Reviews for Kent Island Yacht Club
Nice location for a weekend at the Narrows, 2016-08-26
Captain: , Middle River (50)

If you are a member of a yacht club (they reciprocate) this is well worth a stay. The location is great, the facilitlities and food are good and the drink prices are a plus. All the Narrows has to offer is nearby. The transient dockage cost can't be beat on value. However docking can be a little tricky with the current always a factor. If you can time it look to arrive/leave around slack tide and avoid max current unless you are on the outside of the transient pier. The Yacht club members and staff are friendly and welcoming to visitors.

I called about 2 weeks prior for a reservation. A young person answered the call. He took my name and phone number, but didn't ask basic but important questions (such as boat length or power requirements). However, he said that the dockmaster would call me back to confirm. 10 days later - no call back. The day before i called again and left a VM - no call back. The morning of the reserved night i called and spoke with the bar manager. Again he promised a call back. No one ever called me back.
I understand that there has been a lot of turnover at KIYC. That may be the reason for not communicating, but its no excuse.



A must visit, 2015-12-16
Captain: , Kent Island, MD (30)

We stayed over the 4th of July. Lots of action, members are extremely friendly recipricate with all other yacht clubs, great deal, pool, tiki bar, restaurant, showers and laundry available. Member even took us to local restaurant and picked us up. Only negative is current in channel and can get rough with boats waking us at times.
