Hi all,

Is there an app or location to find which way the tide flows thru Moreton Bay- especially around islands.

While it's obvious in some areas I'd be keen to know the details around Peel where the 2 channels are closer together heading in opposite directions.

Thanks

Hi Lofty,

Been a while but I think the tide goes in and out :wink: with the depth being higher or lower :roll:

Joking aside I haven't heard of an app and most chart plotters I have seen and used only give simplified flows, if the feature is available at all. I would be surprised if any gave more than averaged heights based on standard formulae, let alone specific tide differentials at a specified point.
