Crowley's Yacht Yard is located 12 miles south of Monroe
Street Harbor, two bridges in from the Calumet harbor.
Boaters not familiar with the area should use NOAA Charts
14926 & 14929 for directions and for avoiding hazards.
The 92nd Street and 95th Street bridges open on demand.
They are manned 24-hours a day, seven days a week. The
City of Chicago Department of Transportation has asked
that we encourage our customers to limit bridge openings
to between 9:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Arriving boaters
requiring a bridge lift should hail the 92nd Street
bridge tender on VHF Channel 16 after
entering the Calumet River. Give the bridge tender your
boat name and location, and request a bridge lift. Ask
the bridge tender if he/she is aware of any commercial
traffic that you should avoid. Wait for any large freighters
to clear the river before you proceed. Give commercial
traffic a wide berth. If you see other mast-up vessels
nearby, try to transit the bridges together. Crowley's
will be monitoring VHF Channel 16.
Crowley's Yacht Yard docks and hauling facilities are
on the south side of 95th Street. You must continue
past the 95th Street bridge to reach our docking and
hauling area. Please secure your boat port side to the
dock, with three fenders and four docklines (bow, stern,
and two spring lines).
