The Antigonish Boat Club is located on Antigonish Harbour -- just a few minutes from Town. The waters are warm, sheltered and set in a landscape of incredible natural beauty. While shallow in areas, the harbour is perfect for small craft sailing, canoeing, kayaking and paddle-boarding. For larger boats, it lends access to the beautiful St. George’s Bay and its ring of coastal communities.

Club Services

New Launch Ramp

Our ramp facilitates members launching their smaller sailboats and power boats, canoes or kayaks. Going forward, concrete pads will be poured to ensure longevity.


The Club has a sheltered mooring field with several vacancies. Vacant moorings may be used by Members with Club permission. Please be advised that the Club cannot guarantee mooring conditions and is not responsible for damage resulting from their use.

The Clubhouse

Our clubhouse provides basic shelter for club events. Improvements will be possible as participation grows.


The club is a growing community of enthusiasts of all ages, backgrounds and interests. New members are always welcome: please fill the membership form.

To encourage participation, membership fees have been set at a very reasonable $75 per year for individuals or families.
