Reviews for Dalhousie Yacht Club
Friendly Club, 2016-08-04
Captain: , Britt, Ontario (711)

Tied up in front of clubhouse with help from members. Four power outlets. Nice bar and restaurant.

Restaurant open to public on Fridays, 2013-06-12
Captain: , Avondale, PA (448)

We walked over from Port of Dalhousie Pier Marina to try to get something to eat and were told it's open to public on Fridays. Unfortunately, we were there on a Tuesday. Restaurant and bar looked very nice, however.

Friendly, good people., 2012-05-16
Captain: , Erie, Pa. (1896)

Stayed on wall right in front of clubhouse, no power. Firendly people and willing to help. Food was great and bar was very friendly.

Fuel dock is tricky, 2011-05-26
Captain: , Picton, ON (270)

The fuel dock here is a tricky one to get to, the current is moving out of the inlet and can grab your boat enough to make you spin away if your angle is off when coming in. The gas attendent did not want me to come in the way I had fenders on my stbd side and singlehanded so he made me switch them in the channel, the current was strong enough that i had to grab a fender then back to helm, correct course and then re attach fender to port. After 15 mins of this he then allowed me to fuel up. I can honestly say he could have helped by holding me off for a few mins to switch the fenders around and then pulled the boat to its proper place in at the fuel dock.
They had no coffee, nor showers in operation, and actually told me to dock at the municipal docks to get coffee from Tim hortons up the street. They would not let me slip in for a few hours to get a few things.

Friendly, but beware the wall!, 2011-02-02
Captain: , Toronto, ON (1749)

Friendly eough club, but the wall can be difficult or even dangerous when wind on the lake is out of the north and sets up agains the current coming out of the channel.
