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 Kilmore Quay'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.

For more accuracy Kilmore Quay is Cobh +0019sp, +0009np.
Expect a slack water of approximately 1 hour between the tides. The tidal stream crosses the approach path to the quay at right angles and has spring rates that attain speeds of 3.5 knots. The east-going tide presents the potential danger of vessels being pushed onto St Patrick’s Bridge. It is at its full run between HW Cobh +0100 and +0300.
Direction of stream outside the harbour:
Dover HW to +0500 west-southwest
Dover HW +0600 to -0100 east-northeast
Tidal streams do not set fairly through Saltee Sound and there are many eddies.
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 -01:00.

Dublin Maritime Rescue Co-ordination Centre (MRCC) VHF Ch.83 covers the area from Carlingford Lough to Youghal. Carlingford (04), Wicklow Head (02), Rosslare (23) and Mine Head (83) provide relay stations. Coastguard Radio is always called on a working channel. Emergencies are worked on 16, 67 and working channel.
Alternatively, or if ashore, phone 999 or 112 (free) and ask for ‘Marine Rescue’. Gardai (police), Fire and Rescue are also available on this number. Dublin (MRSC) may be contacted directly on +353 (0) 1 662 0922/3. There is an all-weather Mersey Class Lifeboat at Kilmore Quay.

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 covering the Saltee Islands & Kilmore Quay at a scale of 1:25,000. This is the best chart if you plan to explore these waters. Imray charts C57 and C61 overlap in this area, plus Discovery Ordinance Survey map 77 covers the land area.
