59th Street Harbor
59th Street Harbor is located in Jackson Park, a very short walk to the Museum of Science and Industry and the 63rdStreet 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; please call the harbor directly for reservations any time after May 15. Waste pump-out equipment is provided on a no-charge basis.
