Welcome to Maple Bay Yacht Club

Special arrangements are in-place for reciprocal moorage. Please read carefully:

Sorry, No U.S. Boats at this time

Our reciprocal dock will be open at 50% capacity for transient Canadian boaters ONLY.  Due to the pandemic, we are requesting you make a reservation on the day before arriving at MBYC, prior to 4:00 PM.  Reservations will be accepted by calling the dockmaster (250) 710-2350 or the Clubhouse (250) 746-4521.  Pre-payment by credit card only must be made at time of reservation. Maximum stay ONE NIGHT ONLY. Public washroom and showers will remain closed. Visiting boaters are welcome to enjoy the bar facility, which has opened in accordance with Provincial Guidelines and protocols pertaining to COVID 19 and physical distancing.

COVID - 19 :  The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) reminds all boaters that crossing the border for recreation or tourism is currently prohibited.  The Government of Canada has introduced border measures to limit the spread of Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Canada, including the restriction of all discretionary travel into Canada.   Boaters who enter Canada without reporting to the CBSA (including for the purpose of refuelling) may face severe penalties, including monetary penalties, seizure of their vessels and/or criminal charges. The CBSA and its law enforcement partners are actively monitoring Canadian waterways and will address any identified discretionary cross-border activities.

We are located in Maple Bay on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.
Maple Bay is just West of Saltspring Island, North of Sansum Narrows at 48°48.18’N/123°36.13’W
