Currents

Hello.

Is there a web site that we can access which shows us the currents? I can always find the tides but never the currents. Does this exist out there?

Michael

Re: Currents

Open CPN has some surrent data, you can also access the NOAA Pilot Charts which have predicted carrent data for each month. I also use Admiralty Total Tide which has some current data, luckily I have free access to this program, its not cheap

Re: Currents

A lot of computer navigation systems on PC's have tide and current information built in or attachable.
- - There are also stand alone tide and current programs like Tides32 - WXTide32 - Tides and Currents for Win9x/NT
