Due to a change in the U.S. Coast Guard policy allowing the use of electronic tide and tidal current predictions to meet carriage requirements for vessels operating in U.S. waters, NOAA will eliminate the paper publications of the annual Tide Tables and Tidal Current Tables by 2020. NOAA will still have all NOAA Tide Predictions and NOAA Current predictions available in electronic form online.

NOAA 2019 tide tables are now available. NOAA tide predictions are used by both commercial and recreational mariners for safe navigation. Printed tide tables provide users with tide and tidal current predictions in an easy-to-read format for particular locations. NOAA's Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services produce these tide tables on an annual basis.

Member nations of the International Hydrographic Organization make their annual tide and tidal current predictions publically available. This allows each member country to produce annual predictions for locations around the world, in their native language, for use by mariners, shipping industry, and recreational sector. NOAA's annual tide and tidal current tables include predictions for more than 10,000 international locations.

You can get tide predictions and tidal current predictions online for U.S. coastal stations and some islands in the Pacific and Caribbean, for up to two years. NOAA also provides printed copies of the 2018 Tide Tables and Tidal Current Tables, visit the Tides and Currents website.

Since World War II, U.S. Coast Guard regulation 33 CFR 164.33 requires that all commercial vessels operating in U.S. waters must have copies of the annual tide and tidal current tables for their area.
