By Water - NOAA Chart 11369

30º 01.73' North Latitude
90º 06.70' West Longitude

SYC is located on the southern shore of Lake Pontchartrain appx. 3 miles west of the mouth of the Inner Harbor Navigation Canal (or "Industrial Canal"), which is the nearest outlet to the Intra-Coastal Waterway.  The Lake may also be approached via The Rigolets (see NOAA Chart 11371).

The clubhouse overlooks the mouth of the Municipal Yacht Harbor and the adjacent New Basin Canal, which leads south to the Orleans Marina. The historic New Canal Lighthouse, with its red roofs, was destroyed by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, but is currently being rebuilt just across the canal from SYC.

Temporary guest dockage is available along the pier and bulkhead to the west of the clubhouse.  SYC does not offer fuel or ramp-launch facilities.

Fuel & provisions are available on the New Basin Canal. A municipal boat launch is located outside of the breakwater, to the west of the harbor entrance.

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