Small tidal stream inaccuracies can develop when advancing beyond HW Portsmouth +6. Because of this we only enable today's tidal stream chartlets to advance 24 hours. Future tidal planning is best accomplished by using Port Solent Marina'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 maximum currents are usually experienced on the ebb when spring rates may reach 5.5 knots in the harbour entrance, about 3 hours and 30 minutes after HW. During maximum ebb little headway can be made at the narrows and it is best to avoid arriving at these times.
There is ¾ of an hour slack in the entrance during the second and third hours of the flood. A counter-current runs along the western edge of the channel just inside the entrance on the flood. The direction of the out-going stream in the entrance to the harbour is towards Hamilton Bank and a specific allowance should be made for this dangerous set.

Coastguard on VHF Channel 16 and this should only be used for distress and urgency calls. Most coastal areas have a good phone signal making it possible to dial 999 or 112 and ask for the coastguard. HM Coastguards Solent area ‘Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre’ MRCC is situated at Lee-on-Solent; MMSI is 002320011. The centre is manned 24x7 and has a rescue helicopter at its disposal. They keep a watch on VHF Ch 16 and also Ch 67 that can be used for routine communications. Solent Coastguard broadcasts a weather forecast on Ch 86 and Ch 23 once an initial announcement has been made on Ch 16.
Whilst operating in the Solent it is advisable to maintain a radio watch on the port working frequency of Channel 12 used by Southampton Vessel Traffic Services (VTS) and shipping. Every 2 hours from 0610-2210 there will be a broadcast on Channel 14, pre-empted by a transmission on Channel 12, giving information on large ship movements, local weather conditions and any new Navigational Warnings.
