The Barbados Cruising Club is a family friendly, totally inclusive sailing club located right on the beach at the south end of Carlisle Bay, on Barbados' south coast.  The core aim of our club is to make marine activities available to everyone on the island.  Primarily sailing, but our stunning beach front location, in sheltered Carlisle Bay is perfect for swimmers, snorkellers, kayakers or for those who just want a lazy day on the golden sands.

Our club is home to Dippers Beach Bar and Restaurant. With uninterrupted views of historic Carlisle Bay from the bar and first floor outdoor terrace, there's no better place to relax and watch the evening sunset.


The Barbados Cruising Club deliberately keeps its membership fees as low as possible, to encourage as many as we can to join the fun and get onto the water.   Members are entitled to use the full range of facilities at the Club, and receive a 15% discount on food and beverage purchases at the bar, and at a number of businesses around Barbados.
