Located on Bird Key on the edge of beautiful Sarasota Bay, our yacht club is just a bridge away from downtown and another short bridge to St. Armand’s Circle. The Bird Key entrance is located at the intersection of Bird Key Drive and John Ringling Boulevard, marked by a stoplight at the foot of the Ringling Bridge. Continue south, cross a small canal bridge and you will see Bird Key Yacht Club on your left. Turn left onto East Royal Flamingo Drive and left again into the Club entrance.
At the flashing red #10 just south of the Ringling Bridge, take a heading of 250° magnetic. Approaching the shore of Bird Key near the bridge, you will see a marking indicating the channel into the club. Follow the green markers on your port side and the seawall on your starboard. This no-wake channel will take you directly to the Club. The depth of water in our channel is 12 feet and the basin is 8 feet. Make radio contact when entering the channel on 16, and you will be asked to switch to channel 68.
