Owned by the Hamilton Conservation Authority, this is a very popular place to visit.
The approaches to Fifty Point are clear from all directions. The harbour is entered between 2 riprap breakwaters marked with a F GREEN sector light on the east breakwater, visible 3.9 nm offshore. There is a private Fl RED light on the west pierhead.
It is important to approach the harbour entrance from the north or west through a heading up to 203°T. There is a Canadian Armed Forces firing range .3 nm east of the channel. That firing range is marked with YELLOW spar buoys and 2 Fl YELLOW lights at the north end. When the range is flying a RED flag, it is forbidden to enter, pass through or anchor in area inside the buoys.
