Canadian tides and currents on-line

This should be a useful link for those of us cruising Canadian waters in 2011.
It allows you to print just the pages you'd need for all the stations that would apply to your itineraries throughout the year.

CHS - PDF Files

It's a PDF file that prints exactly like the book. The link is for southern BC waters but they are all there.

While the reference ports and stations are available, does anyone know if tables 2-5 for each volume are online somewhere? I use them quite often; I know that they do not change from year to year so I could use an older copy of tides and currents. I would also like to point my students, especially in coastal navigation, to the tables.

Thanks

Jack

Don't have an actual book in front of me, Jack but are you talking about the current and tide correction tables for secondary stations?

There are stations listed on line that do not appear in the book, so the reliance on secondaries is reduced - though I realize that as a teaching issue that doesn't help you. I can't find anything on that site, and I imagine you've looked yourself too...

I prefer this one, same data but different presentation:
CHS-Tides, Currents, and Water Levels
You have to click on the region you want, then a smaller geographic area, then the tide station you want. You can select a weeks worth of tides at a glance and print them for the stations you wish, then take those with you on your trip. I like this presentation better but I also like the tide apps I get on the iPod.

That is good. I could not find it.

Thanks
