The RKYC Welcomes Visiting Yachts
The RKYC has been welcoming boaters from around the world for over 100 years and we are always pleased when yachts and their crews make a stop at our club/marina. You will find our members hospitable, helpful and willing to share their knowledge and love of the area.
Clearing In - Customs and Immigration
The RKYC is both a CANPASS and a designated telephone reporting site which means you can call 1 800 CANPASS when entering or returning to Canada and the Customs and Immigration Officers will meet you at the RKYC. Give them a call upon arrival or as you are approaching Saint John and they will instruct you on what procedures they need you to follow. The office is open from 8:00 AM until 12:00 midnight, seven days a week. CANPASS holders may have other reporting options. Visit www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca for more information.
