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 Totland 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.

At the south end of The Needles Channel the stream runs strongly across The Bridge. Adjacent to Alum and Totland and Colwell bays, the flood sets on The Needles and north-western shore of the island, and the ebb on The Shingles, with great velocity. At the entrance to The Solent the currents run largely in the direction of the channel attaining their greatest rates of 4½ knots between Hurst Point and Fort Albert.
Direction of streams are Portsmouth +0520 north-easterly, -0045 south westerly, with the north-easterly tidal flow peaking at 3.7 knots, 5 hours before high water Portsmouth springs and the south-westerly tidal flow at 3.3 knots, 3 hours after high water. Tide off the Needles is slack 1hr 30mins before HW Portsmouth at springs and 45mins at neaps.
The north-easterly stream runs strongly round Alum Bay, Totland Bay and Colwell Bay, but there is little stream in these bays during the south-westerly stream.
