Reviews for Prince Edward Yacht Club
Best place I have ever tied up., 2015-12-15
Captain: , Toronto (482)

We stayed here on our second trip to Picton, what a contrast to Tip of the Bay! We used the reciprical priviledges which are backwards in the fact that you pay the first night, but who cares, there is no reason to stay here just one night.

Docking was a little tight for my 35 ft full keel sailboat but we managed just fine because there is absolutely no wind or current in this very well protected harbour.

The staff were amazing and the members were like no other yacht club members I have ever met, beyond freindly, they treat you like an honoured guest. Drives into town, buying you beers in the pub, swapping yachting gear. Just awesome!

On our second day in town we had lunch at Lake on the Mountain at a restaurant on a high bluff over looking the reach and Glenorra. What a view and what a meal!

Prince Edward Yacht Club should not be seen as a stop over point- it should be the final destination of your cruise.

Friendly club and charming town, 2015-08-20
Captain: , Kingston (30)

We showed up and got the last slip. They treat you like royalty and love to talk. OK the showers aren't great, but the water is hot and it sure beats the one in the boat! This is a small town club with lots of character. The shopping is great in town, which is about a 10 minute walk and County Cafe serves great food. The only thing we noticed was that it is so well protected there isn't much breeze at all on hot nights!

Fantastic stop, 2015-07-24
Captain: , Chattanooga, TN (370)

We stayed there for two nights on June 21 and 22 2015 and were treated royally. Even though our boat was actually too big for their marina, they made a special place for us and made us feel like long-time members of their club. And with the special discount for being a yacht club member, it was the cheapest stay we have had in Canada so far.

World-class incompetence, 2015-07-24
Captain: , Portland, Oregon (496)

Don%u2019t go near this place! We and a buddy boat pulled in and requested a mooring ball for the night. We were told to tie up to those with orange floats. My buddy picked up the float and line and found that there was no line connected to it for mooring the boat. We hooked up to another ball with an orange float and were then told that we couldn%u2019t use that one as it was a private one. With great difficulty and the help of one of the yacht club patrons in a small boat we got our buddy connected to a ball without a loop on it by using their line through the %u201Ceye%u201D on the ball only to be told they couldn%u2019t moor that way. We finally just gave up and headed back to a wide spot in the bay to anchor and got a radio call that they could find a ball for us. After that experience we told them we weren%u2019t interested in staying there any longer. Find another marina to go to and save yourself a lot of grief.

Not sure why the higher reivews, 2015-07-15
Captain: , Essex, CT (1675)

This is a tough place to dock if you're over 30 feet. And the bathrooms and showers are a bit sketchy. The showers are basically walled in outside showers. It's a bit like taking a shower in a parking lot. The town was charming and the location was nice -- but I'm afriad the Club needs a bit of TLC.

Great stop over, 2014-07-07
Captain: , Olcott, NY (2536)

PEYC is a great little club.
friendly folks and an interesting Loyalist town.
Really enjoyed the awesome bookstore downtown and the "Portabello" restaurant, who made room for two hungry sailors when they had no reservations. (would advise reservations in the future)
Our only complaint, and it is not of the club, but the HIGH cost ($20.00cdn) for a pumpout at the minicipal dock. What are they thinking?
No wonder you hear of boaters who openly admit to pumping it over the side!!

Wonderful Club in a beautiful town, 2012-08-11
Captain: , Highland Yacht Club (30)

I stopped in at Prince Edward Yacht Club on a solo transit to Toronto. I had only planned one night, but the place was so nice, I stayed 2. It only took a tiny bit of foul weather to convince me that staying put would be a good idea.

Nice clubhouse and showers, etc, good docks, but the Electrical distribution needs improvement. 15A outlets are available only at the head end of the visitors dock. Requires a LONG extension cord. Another reviewer suggested upgrades were on their way.

Great little yacht club in a picturesque town, 2012-08-01
Captain: , Cape Coral, FL (1476)

We used reciprical yacht club privileges to stay one night on one of the mooring balls ($20/night; they didn't have space for our 34 foot catamaran on the docks). Had fun chatting with club members when we dinghied ashore to check in. Walked into town for some dinner and to pick up a few items at the grocery store (Sobey's on Main Street).

OUTSTANDING place to lay up for a couple of days., 2012-07-07
Captain: , Pultneyville, NY (285)

These folks are GREAT. VERY friendly group of people.

Bev is the Bar Manager and she's super. She'll talk you in on the VHF as well.

Sandy is one of the trainers for the childrens sailing program and went aloft for us. What a guy.

The little town is super and you'll want to stop by Coaches for dinner or lunch.

New docks, soon to get new electrical set-up, 2012-06-29
Captain: , Bainbridge Island, WA (343)

At present, electricity is limited on the docks, requiring *very* long cords for either 110 or shore power, but I was told that the system is being re-done next week.

This is a lovely, very friendly club, in a beautiful historic town. The marina is at the bottom of a hill, but once you get to the top, things are pretty flat. One of the club members took my bike up to the top in his truck, and I was good to go from there. There's extensive shopping, should you need most anything, and interesting little craft stores. There's a great farm stand next to the LCBO--what's the point of coming to the Garden County & not getting good fruits & veggies?

Very Cool Spot, 2011-11-20
Captain: , Wilson, New York (84)

I agree with the other "rater". A very neat spot. Friendly people for sure. The best thing about it, for me, was the cool and quaint little town. I had a very nice meal in a really cool pub. I will return someday for sure.

PEYC, 2007-08-16
Captain: , Point Breeze, NY, USA (919)

VERY friendly club. Docks in excellent condition and stable.
If you have to get stuck in the Bay of Quinte, THIS IS THE PLACE to do it.
