Welcome to the website of the Victoria Cruising Club (VCC). We are a group of people that enjoy the active boating lifestyle in a club with low dues and high social interaction.

Our goals are simple:

      • To foster pleasure-boat cruising and provide a medium for the exchange of information related to pleasure boating;
      • To develop a fraternal spirit and conduct sporting and social events connected with pleasure boating;
      • To promote safe pleasure boating practices and quality standards of sportsmanship;
      • To affiliate with associations or organizations having objectives in whole or in part similar to those of the Society.


We include all kinds of sail and power boats and like to welcome new members. If your boat is resident in the southern part of Vancouver Island (south of North Cowichan) and you would like to get involved in our club, please contact us via one of the links below.

The Victoria Cruising Club originally started as the Victoria Outboard Club in 1956. Members’ vessels were not very large, but they managed to go cruising none the less (complete with small family members and the usual pet).

Around 1972 the Club’s name was changed to the “Victoria Cruising Club” reflecting the general change in our cruising membership from outboard power to mainly inboard power boats. The Victoria Cruising Club has operated continuously since then, offering friendship and companionship to members. 

The club is an active fun group of boat owners. We are a cruising club, not yacht club therefore no weekend maintenance!  With families and friends we explore the Gulf Islands.  We don’t stand on ceremony – we just go boating!
