Durban Ski-Boat Club is one of the largest Ski Boat Clubs in the country and hosts the biggest Off Shore Fishing Competition in the world every April. Although primarily a fishing club, it is also a great place for families to spend the weekend. We have an awesome, large grass patch which overlooks the harbour entrance. It is a short walk to the best beach in Durban which is ideal for families, especially those with small children, as there are no strong currents or pounding surf to deal with while having a swim in the warm Indian Ocean, protected by Vetch’s Pier.

What’s on at Durban Ski Boat Club?

Wednesday night

You’ve made it half way through the week so come down to the club for an early dinner while waving to the ships as they go by.

Friday night

Friday is family night at our club. Bring your family down and enjoy live music and sunowners! A reminder of our Friday specials: Eisbein and Prawn Curry.

Saturday and Sunday

Weekends are made for the beach and sun-tanning on the grass, or simply watching the world go by!

Saturdays are for sport on one of our many big screen tellys and relaxing with a drink and a meal in the sun and enjoying the view.

Sundays are the big day for club members and families. Live music is on offer from one of several of Durban’s fine singers or bands. The kitchen gets super busy on good weather Sundays, so order early, sit back and have a few extra drinks while you wait. Charcoal and firelighters are available for free for our members if you want to have your own braai.


Firstly a final reminder of the PWC Family Day tomorrow starting from 9am. Father Christmas will arrive at 11h00. We have a fantastic morning of entertainment organised for the kids.. so come down and enjoy what is supposed to be an awesome sunny day.. before the rain comes again!! To cool off there will be one waterslide which has two slides…

Access to the club from 15th December 2017 to 7th January 2018

Please bear in mind that there is essentially only one access road to the club which is by the uShaka main entrance. ALL traffic moving into the Point area going to the PWC club, uShaka, the residential apartments and offices, needs to access the area via this road. This means that after about 9am in the morning until about 5pm (maybe later), there will be congestion along this access road, so plan the timing of your visits to the club over the holiday period with this in mind.

Over busy periods (which is essentially when the uShaka parking is full), only vehicles with permits will be allowed beyond the traffic control station in Point Road. (Mahatma Ghandi Road)

YOUR CLUB CARD IS YOUR ACCESS PERMIT…. So make sure your family have a membership card with them. If you come down early for fishing and ask your family to join you later and they don’t have a membership card with them, they may be refused access to the area.

If you are planning to invite guests to the club, it would be best if they came with you in your vehicle as they may not be able to pass the traffic control point without an access permit or membership card. It happens every year that people are disappointed, frustrated and angry at not being able to access the club over the busy period after waiting in the traffic jam for an hour only to be told to turn around or find parking 2kms from the club.

Beach Access for the next two years:
If you are still to visit the club and are not aware of the changes in the area, please note that the area around the old clubs have been fenced off and there is no longer any direct access to the Vetches beach via the old club areas. There are only two Vetches beach access points, one at your PWC club and the other through uShaka. This will make for interesting times for all of us over the holidays!!

PWC Holiday Opening Hours:
Monday to Sunday:
Kitchen: 7am to 8pm
