COVID-19 UPDATE: Chicago Harbors facilities closed through April 7th Read more »

DuSable Harbor is located in the heart of downtown Chicago at the foot of Randolph Street.  Surrounded by a towering skyline and being the only harbor with slips close to the loop, it is a very popular mooring location.  Hemmed in by the Columbia Yacht Club to the south, the harbor was completed in 2000 by closing in part of Monroe Harbor, thus the entrance is thru Monroe Harbor headed north along the eastern breakwater.  There are 420 slips at DuSable with accommodations for boats 30’-60’+ in length.

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 67.
