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 Arklow'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.

Due to an Irish Sea and Arklow Bank tidal oscillation Arklow has a very small tidal range.
Direction of stream outside the harbour

Dover -0215 South going stream at 1 kn (Dublin -1245)
Close inshore off Arklow, the current has a velocity of about l knot. The offshore currents are stronger and begin later.
Around the banks the north going flood tides tend to the Northwest across the banks and the south going ebb tide tends towards the Southeast. This causes the water to ride up and break on the west of the banks on the flood and on the east on the ebb. Close inshore off Arklow the streams run alongside the coast.
The currents inshore between Cahore Point and Wicklow Head set parallel with the coast. The currents set strongly off Wicklow Head at a velocity of about 4 knots in both directions. The north current off the headland forms a weak counter current between the headland and Wicklow Harbour.
