Burnt Store Isles Boat Club
Punta Gorda Florida

BSIBC began in 1989 with 52 Charter Members, as a boating club for residents of Burnt Store Isles, in Punta Gorda, FL.  BSIBC promotes safe boating, furthering our boating and marine education, supporting our law enforcement agencies, protecting our marine environment and enjoying good fellowship among the boating and non-boating members of Burnt Store Isles, Fl.


A Big Thanks:

To Bill Bareither for conducting boat safety inspections

Fellow boat club member Bill Bareither has been doing free annual boat safety inspections for some time. This season he has, so far, conducted 8 safety inspections for our member's boats. 

Bill may also be able to conduct inspections on other dates if you give him a call at 941-637-9473  to setup an appointment and get your "sticker".

Thanks Bill!!!


Hazards to Navigation



The Markers that Hurricane Irma destroyed at the entrance to Alligator Creek have been replaced but please continue to use extra caution in the area. It has also been reported that water is about 1 foot deep near marker 13 and 14 and that several boats have gone aground. 

2. Relocation of Stump Pass Buoys:  Click here for a chart updating the relocations of the buoys  in Stump Pass and other navigation signs added by the County.  This relocation of buoys took place on Monday June 12.  This updated chart replaces the one posted on the boat club website last week.

It's the law

Welcome to the Burnt Store Isles Boat Club web site.  We are a group of people that reside in Burnt Store Isles and share common interests in boating and social events.  While our primary focus is boating, both cruising and fishing, we do have many social events.  We provide information for our members that relate to our waterways and provide information from other boating related entities.  Take the time to surf our website.  There is a vast amount of information available that is updated regularly.

 You do not have to own a boat to belong to the Club.  We encourage those without boats to join those that do for many of our cruises.  For those that fish, we have within the Boat Club, a Fishing Club.  They hold regular meetings and frequently bring in speakers.  We are a very friendly group of people that enjoy boating and getting together.

If you are a member of this community, please consider joining our great organization.  We live in one of the nicest estuaries in the country that boasts great boating and fishing, to say nothing of our proximity to the Gulf Islands and the Gulf of Mexico.  Click to read "member benefits"
