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 Ross Bay'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.

Along the coast between Loop Head and Galway Bay, tidal streams run in the direction of the coast with a Spring Rate of about a knot. Galway -0320 (Dover +0300) NE going, Galway +0305(Dover -0300) SW going. Offshore currents, at about 6 miles north-northeast of Loop Head, set east and southwest at half a knot. Offshore currents at about eight miles west southwest of Cape Cancregga set north and southwest at a speed of about one third of a knot.
