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. Sorry, future tides are not currently available for Dittisham & The River Dart. Please check Admiralty EasyTide.
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.
Sorry, future tides are not currently available for Dittisham & The River Dart. Please use Admiralty EasyTide to predict tide times and heights for the upcoming 7 days. Alternatively use our Christchurch to predict the English Channel's tidal streams, or our Cowes entry for those of The Solent, for up to 18 months in the future.

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.

Dartmouth MHWS 5.5m MHWN 2.2m MLWN 2.2. MLWS 0.8m
Totnes MHWS 3.5 MHWN 2.3. Expect a good 1 metre of tidal rise above what’s on the chart at Totnes at low water + 3hrs.
This tool can be used to estimate future costal tidal streams for this area. All that is required are two simple steps:
Step 1: What is the Dover High Water for the target date?
Use a current Dover Tide Table to find Dover High Water for the target date. The National Oceanography Centre offers online tidal predictions for up to 28 days from today. Click here to open their tide table for Dover
Step 2: Input the target date's Dover High Water
Taking a mean tidal offset from Dover's tide, we expect your targetted date's associated local tide at to be:
High waters: Low waters:
Data based on an average tide is only accurate to within one hour, if you more precise times are required use the ISA tidal predictions, with DARTMOUTH offset -01:00.
Headline: Windy with sunny spells and some heavy showers.
This Evening and Tonight: Showers continuing into the evening and overnight, becoming more persistent and heavier at times, accompanied by strong winds, especially near the coasts. Turning drier for a time overnight with clear spells and staying frost free. Minimum Temperature 4C.
Thursday: Remaining windy with a few, locally heavy, showers and sunny spells during the morning. Turning cloudier with some longer spells of rain and stronger winds possible later. Maximum Temperature 14C.
Outlook for Friday to Sunday: A mixture of sunny spells and blustery showers into the weekend, again potentially heavy and thundery. Often windy though easing on Sunday and turning chillier.
