Fifty Point is 26 miles southwest of Toronto and 24 miles west of Youngstown and Niagara on the Lake
Approaching Fifty Point watch carefully for 8 tall red communications towers (lit by red aircraft obstruction lights at night) about 1 mile east. In Daylight they tend to blend in with the escarpment backdrop. More readily visible from offshore during the day is a single tall communications tower to the west of Fifty Point. There is a large spit of land 700 feet long and 40 feet high, about 200 feet to the east of the Harbour entrance.
The harbour is entered between 2 rock breakwaters that form a narrow channel.

A green sector light is shown from a circular white tower, 24 feet high with a green upper part on the east breakwater. A red day beacon with a flashing red light (private) on a slender mast can be seen on the west side.
A small arms range, marked by yellow spar buoys and 2 flashing yellow buoys at its north end, is located less than 1.2 mile southeast of Fifty Point. Do not pass through or anchor in the area inside the buoys. Approach from the east lights green sector, visible on any approach from west or north through to a heading of 203°, to avoid the arms range. Once inside the entrance, the channel makes an abrupt turn to starboard; the basin is quiet and well sheltered. Depth in the entrance channel and the basin is 7-9 feet.
