Hey yo.

Been looking for a resource to determine tidal current on a chart - it's pretty handy for scoping new spots. The Navionics app has some, but they are quite far apart and near things like harbour entrances - not always helpful.

I managed to find a PDF of the Waitemata harbour tidal directions which was pretty insightful (message me if you want a copy) but interested to know if any of you have resources or links to where I can get this information if it's available.

Sometimes the tidal current moves in a completely different direction to what you may have predicted once you get out to a new spot.

Yo thanks for that Mental.

I think that's the one I have already - I forgot where I got it from but it was probably here haha.

What would be cool is if anyone knows where to get similar information for different areas. A website or app or charts.
