Hi fellas.
Looking for a tide flow speed/Direction map to share.
I'm sure I saw one here once, but Dr Google can't dig it up.
Can one of you legends remember where or where it is?
Thanks

Ocean or bay?

Tide flow speed varies.

Tide direction stays the same, regardless of the strength.

The Admiralty charts show the tide flow direction in the ocean.

I did google a tide flow chart for WPB the other day, but not sure it was from.
Well past the edge, almost at the point of no return.

In the bay mav.
I'm sure I once saw a map here showing the rough direction and speed of flow in so, but I might be wrong?

Launch Spots! > Westernport Bay > Last Page (oldest post in that thread)

Might be this you're referring to?

Cheers fellas.
My memory is a more detailed map but I might be wrong.
It shows the basics anyway
