Island Yacht Club is a safe and secure private island community dedicated to active, resort style living in a cottage setting. Go boating, relax poolside, play tennis on our clay courts or walk Muggs Island Nature Trail while the kids enjoy summer camp.
Nestled in Blockhouse Bay – arguably the most beautiful cove on the Toronto Islands. Island Yacht Club is ready to receive you. Board the private tender at Queens Quay for a short boat ride across Toronto’s harbour, feel the intensity of the city life melt away as you step onto Muggs Island.
The IYC tender departs from the south side of Queens Quay West, one block east of Bathurst Street, opposite Dan Leckie Way. The dock is located at the end of the inlet, between the grain elevators and Marina Quay West. You will see the Island Yacht Club shelter west of the Toronto Music Garden.
Island Yacht Club offers both boating and social memberships. Whether you’re an experienced boat owner or looking for a Cottage-in-the-City lifestyle, there’s a membership for you. Boating members enjoy a full range of marine services, including storage, repairs, hauling and launching – handled by our professional staff.
In addition to being an inspiring place where people come together, the east side of Muggs Island is a bird sanctuary that attracts a diverse clientele of its own. Amateur ornithologists should come prepared with binoculars to catch a close-up of the beautiful birds that perch on the treetops.
