Reviews for Chesapeake Yacht Club
Great Private Marina, 2017-06-06
Captain: , Boca Raton, FL (1347)

We stayed their for about a week in May as we had to drive back to Jacksonville, FL. We were there with the help of a slip holder. As stated by previous folks, this marina is great. The people are friendly and helpful. Uber in and out was perfect. Thanks to our friends for inviting us to stay there.

Welcoming, well maintained and great people, 2017-05-01
Captain: , Annapolis, Md (130)

We just moved our sailboat here from Annapolis. The facilities are impeccable, the amenities are fantastic and the food/diining is super. Our slip is well maintained, easy in and out and generously sized. The manager, Cordell is very attentive and knowledgeable and Sharon is great to work with in the office. Views are spectacular and the marina is quiet at night. We are really happy to be here.

Beautiful facilities, 2014-07-09
Captain: , Shady Side, MD (10)

Clean, well maintained grounds, docks, heads, showers, and club house. Manager lives next door and is avalable almost 24/7. Convenient to Annapolis, Baltimore, St. Michales, etc Great restaurant on weekends

A hidden gem just off the Chesapeake Bay on the West River, 2014-06-23
Captain: , New Bern, NC (40)

Visiting this gem of a friendly facility on the West River about 10 miles south of Annapolis is a treat. The clubhouse is attractive with an exceptional restaurant, a handsome bar, and clean shower/bathrooms, and there's a delightful outside bar next to the pool. The grounds are spaciious and lovely. A real "find" off the Bay!

Great Facility, 2014-06-10
Captain: , Annapolis (95)

Twenty plus years of "Marina cruising" and this is the best facility we have been to. If the Chef's cooking doesn't impress you, Cordell and his staff will. Friendly people, great facility and a great location. What more is there?

Absolute best facility on the Chesapeake, 2014-03-19
Captain: , Chesapeake Harbour Marina (10)

I've been a member here for about 8 years. The middle bay location opens up all Chesapeake Bay cruising areas, particularly from Baltimore to Solomons. The grounds are beautiful, the sunsets are spectacular, the staff is truly professional, and the food at the restaurant is delicious. They plan club cruises and throw a few parties during the summer around which I plan the rest of the year. I love CYC!

Wonderful place to visit or join!, 2013-06-08
Captain: , deale md (181)

Best managed and maintained facility on the Bay.

Nice docks, not sure where the comment about no pilings come from? All slips are fixed docks with pilings.

Nice pool, great bar, and fantastic pool.

Cordell the manager is a true pro.

BCYC Club Event May 2012, 2013-05-24
Captain: , Annapolis Md (280)

A group of 20 boats both sail and power visited CYC on The Memorial Day weekend. The docks are a little tricky to approach and there are no pilings to tie up to. Rather there are metal rings attached to the dock. Help from the club dock hands is recommended!
The grounds and clubhouse are very nice. Heads and showers clean and well kept.
The staff of the club put on two dinners for 40+ boaters with surprising ease. The food was better than most and the wine prices very fair.
All in all this is a lovely place ot visit if you a member of a reciprocating yacht club. Suggest that you call ahead to make a reservation.

Friendly and welcoming Club, 2012-07-21
Captain: , Sue Island, Maryland (131)

We visit each summer and are always pleased.
Great pool and clean bath houses.
The Chef is one of the best on the Bay with fresh seasonal entres.
Cordell and Sharon are true professionals.

Even better than the first visit, 2012-07-07
Captain: , Wilmington DE (792)

We are here for several days during the hot spell. Cordel the club manager offered a free sangria tasting one evening. This is a very friendly and well run club. We blew a breaker on the dock the first night and Cordel came out after dinner to replace it. Super service and reasonable prices. Good views and breezes even in the heat.

Great Place to Spend a Weekend, 2012-06-12
Captain: , Annapolis (1465)

What a wonderful Yacht Club! Cordell and Sharon are seem to work 26 hours a day to keeps both members and guests feel welcome.

Great food in the dining room and a cozy bar adds to the ambiance.

Call on Ch 78

Cheasapeake Yacht Club, 2011-09-24
Captain: , west river (13)

Best kept secret on the Bay. Great location to cruise from. Easy to get to by car from VA and MD. It is owned and operated by its members. Stop by and check it out, you won't want to leave.

Best Yacht Club on the Bay (and one of the oldest - great traditions), 2010-06-15
Captain: , Shady Side, MD (46)

CYC, as it is known by its members, is the best yacht club on the Bay. It is extremely family friendly, member-owned club, featuring a full dining room, bar, aft-deck w/ bar, swimming pool, canopied picnic tables, 4 docks with dock pads for parties, ample parking, lush grounds with grass, trees, and shade, and a spectacular west faciing view across the South River. From here you are central to the best part of the Bay. Easy cruising to Baltimore, Farleigh Creek, St. Michaels, Annapolis, Kent Island, Cambridge, and all the rivers and creeks that abound in this part of the Bay.

Best kept secret on the bay, 2008-09-15
Captain: , baltimore, md (106)

Unlike many YC that are nothing more than a social club, CYC members must have a boat. This allows for common interests in boating and is reflected by themany boating outings held throughout the year.

Tranists are welcome and the club has a first class dining room and pool.
