There are many totally free excellent apps that will show you (as well as swell hgt/direction, wind
strength direction etc). Try 'Windy'. It is slick, colorful, and in my experience spot on for forecasting. (20yrs at Sea Naval Officer and now professional delivery skipper

...also you can go directly to NOAA's RTOFS for Gulf Stream
Or, if you have a GRIB viewer which supports it, like SailGRIB WR, then you can download surface current
data in GRIB format directly from Copernicus.
"Windy" consolidates data from these and other sources and presents it very nicely.
