The Yacht Club is one of the original landmarks of Cape Coral, and located on the Caloosahatchee River in a picturesque landscaped setting. As part of the Cape Coral Parks and Recreation Department, it brings a sense of community by providing a wide range of recreational programs and activities for all ages and skill levels throughout the year. The Yacht Club Community Park offers top-notch facilities and amenities, including a fishing pier, public beach and community pool. Amenities feature a marina, boat launch, barbecue grills, picnic shelters, outdoor racquetball courts, a playground, lighted tennis courts and Pro Shop, a Senior Center, and The Boathouse Tiki Bar & Grill Restaurant. The Yacht Club is open every day.
Boating in Cape Coral is a pleasurable pastime, with the beauty of the Gulf of Mexico all around you. From Cape Coral, it’s only a few miles to boat to Sanibel Island, Fort Myers Beach and Captiva. The Cape Coral Yacht Club, opened in 1958, has 89 boat slips and a fuel dock. The Boathouse is a place for rentals for stand up paddleboards, and where you can book a fishing excursion. A popular rental spot at The Yacht Club is a ballroom for private parties, social gatherings, weddings, and meetings. The Beach pavilion is often used for barbecues, picnics, and birthday parties. Special events and activities are held throughout the year, including “Sunset Celebration” on the pier, a favorite event on the first Wednesday of every month, featuring dozens of local arts and crafts vendors throughout the park, live music and of course, sunsets over the Gulf waters. The Senior Center hosts senior citizens daily for activities like dinner dances, exercise and computer classes, and day trips. The Yacht Club is an important fixture in the community for younger people and kids, too, with programs throughout the year, like summer camps, marine biology classes, dinner dances, football and baseball trips, saltwater fishing classes and a charming Daddy-Daughter Dance held every January.
The Boathouse Tiki Bar & Grill Restaurant at the Yacht Club is open daily, and serves seafood and cocktails on the water. It’s the best waterfront dining around. Residents and visitors leisurely dine on delicious seafood and sip tropical drinks with the Gulf of Mexico’s sparkling waters at your toes. For those boating, you can dock at one of The Boathouse’s slips. For fishermen, bring in your catch to The Boathouse for Hook and Cook. Chefs will cook your freshly caught fish for you that you catch on Cape Coral Beach next to the restaurant.
