Milford Harbor, comprising the lower portion of the Wepawaug River, is entered at the mouth of the river between two jetties at the head of The Gulf. The westerly jetty extends southward from Burns Point, and the easterly jetty is marked by Milford Harbor Light 10.
A dredged channel leads from The Gulf through the jettied entrance to a point about 400 feet above the town wharf, 0.6 mile above Burns Point. In 2008, the controlling depths were 5.6 feet (6.7 feet at midchannel) to the Town Dock and 6.5 feet in the anchorage basin along the west side of the channel. The channel is marked by a light and lighted and unlighted buoys.
