CRUISING

Benefits of Cruising at OYS

Reciprocals

Reciprocal visitors are welcome at OYS provided their clubs are open for reciprocity.  Slips at OYS are assigned on a first-come first-served basis for two nights free of charge, and up to three additional nights at $40 per night (excluding pre-arranged club cruises). Please make sure to present your membership card as you arrive at OYS.

Docking & registration

New online docking and registration request forms are now digital to reduce contact during these unprecedented times. All docking requests must be submitted by 12 noon the day prior to arrival and your will be contacted by the OYS harbourmaster if your request was successful. At this time, docking requests are not accepted by phone.
We are not accepting visitors departing from the United States. In addition, visitors must follow all rules that are in place to comply with the current legislation and public health guidelines.
