Southern Yacht Club is located on the southern shore of Lake Pontchartrain, appx. 3 miles west of the mouth of the Inner Harbor Navigation Canal, which is the nearest outlet to the Intracoastal Waterway.  Lake Pontchartrain is an estuary of the Gulf of Mexico and may also be approached via The Rigolets (see NOAA Chart 11371).

The clubhouse overlooks the mouth of the New Orleans Municipal Yacht Harbor and the adjacent New Basin Canal, which leads southward to the Orleans Marina. The historic New Canal Lighthouse, with its red roofs, stands just across the canal from SYC.

Temporary mooring is available along the pier and bulkhead to the west of the clubhouse and in the New Basin Canal.  Fuel & provisions are available on the New Basin Canal.  SYC does not offer fuel or ramp-launch facilities.  A municipal boat launch is located outside of the Municipal Yacht Harbor breakwater, to the west of the harbor entrance.

SYC monitors VHF 68 or 69 with the call-sign "Bunkhouse".
