LOCATED ON BEAUTIFUL NORTH PADRE ISLAND at the Intersection of Finger Canals, the Clubhouse features million dollar views

Club Members enjoying the Award Winning “Soup Night”


We invite you to come aboard!

In August 1996, the doors to the two-story building at the west end of Whitecap were opened to all the dedicated and hard-working members of the Padre Island Yacht club. It was ten years in coming. When the first enthusiastic yachtsmen met in 1986 at Anchor Resort, the goal was to share their common interest in sailing, boating, racing, and to form new friendships in the process. That happened-and more!

As the membership grew, they needed a place large enough to hold their increasing numbers. Minds went to work, money was saved, negotiations were finalized, and through the combined efforts of an accomplished construction crew and the capable and willing hands of volunteer members, the  clubhouse with a view  was built–and the rest is history.

Every Friday night we meet to socialize and watch the sunset–an evening for camaraderie and an opportunity for relaxing after a long week. It’s a well-attended event, and even larger numbers bring their appetites to the monthly appetizer and dinner party nights. These events are hosted and prepared by various and talented member-chefs. Home cooking at it best!

Also once a month, it’s party time! Whether a Valentine’s Day celebration, a summer family picnic, a progressive dinner party by land and sea, or a Fish Fry, Luau, BBQ, or Steak Night–one thing for certain–it’ll be fun!

Monthly cruises dot the calendar. The cruisers may drop anchor in a protected cove with a beach suitable for swimming, or tie-up in a marina and enjoy cocktails and appetizers dockside before dinner. Many of the cruises are accessible by land for those who prefer to drive to the point of rendezvous.

Come be part of our family.
Come watch the sunsets.
Come join the fun.
