Membership Benefits

Established in 1896, Halifax River Yacht Club is a private club in downtown Daytona Beach whose members value tradition, camaraderie and lasting friendships, while providing outstanding nautical, social and dining activities in a welcoming environment.  We are proud to be the oldest yacht club on the eastern seacoast still on its original site.

HRYC is a member of the Florida Council of Yacht Clubs and the Yachting Clubs of America, allowing for reciprocal privileges at yacht clubs throughout Florida and across the country. We also have club privileges locally to Riviera Country Club and Spruce Creek Country club for golf, tennis and a different dining experience. CLICK HERE to see more detail on Reciprocity. 

In addition to formal and informal dining rooms, we have a Tiki bar which is a favorite spot for our members, especially during the summer months when they enjoy Friday night entertainment provided by local talents. Our Tiki area also has a pool, great for a quick dip or a long soak in the sun.  For those who like to keep moving, our pickleball courts are just the thing. 

Another Benefit of Membership Halifax River Yacht Club members come from many different backgrounds, each member bringing unique value to the club and to our community. These talents are put to good use through a variety of volunteering and leadership opportunities at the club. 

Leadership Opportunities  These opportunities include becoming a member of our Board of Directors and working towards becoming our Commodore, Vice Commodore, Rear Commodore, Fleet Captain, Treasurer or Secretary.

Commodears  For the ladies of the club, there is a wonderful organization called the Commodears.  The Commodears meet once a month to discuss the many enjoyable activities and fund raising events to support HRYC, with which they are involved.  CLICK HERE to see more.  There are many opportunities as a member of Commodears to share both your talents and creativity.

Clubs in the Club offer Pickleball, Bridge, Wine tasting and more.  CLICK HERE for all the details.

Committees In addition, there are a number of committees members can join, including Entertainment, Membership, Ambassadors, By Laws, House, Docks & Fixed Property, etc. Each committee has its own special goals and offers many opportunities for members to become involved and make life long pals while sharing their unique abilities.
