The RKYC Welcomes Visiting Yachts

The RKYC has been welcoming boaters from around the world for over 100 years and we are always pleased when yachts and their crews make a stop at our club/marina. You will find our members hospitable, helpful and willing to share their knowledge and love of the area.

Clearing In – Customs and Immigration

The RKYC is both a CANPASS and a designated telephone reporting site which means you can call 1 800 CANPASS when entering or returning to Canada and the Customs and Immigration Officers will meet you at the RKYC.  Give them a call upon arrival or as you are approaching Saint John and they will instruct you on what procedures they need you to follow.  The office is open from 8:00 AM until 12:00 midnight, seven days a week.  CANPASS holders may have other reporting options.   Visit for more information.

Club and Marina

Berth Rentals are $1.50 per foot per night (plus HST/sales tax) and include water and power on the docks. Berths are not always available so please call or email us in advance. Power is 115 v, 15 amp only. Moorings are available for $30 (plus HST/sales tax) per night. Washrooms and Shower Facilities are located in and outside (at the back of the building) of the Clubhouse.

The Club House Bar is usually open on Friday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings (and sometime other days and times) and the crew of visiting yachts  are encouraged to stop in for a drink.  On Thursday nights we also host a buffet in the club house and again, the crew of visiting yachts are welcome.  Please go to our events calendar for buffet menus and pricing. Reservations are required for the buffet so please email the office or use our Buffet Booking System to reserve.

Internet services are provided within the Clubhouse, Marina and to a lesser extent the visitor mooring area free of charge. Please contact the office for the password.
