There's a lot going on at NOAA's National Ocean Service.
All NOAA tide and tidal current predictions for locations around the nation are available in electronic form online. NOAA eliminated paper publications of the annual Tide Tables and Tidal Current Tables in 2020. The change from print to online tables allows us to modernize this long-standing product by bringing it into the digital age.
