Re: Near-shore tide what to expect. "Need some Guidance"

The only place you need to be concerned with tides and their resultant generated CURRENTS is in Rivers, Bays, Inlets, etc. as in the 'ocean' the tide only go 'up' and they go 'down'.

Except for thing called "The Gulf Stream"

I bought a place on Ladies Island and haven't had the chance to explore much beyond Port Royal Sound. The currents in the rivers and sound are significant. The distances you are talking about are pretty close to shore. I'm sure currents would be effected by the volume of water going in and out of the sound. Looking for some charting.
