San Juan Tides and Rosario Strait currents
Everyone seems to use Captain Jack’s as their tide table, but as usual, online, there are a zillion resources. “Saltwatertides.com”:http://saltwatertides.com seems to have a really great list. BTW, for Tuesday, it shows high tide at 3:52AM at +6.7 feet and a low tide of -1.1 at 11:39AM, so basically in the AM, there is an ebb tide towards the south in Haro Strait and then after 10:32AM, the tide goes north.
For the corresponding currents, “Mobilegraphics.com”:http://www.mobilegeographics.com/pugetsoundcurrents.html shows that Rosario Straits has a maximum current of -2.5 knots ebbing to the south at 10:32AM and that about 2PM, there is a slack and that the maximum flood is at 4:42PM.
I also like “Sailwx.info”:http://www.sailwx.info/tides/tidemap.phtml?location=5550 which has a nice map of the tides and the stations
