The Dolphin Club is a volunteer-led community of 1675 members, centered at Aquatic Park, with a boathouse at Lake Merced. The Club was founded in 1877 with twenty-five charter members whose commitment to spending more time in and on the Bay continues to inspire today’s Dolphins.  

The Club is open fully to vaccinated members, daily from 5 am-9 pm. Masks are required indoors. Members can bring two guests into the outdoor areas of the Club. For additional information, contact
