About Us

At the Fort Walton Yacht Club, you can find warm and welcoming camaraderie from the docks to inside the halls of the Clubhouse. Whether you are visiting from a reciprocal club or are a local member, you will be treated by the finest hospitality around.

Members enjoy their passions which include boating and social activities. FWYC is dedicated to promoting boating throughout the Gulf Coast and abroad while providing a family-friendly atmosphere. The FWYC offers a casual dining experience in the lounge, patio, and Castaway room. The dining room offers a waterfront view and an elevated dining experience.


For over 70 years we have been fostering an appreciation for the pristine waters and white sandy beaches that Emerald Coast has to offer in the Florida Panhandle. We teach children, teens, and adults how to sail through our non-profit partnership with the Emerald Coast Sailing Association. We provide summer camps and lessons to anyone interested in learning how to sail. Our sailing lessons are open to the public.
We host and participate in local regattas year-round. We provide advanced lessons through our sailing instructor and workshops.

Power Boating

There is a fellowship amongst the boaters that includes activities such as fishing trips, raft ups, and cruising events. We host various fishing rodeos throughout the year and are “captured” once a year by the Krewe of Bowlegs. While under siege, they begin their journey at the FWYC to take over Fort Walton Beach during the Billy Bowlegs Pirate Annual Festival.

Social Activities

The club hosts events and social activities year-round. Events such as wine tastings, movie & game nights, murder mystery theatre dinner, music in the lounge, family friendly festivals, an annual member appreciation celebration “Eggnog Party”, Commodore’s Ball, and much more.

As a member of The Fort Walton Yacht Club, you can host private events, get-togethers, birthday parties, weddings, anniversary parties, and all other events alike. We have indoor spaces that can hold an event or outdoor spaces that include a gazebo, pavilion, playground, beaches, and swim dock that are ideal for entertaining as well.
