Marina help was practically non-existent. The cafe at the marina opened and closed according to when employees showed up. The laundry is a one machine joke. Restrooms are very unpleasant.

5 stars for location and the marina itself! 3 stars for the rest rooms & showers. The marina staff needs a better map of the area to give to boaters!

Location cannot be beat!!! Right downtown within walking distance to a really cool unique grocery store. Dockhands were helpful but not intrusive. Highly recommend.

Sean and Keith went out of their way to make sure that our stay was as enjoyable as possible. A big thank you to each of them.

The Marina had awesome views of the City. Staff was friendly and welcomed us. We would definitely stay there again!

Wonderful! I was celebrating my birthday with 3 other boats from Hammond Marina! Slips were the correct size and we had the electrical hook-up needed to run our boat!. Thanks!

Great harbor with a fantastic view and access to the city. Very accommodating as we had to stay an extra day due to weather.

We hope to see you again soon!

Nice location downtown, shopping nearby. Bathrooms are a long walk. The docks are nice. They do not have fuel

We hope to see you again soon.

The seagulls were horrible we were at the end of the T dock It was covered in poop literally covered. Within minnthey were landing on our boat and pooping everywhere. According to the sail boats around they are there until around Aug first It was no use cleaning the boat They just kept coming.

Nice marina, great staff. Great restaurant right by office So you don't have to go into town if you choose not to. I would never stay there again because of the seagulls there were thousands of them, we felt like we were in the movie, the birds.

by strattm on Jun 30, 2018

The staff met us at the dock. Very helpful to see someone hailing us and showing us where to go. Everyone we met there was friendly and helpful. We thought the shower/bathroom was a bit chilly and dark, but otherwise a good place to stay. Thanks!

wifi doesn't work and staff could not help

by madeur on Jun 21, 2018

Beautiful place to stay in the heart of Chicago, just south of Navy Pier! Easy walk to Navy Pier, and public transport readily available. Rates aren’t cheap, but location, location, location!!

Love the staff and loved our stay😎

by maxstrycker on May 29, 2018

The overall facility was ok. However the first night I was there (5/18), I returned to the boat rather late (2am) and my gate code did not work. Thankfully the security guy was there. I saw he was in the car and tapped on his window. Unfortunately he was reclined in his seat, mouth open, fast asleep. After tapping progressively harder, he finally woke up, righted his seat and scolded me for tapping on his window. After making me try the not working code once again, he begrudgingly slammed his car in drive, pulled forward the 20 feet to the gate and tried my code. Still not working he was able to let me in with his code but made it very clear that this would be the only time that he would help. Needless to say, it was not an overly positive experience.

Very convenient location and wonderful stay. Great slip and fantastic views of Chicago.

by misslily on Sep 28, 2017

Wonderful friendly marina. We were on F dock so a real hike to the showers and office. Bathrooms were clean with great water pressure. Staff were very helpful and took the time to help with directions and information. Beautiful location with easy access to my favorite grocery ever close dog park and easy to get anywhere in the city. Was pricey but well worth the stay.

by celmem on Aug 21, 2017

This review refused to accept my "awesome" click. Great marina is run very well, friendly and helpful. Facilities are very good. Great location. Wifi is terrible.

Oh did not appreciate Dockwa taking full payment upfront!

by captcoho on Aug 19, 2017

Bath/toilet room just okay. No boaters lounge. Fantastically awesome location! Power boaters tend to create big wake in Marina basin

by philinchicago on Aug 13, 2017

Great location and friendly staff.

by cbmurch on Jul 22, 2017

Dock hands so-so. ( No help on docking, not very knowledgeable on area). Good location. Wi-Fi so-so. Pump out very good. City map should be provided. We enjoyed our stay in Chicago.

by jessiebollinger on Jul 08, 2017

Staff friendly and helpful. Clean bathrooms. Great security. Friendly boat neighbors. Thank you. Was at the end of dock F. No water pressure. VERY loud Gulls from 4:30 am till 10 pm. Land a lot on the boats.

by tyf8838 on Jul 03, 2017

A phone call would have been nice before giving my reserved slip away and having to move after tied up. Also, no one answered when calling on radio. Other than that, it was very nice.

by jaw497 on Jun 11, 2017

Great marina, staff is very helpful and friendly. It the best marina to stay at in the city.

by jscox48 on Jul 24, 2012

This is an easy marina to get to and is close to everything downtown. Facilities are good but don't expect help with lines while docking. Neighbor boaters are good to help. High price to pay but it is downtown.

About DuSable Harbor, the Chicago Harbors

Please Note: 2-3 night minimum may be charged for special events of holidays. DuSable Harbor has a 30' minimum.

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’-70’+ in length.

Transient docking is available; please visit our Dockwa page or call the harbor office for reservations any time after May 1st. Waste pump-out equipment is provided on a no-charge basis on the end-cap of D-Dock. The harbor monitors VHF channels 9 and 16 and the switch to/working channel is 67.
