Private boating club on the South River.
The Marshfield Yacht Club was established in 1954 with the mission to manage, run, and operate a non-profit association for the purposes of boating, sailing and entertainment. Members raised funds with fairs and water shows to build their own clubhouse. Floats and a mooring basin were added in 1975. The building was enlarged in 1985. The club sponsors social events and can be rented for functions and special occasions. It serves as home port to 99 vessels and is limited to 350 members.
Habitats and Wildlife
The South River, like the North River, is a beautiful tidal estuary where wildlife abounds! Paddling or boating on this estuary allows you to go shellfishing, fishing or just exploring. Downstream there are salt marshes and numerous creeks, host to egrets and blue heron. You might even see a bald eagle! Soft shell clams, better known as “steamers,” hardshell clams, as well as razor clams can be found in the tidal flats, and can be harvested with a permit between November 1ts and May 31st.
