Organized Cruising

2 Apr 2021

We enjoy visiting other clubs, often with groups of multiple members; and we are open to hosting other club groups as well.  Please contact our Fleet Captain.

Reciprocal cruises are popular with our members. Reciprocal cruises involve an organized exchange whereby some members from Club “A” for instance visit our club at the same time some of our members visit their club. It is a great way to experience other clubs while having the comfort in knowing that there will be dock space for you.

In 2021, some of our members are planning a voyage to the Thousand Islands (COVID permitting).

About Smugglers Cove Boat Club

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 (SCBC) is a unique 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. Once through the gatehouse, which houses men’s and women’s heads and private shower, bulletin board of upcoming activities and items of interest, as well as a workshop and commercial ice machine, the dock leads to a communal clubhouse that is the mainstay hub of many of the social events that our members enjoy. The clubhouse and accompanying deck has full kitchen facilities and multiple propane BBQ’s and a ton of both indoor and outdoor seating where many friendships have been made. We are excited that we will be building a brand new new clubhouse in the fall of 2021! The rest of the complex is made up of walkways and 56 finger docks as well as 18 mooring balls.


We are a welcoming, family oriented club that caters to both sail and power boats. We feel strongly that boating is a wonderful lifestyle that includes water, air and friendships. Because SCBC is a working club we are able to enjoy boating for a fraction of the cost of other clubs, and we get to know and interact with fellow members in a way that deepens our relationships while working toward the common goal of having a well run club. Members are required to put in work hours, working together for the launch of the club in the spring and it’s removal in the fall, as well as other work parties and social events during the year.
