Boating & Marinas

With over 17 miles of coastline, it is not surprising that water activities are very popular. Boating is one of Milford's favorite past times. There are a number of ways to enjoy Long Island Sound and the Housatonic River. There are two public Boat Launches. The city ramp is located at Fowler Field, in downtown Milford and there is a state ramp on the Housatonic River located off of Naugatuck Avenue in Devon under the I-95 overpass.

There are fees to utilize both ramps. Boaters can either purchase a seasonal pass or pay daily. For more information on the city ramp, contact the Tax Collector at 203-783-3217 or Milford Landing Operations Manager at 203-874-1610 and for the state ramp call 203-735-4311.

Milford Landing Marina at the Head of the Harbor is a municipal marina that offers visiting boaters several amenities, such as concierge service, launch ramp, tennis and basketball courts, pump out service, ice and water, electricity, laundering and showering facilities and a barbecue area. For reservations, contact (203) 874-1610.

Residents can come and enjoy the picnic tables, rose garden and landscaped walkway along the harbor leading up to the Hotchkiss Memorial Footbridge, that crosses the Harbor offering a breathtaking view of the waterfall underneath the memorial bridge.

Milford Boat Works is a full service marina with a gas dock and offers slips for transient boaters.

The Milford Yacht Club is another marina offering services for visiting boaters, such as a swimming pool and showering facilities.

In addition, there are numerous private docks and facilities for the State Agricultural and National Marine Fisheries laboratories in Milford Harbor.
