Our Membership

The purpose of the Gulf Harbour Yacht Club is two-fold: one, to promote the enjoyment, knowledge, and safety of boating through organized cruises and social functions; and two, to help members develop new and lasting friendships among people with common interests.

The Club has a general membership dinner meeting, usually held on the first Tuesday of each month, for socializing. At Boaters’ Night, usually held the first Thursday of each month, news, upcoming cruises, and topics of interest are presented to the membership.

“Regular Membership” in yacht club is open to anyone who owns or has a financial interest in a boat registered in Lee, Charlotte, or Collier Counties and owns property in the Gulf Harbour Community. “Property” in the Gulf Harbour Community is defined as a home or boat slip. Canoes, kayaks, jet skis, dinghies, jon boats, workboats, and commercial boats do not qualify a boat owner for membership. The Yacht Club Board reserves the right to review any boat that falls into these categories or is questionable as to whether it qualifies.

Members are encouraged to attend all membership dinner meetings, Boaters’ Night, club social events, and participate in planned cruises.

Those interested in joining may do so by completing a Membership Application Form and paying the membership dues. These forms are available here or at the Gulf Harbour Marina and may be left in the GHYC Mailbox adjacent to the Marina office, or mailed to Gulf Harbour Yacht Club, c/o Membership Chair, 14490 Vista River Drive, Fort Myers, FL 33908.
