2020 Harbor Closing Notice Read more »

59th Street Harbor is located in Jackson Park, a very short walk to the Museum of Science and Industry and the 63rd Street Beach.  With slips for 125 boats from 25’-35’ in length, 59th Street Harbor’s smaller size and friendly community make it a beautiful mooring location along Lake Michigan set in the lagoons from the 1893 Columbian Exposition.  It is the home of Museum Shores Yacht Club.

Transient docking is available; you can submit reservation requests through the Dockwa app or website beginning May 1st.  Waste pump-out equipment is provided on a no-charge basis. The harbor monitors channels 9 and 16 and the switch to/working channel is 68.
