If you are looking for a marina or yacht club near Annapolis, Washington, D.C., or Baltimore, CYC is ideally situated. Located at the confluence of the West River and South Creek in Shady Side, Md., CYC is approximately 30 minutes from the Washington Beltway and historic Annapolis. By boat, we’re just nine nautical miles from Annapolis, 15 NM from Kent Narrows, and 15 NM from Tilghman Island. Our location attracts members from across the extended Washington-Annapolis-Baltimore metro areas and beyond.
The grounds are gated, secure and professionally maintained. There are several nearby shops to keep your pantry and bar well stocked and marine experts to work on your engine, sails, and more.
We chose CYC after visiting every marina and resort from Edgewood down to Herrington South - and it was an easy choice. We highly recommend the entire Chesapeake Yacht Club experience in comparison to a marina. The food is great, the service is fantastic, and the social activities are fun. Everyone here is very nice - the club has a culture of genuine hospitality, helpfulness, and kindness. As slipholders, we are also part owners, so we have a say in the direction of the club - more so than customers at a marina. We find it especially pleasant to be able to spend our weekends at the club and on our boat without the noise of nearby nightlife. We highly recommend dropping by and seeing the facility to anyone thinking of boating in this vicinity.
I found found the food to be average, not great. The docks are in desperate need of replacement and the water depth is minimal at best throughout the marina. Wakes from passing boats made it down right dangerous on the southern side of the marina. The grounds and facilities are nice.
Amazing location off the central Bay. Convenient to entire middle Bay. This is a great location that has achieved an amazing blend of friendly people, outstanding food and a clean facility. Sit by the pool bar and enjoy a nice breeze while you see a showstopper of a sunset.
CYC is one of the best kept secrets on the Bay. Perfect location for heading north, south, or east on the Bay. There are so many great boating destinations close by. And if you don't feel like taking the boat out, the facility has all the amenities you need, pool, restaurant, Tiki Bar, Kids Room with games, and beautiful grounds. You will also find great people at CYC. We've been members of CYC for 16 years and can't imagine being anywhere else. Please come check out CYC for a weekend, you won't want to leave.
Whether you're here for a night or the weekend. Be prepared to have fun and relax. We've been members for 8yrs. Our kids have grown up here. We've made so many amazing friends. Fun for everyone. Great staff. Warm and inviting pool. Awesome food in the restaurant or out at the No Wake Zone Tiki bar. Kids have their own Juior fleet room not to mention the many kayaks to use. Even the dogs are invited. Love that we're a gated/secure yacht club. Come check us out you won't be disappointed. Even the sunset is spectacular here!
My husband and I have been boating since 1989. We started out at Mears marina in Annapolis. We are a 2 hr. drive and we have been coming every weekend (when in season) ever since. We found that after awhile Annapolis became boring. Arriving Friday, having to find a restaurant to eat (2 kids) every weekend became expensive and there wasn't anyplace to hang out other than the boat. They had tennis courts and a pool which was small a shared by the tennis/swim club and therefore croweded. They had a small club house that only the officers had keys to. Eventually a friend told us about CYC and we went down to visit. What a difference: Easy access to the Bay, St. Mike's, Annapolis and Solomens island A very nice restaurant A BAR for after the kids went to bed or they hung out in the kids room A nice private swimming pool with lovely view A "pad" with picnic tables, GAS grills, umbrellas so you could grill out comfortably at each dock. A outdoor wood fireplace with rocking chairs for cooler nites, and most of all FRIENDLY People. Guess what we were there to start our summer boating that April and that has been 17 years ago. Come visit, and look for Victorious on the end of Middle Dock
I've been a member for five years. This club is the finest facility on the bay. The food at the restaurant is delicious, the service is first class, and the location is perfect for cruising to just about the entire bay. Whether you participate in the social events or are looking for a quiet place to get away, you'll find it here. Highly recommended.
