According to NOAA’s National Ocean Service, a tidal current is an oceanic current produced by the rise and fall of the tides, driven by the gravitational attraction of the sun and moon on Earth’s oceans.
Tides create a current in the oceans, near the shore, in bays and estuaries along the coast, and are the only type of currents that change in a very regular pattern that can be predicted several days ahead. In bays and harbors, the impact of tidal currents can be crucial, slowing or stopping boats.
MaxSea high resolution tidal currents are produced thanks to data supplied by national hydrographic offices, which guarantee their accuracy and quality.
They cover some zones in Western Europe providing extremely precise information on the strength and direction of tidal currents and thus enabling the optimization and anticipation of sailing conditions.
