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 White 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.

The flood tide sets in the first instance into White Bay, and then obliquely across to Crosshaven, where it is again bent into a northeasterly direction, producing corresponding counter tides and eddies along both shores. The ebb tide has a directly opposite tendency. The average velocity of the tides is no more than 2 knots, but about the Turbot bank and Harbour Rock, and also in the narrows off Monkstown and in the East Passage they often reach 3kt.
Tide time in the entrance:
Dover +0055 (-0540 Cobh) the ingoing stream or flood makes
Dover -0540 (+0010 Cobh) the outgoing stream or ebb
Outside – from the Old Head of Kinsale to Cork Harbour:
Dover +0045 (-0550 Cobh) the east going stream (NE) begins
Dover -0500 (+0050 Cobh) the west going stream (SW) begins
Rate circa 1.2kt springs and at Daunt Rock 0.7kt springs, 0.4kt neaps.
The tidal stream in White Bay is weak.
