About


Southport Marina has distinguished itself as an alternative to larger, more impersonal and institutional facilities. Southport is a public facility with the feel of a private marina, large enough to provide boaters with everything they need, yet small enough that you can walk into the office and speak with one of the owners.

Southport Marina is conveniently located in the center of Kenosha's new Harbor Park Development. The marina is within walking distance to several fine restaurants that offer a variety of dining experiences. Additionally, there is a full range of services located in the downtown area all within walking distance to the marina.

As a full-service marina, we offer everything you may need for your life on the water.

The facilities are great and up to date. However, the pier we were assigned was covered in goose droppings. We had to wash down the pier ourselves for 20 minutes before we could walk on it. Luckily another boat nearby had a hose on his dock

Awesome marina. Prompt response to my questions. Access cards were at the fuel dock as we arrived after the office closed (430 pm on a Friday?, to.early in my opinion). Restrooms were clean and docks were wide and debris free. Easy walk to restaurants and fantastic farmers market on Saturday morning. Friendly people on the docks. We were in a group of three boats. Nice, safe, marina, we will be back. Thank you.

1. Windy day - we were asked to stop at the fuel dock to pick up key. This is an extra stop for a large boat in wind with other boats in line at the fuel dock. We declined and were finally allowed to check in at the office (as we do at other marinas). Very poor service to ask a large boat to tie up twice, especially in wind. 2. Our slip had no number on it (fell off?). Additionally, very difficult to read any of the numbers - faint print. 3. Office staff unfriendly and gruff. 4. Our pier was literally covered with bird poop! We could not get to/from our boat without stepping in some. Disgusting! 5. Summary - dirty, unfriendly marina. Would not recommend to others.

Excellent marina! Steps to downtown Kenosha, which is a gem of a town. All the facilities were clean and in good shape. The marina graciously accommodated our after hours arrival and there was a drop off box for the keys that saved us a long walk to the main office. We had some much fun here that we're already planning our trip back next year.

The marina was spotless. The dock hand at the fuel dock didn’t know what he was doing.

Nice place, wide floating docks, and close to town. The only issue we had is that we had a (10) hour journey to get to Southport Marina and arrived at 4:35pm. We did not realize that they closed at 4:30 and was not notified regarding this issue! So after 4:30PM they will not response to your VHF radio. We were lucky that the fuel dock attendant was still present to give us an access key to the docks and restrooms and found us an open slip. We had to ask another boat owner for the WiFi passcode.

Was here with the Chicago Yacht Club power fleet for the weekend. Kenosha and the harbor rolled out the red carpet for us. It was a wonderful time. Can't wait to go back. Thanks to everyone.

Very nice marina, friendly people and reasonably good location. Town does not have ad much to offer, especially in walking distance as some other harbor towns. Marina facilities are great.

The marina does not monitor the VHF (it's a marina!) , so after multiple hailing, we phoned. The person we spoke to, at 4Pm, failed to tell us that the marina office closes at 4:30pm (on a Friday!), so we were lucky that we saw an employee leaving the facility at 4:35pm who helped us, if we would not have had access to the facilities. WiFi connection was poor/non-existent. Weeds are terrible. The gas dock is unmanned, and again, they don't monitor the radio. They seem to rely heavily on the marina residents to point out wher the call box is in order to get help. All in all...we remain dis-appointed in South Port Marina in Kenosha.
