Member Benefits


A warm welcome and our utmost appreciation for your interest. Thunderbird Yacht Club’s roots date back to 1950’s when several Thunderbird Marina boaters began cruising together and started to refer to themselves as members of the “Thunderbird Yacht Club”. Fast-forward 70 years, TBYC has evolved into a vibrant yacht club, with our large Ekins Point, Gambier Island facility, and the Club’s four outstanding outstations, all conveniently located within a day’s sail of Greater Vancouver.

When you join Thunderbird Yacht Club, you and your family will enjoy a unique and special boating experience.  Benefits of membership include;

  • Extensive, private outstation at Ekins Point, Gambier Island

  • Exclusive use of outstation slips at Snug Cove (Bowen Island), Gibsons Marina (Sunshine Coast), Silva Bay (Gabriola Island) and Pender Harbour (Sunshine Coast)

  • Marina moorage credits at several Gulf Island marinas

  • Organized member events such as Spring Cruise/Sail Past and Commodore’s Fall Cruise and bi-annual work parties

  • A diverse range of people from all walks of life

  • Exceptional boating experiences for all ages.
