Revised January 2016

The Citadel Boating Center began as the Citadel Yacht Club and has been in existence since the 1920's. Access to the facility began as a small creek meandering through the marsh - accessible at high tide only. Through the efforts of then President General Mark Clark the channel was constructed in 1955 for better access to the Ashley River. The Boating Center has a small fleet of power boats  and canoes that are available for use by Citadel Faculty, Staff, Cadets and Graduate Students who have passed the South Carolina Basic Boating Course and the Citadel Boating Safety Course. The Boating Center Staff teaches boater safety courses on campus by appointment.  The Boating Center has a large clubhouse with kitchen facilities, restrooms and a large open outdoor deck with grills, as well as a floating dock for access to water.

The following is The Citadel's inventory for boats to rent:

  • 7 Outboard Boats
