Frequently Asked Questions

What’s a working club?

Smugglers Cove Boat Club (SCBC) is a “working” club, which means all members are required to put in mandatory work hours to help maintain the complex. The amount of work hours required is set each year by the executive, typically 20 per year.

Who are your members?

Our members represent a cross-section of both boating and Niagara. We’re Niagara’s farmers, doctors, teachers, laborers, small business owners, plumbers, accountants, lawyers, electricians, office workers, pastors, police officers, firemen and Niagara's families.

What are the Member Fees?

Club fees are very reasonable compared to many of the marinas and clubs around Lake Ontario. Click here to see the membership fee breakdown.

Are slips available?

We have a maximum membership of 85 and we are always accepting new applications.

Niagara's Hidden Treasure

Nestled along the western bank of the Niagara River is a unique boat club, just 2 NM upriver of beautiful and historic Niagara on the Lake. The Smuggler’s Cove Boat Club is an entirely floating club tucked in amongst the picturesque natural beauty of the Niagara Parkway, where it intersects with East-West Line, coming from Highway #55. The private gatehouse lies between the main clubhouse and the dock to shore where wildlife abounds.
