About Monroe Harbor

NOTE: Your stay will not be on floating docks, but instead on our fixed bulkhead wall. It is highly recommended that you rig the vessel with plenty of fenders at the rub rail of your vessel and approach with caution.

Monroe Harbor is located in the heart of downtown Chicago and its 824 mooring cans combine to create the central panorama of the Chicago skyline. Iconic to the Chicago Harbors, Monroe has a strong community of long-time boaters many of whom love the nostalgia and history of this harbor at the foot of the city. Home to the Chicago Yacht Club and Columbia Yacht Club, the harbor is a central focal point of the lakefront.

A frequent and convenient tender service is available; please hail on channel 68 for pick-up. There are accommodations for boats 25’-80’ in length. Transient mooring is also available. Additionally, there is waste pump-out equipment at the northern end of the harbor that is provided on a no-charge basis. The harbor monitors channels 9 and 16 and the switch to/working channel is 68.
