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 Hill Head'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.

Tidal currents are moderate in Southampton Water but very strong in The Solent. The Solent’s tide rises for about six hours and then ‘Stands’, or has a ‘Double High Water’ for a further three hours. Southampton Water havens experience a ‘young flood stand' that is very pronounced on Springs. The ‘young flood stand' begins at approximately LW+0130 where the tidal stream slackens until approximately LW+0300 before a final surge to the three hour ‘Stand’.
