Our Vision

The Deas Island Yacht Club was founded in 2005 with a vision to promote boating safety as well as to provide recreational boating opportunities to its members.

Our club is located in Delta BC at the RiverHouse Marina and has approximately 100 members. Although we are located in Delta, we have many members with vessels moored at various locations throughout the lower mainland and Gulf Islands.


The Deas Island Yacht Club is always welcoming new members!

Fostering a sense of community linking the RiverHouse Pub and Restaurant, the RiverHouse Condominiums/Townhouses and the RiverHouse Marina for the benefit of all.

Providing opportunities to its members including :

- Promoting all recreational aspects of boating
