Small tidal stream inaccuracies can develop when advancing beyond HW Dover +6. Because of this we only enable today's tidal stream chartlets to advance 24 hours. Future tidal planning is best accomplished by using Little Saltee (west side)'s future tides predictor below.
The above image represents the current tidal streams offshore of this haven. Streams attaining three knots and above are highlighted by red arrows . All times are in local time with red text indicating springs, blue indicating neaps and gray between tidal events. Click [+] to advance the estimate by an hour and click [-] to step back.

Arrows represent the direction of tidal streams with lighter or shorter arrows indicating weaker streams. Stronger streams are indicated by heavier or longer arrows, and as mentioned above, red arrows flagging rates of 3 knots and above. Numerals represent [mean neap, mean spring] rates in tenths of a knot. For example the numbers 12,23 would indicate a mean neap of 1.2 knots and a mean spring of 2.3 knots.

Direction of stream outside the harbour:
Dover HW to +0500 west-southwest
Dover HW +0600 to -0100 east-northeast
Between Carnsore Point and the Saltees:
East by northeast stream commences +0525 Dover (-0110 Cobh) spring rate 2.4kn.
West by southwest stream commences-0040 Dover (+0510 Cobh) spring rate 2.6kn.
South of the Saltees the streams rotate clockwise:
East going flood stream commences North +0535 Dover (-0120 Cobh), spring rate 1.7 kn, turning east northeast approximately three hours later and ends in a south-easterly direction.
West going ebb stream commences south at -0020 Dover (+0530 Cobh) spring rate 1.9kn turning west by south approximately three hours later and ends in a north-westerly direction.
Particularly strong tides are to be found in Saltee Sound where spring rate tides can reach 3.5kn and do not set fairly through the sound with many eddies.
Expect a slack water of approximately 1 hour between the tides.
This tool can be used to estimate future costal tidal streams for this area. All that is required are two simple steps:
Step 1: What is the Dover High Water for the target date?
Use a current Dover Tide Table to find Dover High Water for the target date. The National Oceanography Centre offers online tidal predictions for up to 28 days from today. Click here to open their tide table for Dover
Step 2: Input the target date's Dover High Water
Taking a mean tidal offset from Dover's tide, we expect your targetted date's associated local tide at to be:
High waters: Low waters:
Data based on an average tide is only accurate to within one hour, if you more precise times are required use the ISA tidal predictions, with Cobh offset +01:13.

Admiralty Chart 2049 ‘Old Head of Kinsale to Tuskar Rock’ scale of 1:150,000 covers this sailing area. The key chart for this area is the large scale British Admiralty 2740 that coves the Saltee Islands & Kilmore Quay at a scale of 1:25,000. Likewise Admiralty SC5621.16. It should be noted that this chart is not to WGS84. Imray charts C57, with an inset, and C61 overlap in this area plus Discovery Ordinance Survey map 77 covers the land area.
