join KIYC to enjoy our club year-round and get a full lease (April 1st thru March 31st.) at a very reasonable rate or discounted transient rates. KIYC is easy to get to by car and puts you close to so much by boat.
By boat, KIYC is just 11 miles from either Rock Hall to its north or Saint Michaels to its south. With Chester and Corsica rivers just to its north and Eastern Bay, Wye and Miles rivers to its south you can pick your game whether you want to fish, crab, sail, anchor out, visit historic towns, etc, etc. Knapps Narrows is just a short jump and Oxford just beyond that. Approximately 21 miles to Baltimore for City life with Aquarium, Museums, etc or to Annapolis with Naval Academy and all it has going on. Want to go further, you have the entire Chesapeake Bay at your call.
Afterward you can cruise back to KIYC to lay back and relax at an Eastern Shore pace while enjoying its serene setting and all the amenities. Close-by, visit the cross island trail, heritage center, environmental center and more. KIYC has very attractive slip rates (membership required) and when you want to visit other areas the list of reciprocal Yacht clubs is very impressive. Make KIYC your home port and truly enjoy all boating has to offer within easy reach.
And our POOL! Enjoy spectacular views of Prospect Bay while you are in our heated saltwater pool (open from April till September) order food from Chesapeake Chef Services full menu along with libations from our bar brought to you at the pool. Have fun at the TIKI Bar, sit on the patio or in the Lounge and enjoy a million-dollar view while making friends, eating great food, and partaking in beverages.
The people of the club are incredibly friendly, pool and pool side bar were very nice and clean. The marina itself was okay, It’s just off of big water and a little choppy, finger piers are a tad short. It’s across the harbor from all of the restaurants and although they are close the way the crow flies, it’s a very long walk. A club member let us borrow a car which was very nice.
The grounds of the yacht club are awesome, sitting on a peninsula with water views in every direction. We went to see the fireworks and it was a perfect location; a good live band, drinks at the tikibar and a cookout menu made for a fun experience. The transient dock is a bit tricky to get into and the tidal current rips past it on peak flow. I would suggest timing your arrival and departure based on the tides.
