Antigonish Boat Club

A Volunteer Led, Membership Supported, Community Boat Club

Oct 5 2022
Access to the club following Fiona has been restored.

We are greatful to all who helped securing boats and equipment prior to the storm and to those who helped to clear downed trees from the road, and particularly to Ernie Porter for sharing his time and equipment to do much of the heavy lifting.

Mobile Sailing School

Each year (pandemic aside) the Boat Club hosts Sailing lessons for youths provided by Mobile Sailing School instructors. We are very pleased to report that lessons for the 2022 season were a grand success! For details, please see our Sailing page

Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP)

For several years the Club has hosted SUP lessons. We are currently investigating opportunities for the 2022 season and we will announce details as they come available.

Canoe and Kayak

Thanks to the acquisition of kayaking equipment, the club is pleased to be offering Kayak lessons and outings during summer 2022. For details, please see our Paddling page


New(er) Docks

Thanks to a Provincial grant the Club upgraded docks during the 2020 season. A third section has been added and floats were replaced with more stable, more durable, and environmentally friendly floats. A kayak launch platform was added this season and the docks were re-stained

Boat Ramp

Under Construction - literally! But it works pretty well with just gravel so far. Heavy boats aren't recommended at this point.

Small Craft Storage Building

With financial assistance from the NS Dental Association Community Grant, we will soon start construction of a ramp-side storage building for member's canoes, kayaks and stand-up paddle boards.
