Membership is valuable to sailors of all levels of experience, and our programs are designed for both local and out of town sailors.

Sailing in 2 Southern California Locations
Whether you want to sail in San Diego out of Harbor Island Yacht Club or in Long Beach and Catalina Island out of Harborlight Yacht Club, as a member you may rent boats from either location.
Our Selection of Yachts
With over 50 of the most popular models available from Catalina, Hunter, Benetau, and Lagoon, our members never have trouble reserving the boats of their choice. From day-sailors all the way up to cruising catamarans, Harbor Yacht Clubs' selection of yachts will accomodate all types of sailors.
Affordable, Leisurely Sailing
When you take out any of our sailboats in San Diego or Long Beach, we never require you to clean, pump out, or re-fuel the boat upon returning. No additional cleaning or pump out fees are added onto your charter rate. Simply take your trash and belongings with you, and we take care of the rest! Our friendly and experienced staff ensures that your sailing experience with us is always the most relaxing and enjoyable one possible.
Find Sailing Partners
Our "Members Only" portion of our website allows you to specify your experience level, availability, and boat preference in order to connect you with other sailors that are looking for those criteria. You can search for sailing partners that have criteria you are looking for as well, so you can meet fellow members, gain experience on the water, and share sailing costs.
