Reciprocal Clubs

Guest Policies

Bay Harbor Yacht Club members have the opportunity to visit and experience the luxuries of other world-renowned clubs through our reciprocal club program.  Each club dictates the privileges, policies and availability for Bay Harbor Yacht Club members. In turn, BHYC maintains the same controls for members of these clubs who wish to visit the Yacht Club.  For details and reservation procedures, please contact guestservices@bayharboryc.com.
