Boat Club FAQs

What is a Boat Club and how does it work?
Whether you’re interested in cruising or fishing or both, this boat club’s for you.

The Boat Club Concept Explained.

The boat club concept is simple and also brilliant. Why own a boat? South Florida’s recent hurricanes gave boat owners even more reasons to sell their motorboats and join Gulfstream Boat Club. No more worries about docking your boat in a storm, expensive repairs, or unused dock rentals. GBC takes care of everything. You just book the boat of your choice and enjoy!

If you are interested in becoming a member of a South Florida boat club, look no further. Based in Delray Beach, Gulfstream Boat Club has the fastest-growing fleet of cruising and fishing boats in the Palm Beach County area and beyond. Our boat family prides itself on excellent service and safety. Whether you are planning a sunset cruise, ocean fishing, or a family waterskiing trip on the Intracoastal, GBC makes it simple and easy.

Any questions about the club, besides “Where do I sign”?

Where are you located?

Gulfstream Boat Club’s main location is on the Intracoastal at Marina Delray in Delray Beach. We also feature two other locations in Boynton Beach: near the popular Two Georges Restaurant, and at Palm Beach Yacht Club. These locations make it easy for our members to travel by boat south to Boca Raton, or as far north as Jupiter, depending on their plans.

What kind of boats do you have?

Our boat club has more than 20 premier cruising and fishing boats, and we’re always adding to the fleet. We have center console, dual console, and deck boats available in several sizes, from such manufacturers as SouthWind, Intrepid, Key West, and Contender. Our boats feature high-power engines, ample shade, stereos, and comfortable seating. For specific information on our fleet, click here.

What services does Gulfstream Boat Club offer?

We are South Florida’s most respected boat club. We have several licensed captains for charters; dream up an excursion and we can make it happen! Some of our most popular services are sunset cruises, fishing charters (fully rigged with gear), wakeboarding and waterskiing lessons, and providing bait and ice and/or catered meals.

Are the boats safe?

Safety is our first priority at Gulfstream Boat Club. Each new member receives a lesson in boat operation and safety. We maintain our boats and equipment to the highest standard. Boating Life jackets are on board in a variety of sizes. Maps and charts are also provided.

What sort of club memberships do you offer?

Gulfstream Boat Club offers a variety of flexible memberships to suit your needs. Purchase an hourly membership in increments of 20, 35, or 50 hours. Annual memberships offer the best value; and we have a six-month membership as well. Every membership includes access to fishing gear, wakeboards, waterskis, and snorkel gear, as well as other perks.

A Boat Experience for Everyone at Gulfstream Boat Club

Welcome to South Florida, home to some of the country’s best cruising waters, fishing spots, waterfront restaurants, and sunsets.

Whether you have in mind a morning fishing excursion, a family waterski adventure, or cocktails after dark, GBC can design the perfect outing for you.

Here are some of our most popular excursions:

Boating charters from the Florida Coast at Gulfstream Boat Club
Our captains can take you deep sea fishing off the Florida coast.
  • Deep Sea Fishing

Let one of our licensed captains take you on a morning or afternoon adventure out of the Boynton Beach Inlet for some deep sea fishing. Your captain will have the boat rigged (fishing poles and bait included) and ready to go for an exciting trip out to sea—or the Intracoastal Waterway, if you prefer not to go offshore. Your captain has been fishing these waters for year’s, and will tailor the trip to your preferences.

Like big game fishing?

Delicious wahoo for sushi or even mahi mahi (dolphin) fishing is popular.

Would you like a new mount for your family room wall? We’ve got jumping sailfish out here, too! Our younger boaters love to bottom-fish for yummy snapper or grouper.

Your captain will filet your catch for you right at the dock—most of our local restaurants will cook it up for you!

We’ll provide ice and bottled waters, and there is a small cabin with a bathroom and plenty of shade, so it’s fun for the whole family. You’ll meet your GBC captain at waterside dining spot Two Georges Restaurant and Marina, so guests often enjoy a meal before or after their excursion.

  • Sightsee and Snorkel

Cruise north on the Intracoastal Waterway towards historical Palm Beach and popular boating spot Peanut Island. During your cruise, your captain will point out some of the country’s most beautiful mansions—see if you can recognize which celebrity lives there!

If conditions permit, your captain will then head out of the Palm Beach Inlet to snorkel in front of the Breakers Hotel, where you can easily enjoy the bright corals and friendly tropical fish.

If the seas are too rough, the captain will take you to snorkel at Peanut Island, where the waters are as blue as that of the Bahamian Islands.

Pack a lunch or ask about our catered lunch to enjoy a great picnic on the boat! No need to worry about the snorkel equipment— we’ll provide the gear, as well as ice and bottled water.

The Old Key Lime House is just one stop available on a GBC bar-hop.

  • Leisure Cruise and Waterfront Lunch

Heading south on the Intracoastal Waterway is a perfect outing for those who like to keep things at a slower pace.

Sit back and relax with a cocktail in hand and enjoy the views.

You may even spot a few of our Florida Natives—birds, manatees, and other wildlife—along the way! We’ll stop for lunch so you can enjoy a wonderful meal at one of GBC’s favorite waterfront restaurants. Our captain will make sure you get the best view in the house.

There's nothing like being on a GBC boat at sunset.

  • Sunset Cocktail and Bar Hopping

The ONLY way to see a sunset in South Florida is by boat! Join us for an evening cocktail cruise along the Intracoastal Waterway. Watch the skies change colors for one of the most beautiful sunsets you’ll ever witness.

The nightlife along the waterway is pretty lively, so once the sun has set, ask your captain to dock at one of our favorite local spots for a Margarita or Miami Vice, and even enjoy some live music.

The locals are friendly and your drinks will always be full, so you are guaranteed to enjoy yourselves to the fullest on this excursion! Guests can either BYOB, or GBC can supply beverages and catering on request.

GBC offers the newest and best fleet of boats in South Florida, and our licensed captains are experts on the water. Call GBC at 561.865.7797 to create a memorable outing of any length and size, and for any occasion.
