Website with currents shown on chart with arrows

I'm looking for LIS

Old school was Eldridge.
I've got a hand held gps with currents.

I'm thinking it would be handy to go to a website and pick a place and time and have a bunch of arrows with numbers showing the strength of the current.

I can work it out of course with the noaa tables but it seems like it should be available.
I tried sailflow it and shows wind not current.
I tried weatherunderground again wind not current.
The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
