yeah REALLY depends what you are looking for. Full restaurant with dinner every night, bar, parties, social events... or a primarily cruising club... or something in between We are past members of a club that has a bar and restaurant on the weekends. I was Commodore there. It was a LOT of work but we enjoyed it. We moved our boat to another area and now belong to a cruising club with no facilities. I ran the cruise outs last year and am helping this year and it is great fun to pick the destinations and visit new places. My husband is Commodore this year. We also belong to an Island. Doesn't that sound fancy? No running water, no electricity, just docks and shaded decks. They have a work party requirement but it is one a year and a great group. We enjoy going there on weekends when we might otherwise not have used our boat or don't feel like taking a big trip. (it is not too far from where we keep the boat.) Belonging to those two clubs is less than half of what our old club cost a year.
Meet as many people as you can and make sure you like at least some of them.
We have very much enjoyed using our reciprocal privileges and we have visited some wonderful clubs around the world.
