About The Club

The Davis Island Yacht Club is a member-owned, private yacht club located at the southern end of Davis Islands in Tampa, Florida. The club's grounds create a natural harbor and breakwater for the docks and a mooring area marked on charts as a seaplane basin.


The club hosts a full schedule of sailing races, maintains an active cruising fleet, and has a robust youth sailing program, the Davis Island Youth Sailing Foundation. It maintains ongoing relationships with state and regional sailing organizations, is a founding member of the Florida Council of Yacht Clubs, and is a member of the Yachting Club of America. The Club provides limited support for members representing the club in regional, national, and international sailing races. Members participate heavily in local and regional events sponsored by other organizations. DIYC also has an active women's sailing group known as the Dinghy Dames.


The club's facilities include wet and dry slips for members' boats, a pavilion for small sailing craft such as prams, dinghies, and one-design boats, a clubhouse, and a swimming pool. The dining room and bar serve members, their guests, and participants in the numerous regattas and educational programs hosted by the Club. DIYC’s social functions connect festivities to sailing activities.


DIYC’s long-standing Thursday Night Races are open to anyone interested in sailing and provide a great opportunity for novices or newcomers to make themselves better known to the membership.

Visiting The Club

We at the Davis Island Yacht Club are excited to welcome you to our Club. If you are from an FCYC club, no letter of recommendation is needed. Just your membership card and a photo ID. Members of Clubs assocaiated with the Register of American Yacht Clubs will need to have a letter of introduction sent to office@diyc.org before arriving at DIYC. We are glad to extend our guest privileges to you, per our reciprocal agreement.


When you arrive, please make your way to the bar to check in. You'll need to show your Yacht Club Membership card (either digital or physical) along with a photo ID. If your membership card has your photo, no other ID will be necessary.


Seating at the bar or restaurant is on a first-come, first-served basis, and reservations are not required except on Friday nights and special occasion events. All purchases in the dining room, bar, or ships store must be paid in full with a credit card. We won't charge your Club's membership account. FCYC members have the option to charge back to their home club.


Please take note of our current Dining hours, which can be viewed here.


Please note that the DIYC (Davis Island Yacht Club) does not have a specific dress code, except for the rule that wet bathing suits are not allowed inside the clubhouse at any time. Additionally, shirts and shoes are required inside the clubhouse.


Pets are not allowed inside the clubhouse, porches, or the pool area unless they are a certified service animal. However, your furry friend is welcome in the Regatta Bar area, the Point, your boat, and slip areas. Just keep them on a leash, clean up after them, and don't let them climb on chairs or tables.


If you have any questions about our policies or Club rules, feel free to give us a call at the office.


If you're coming by boat, get approval from our Dockmaster before arriving at our Guest Docks. And if you're driving, keep in mind that we've got about 90 boats on trailers year-round, so parking can be a bit tricky. To make things easier, please park in the grassy area outside of the members-only parking spaces. And remember, all parking on the blacktop is reserved for members, except for handicapped spaces.


If you need to get in touch with Dock Master please send an email to dockmaster@diyc.org.
