The harbor staff at Waukegan are great. We are transient boaters all summer and stay at 20+ different harbors each year. Waukegan's staff are consistently the best we find anywhere. It's a very large harbor with a lot of boats and they manage it well.
The staff at Harbor Center marina were helpful giving us a slip that worked well for our sailboat without bow thrusters. We always appreciate marinas who go the extra distance to be helpful to boaters. The facilities are very nice.
The team at Reefpoint are very helpful and accommodating. They assign us slips that work well for our sailboat without bow thrusters. The facilities are kept clean, neat and in good condition. It always great to visit there.
The harbor master, Sean, and his team did a great job making our stay in Chicago's downtown harbor a good one. They assigned us a slip that worked well for getting in and out of. They met us at the dock when we arrived to tie up. They keep the bathrooms clean and in good working order, which is no small feat with the number of tourists and homeless people in the area who find their way into the private boaters' bathrooms and don't have an "owners' mentality" of keeping things neat. We spend a week or more in DuSable harbor each summer and the team there do a great job.
