Welcome Aboard!

The Northern Yacht Club is a two level multi functional building. It can be rented for functions of any kind. The ground level is where the dance floor, bar, gaming room, kitchen, and washrooms are located. This level is wheelchair accessible, and has an approximately capacity for 99 people.

The upper level is a great area for smaller parties such as birthdays, wedding showers, baby showers, or just a small gathering. This area has a washroom, and an approximately capacity for 50 people.
Recently the club added a big new lower and upper deck to its building. This is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the beautiful view of the North West Arm.
