Davis Island Yacht Club


The Davis Island Yacht Club is a private, member-owned yacht club situated at the south end of Davis Islands in Tampa, Florida. The club sponsors a heavy schedule of sailing races, an active cruising fleet and a strong youth sailing organization.

"The principal purpose of the Club shall be to promote sailing in all its forms, to form a social nucleus with activities for people primarily interested in sailing, to develop and maintain active relationships with other sailing organizations, to promote racing and cruising for pure enjoyment, to promote safety on the water-ways, and to foster a spirit of good fellowship and helpfulness."

We have resumed serving food inside the club house FOR MEMBERS ONLY. Dining on the porch will remain an option, including for reciprocal Clubs. Inside dining will be for a maximum of 50% of capacity, approximately 60 people. Friday evening dining (inside and outside) will require a reservation.
