Transient docking is available; you can submit reservation requests through the Dockwa app or website beginning May 1st.  There is a fuel dock at Diversey Harbor located at the Diversey Yacht Club with gas and diesel fuels.  Additionally, there is a 2-lane launch ramp with parking for approximately 67 vehicles with trailers.  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 69.
