NOAA 2015 tide tables are now available. NOAA tide tables have been in production for more than 100 years and are used by both commercial and recreational mariners for safe navigation. Printed tide tables provide the user with tide and tidal current predictions in an easy-to-read format for a particular location. NOAA's Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services and predecessor agencies have been producing these tide tables since 1867. Tide tables are produced annually and come out in October.
Under International Hydrographic Organization, member nations are requested to make their annual tide and tidal current predictions available. This allows each member country to produce annual predictions for locations around the world, in their native language, for use by their 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 for up to two years. These services cannot provide international locations. For information on obtaining a printed copy of the 2015 Tide Tables and Tidal Current Tables, visit the Tides and Currents website.
