Baileys Harbor was born from the need of a natural “Port in a Storm” for Captain Justice Bailey in the year 1848. Since that day, the need for a modern day “Harbor of Refuge” along Lake Michigan’s untamed waters has been realized. It is out of that need that the year 2000 brought about the construction to the Baileys Harbor Town Marina.
Whether a pleasure boater on a day sail, the serious yachtsman, angler, or just the opportunity to sit shore side and enjoy the sensational vistas surrounding our facility, our staff and community are here to serve your needs.
Our Marina fulfills the needs of the yachting and sport fishing public as a full service facility with gas and diesel refueling, current weather reports; seasonal or transient slip rentals, a reservations system, and acceptance of major credit cards. If you have the need to launch your boat there are four-lit launch ramps and short parking available in designated Parking lots A & B. Long term parking designated in Lot C.
Boaters can appreciate the convenience of restrooms, shower, and a laundry adjacent to the Marina in the Harbor Master headquarters. A fish cleaning station is provided for anglers catching the “big one”.
During your stay, you will never be more than minutes away from shopping, dining, a cool beverage, or many of the outdoor recreational amenities our community has to offer.
Come check out our Marina and watch the sun rise over the waters of Lake Michigan, upward into the violet-orange skyline until daylight peeps out to greet you a “Good Morning”. Should you wish to simply unwind, grab a fishing pole, set sail, or mingle with the local fishermen, we hope to see you soon.
