Cruising In

Ahoy and thank you for your interest in cruising to Oakland Yacht Club - we have a wonderful guest dock available for cruisers! Kindly email our Port Captain, John Torola, portcaptain@oaklandyachtclub.com, or our Assistant Harbormaster, Dan Jones, (Ahm@oaklandyachtclub.com) if you’d like to reserve a cruise-in date.  You will need to complete the Guest Berthing form and provide copies of your boats insurance, registration/documentation and valid ID. 

Oakland Yacht Club is a member of the Pacific Inter Club Yacht Association (PICYA); we extend the courtesy of waiving the second night’s dock fee to our PICYA shipmates. If your yacht club or boating association has provided a burgee to OYC, we will display it in our bar area during your cruise-in.

OYC is a casual and friendly club, so relax and enjoy your time with us!

Office hours of Operation
Tuesday through Saturday: 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and we’re closed Mondays.

Galley and bar service
OYC serves Wednesday lunches and dinners during racing season; dinners on Friday & Saturday evenings, and Sunday breakfast. The bar service begins ahead of the meal services generally. Check with the calendar for specific bar service information.

Dock amenities

Pets are welcome on the docks and grounds but not in the club house. Pet owners are expected to have direct pet control and clean up after their animals.

Cruisers please display your club burgee on your boat and sign our guest log upstairs at the entrance to our dining room and bar.
