In accordance with Governor Pritzker’s “stay-at-home” order, all docks, boat storage facilities, parking lots, launch ramps, and other harbor properties will be closed to the public through April 7. We will keep you updated as this changes.

  • Boat Storage Closure: As mentioned above, unfortunately, both 31st Street and Montrose Harbor boat storage facilities will be closed to the public beginning March 21 through April 7.
  • Delaying Spring Launch: We are delaying the launching of winter storage boats at 31st Street and Montrose until early April pending the lift of the “stay-at-home” order. As the situation changes, we will contact customers with updates.

GENERAL HARBOR UPDATES:

  • Harbor Openings: Despite the recent public health situation, the Chicago Harbors are still planning to open on schedule thanks to the mild winter and the hard work of our maintenance crews.
  • Extended Boating Season: With our April 15th “early arrivals” window closing in on us, we have received permission from the Chicago Park District to extend the 2020 Chicago Harbors season to November 15th for all customers. Previously only “late leaver” permit holders at Burnham Harbor could stay through that date.
  • Individual Harbor Offices: Harbor offices will remain closed until May 1st. Prior to this date, please respect the need for “social distancing” and contact the administration office at 312-741-3601 or by email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
