Amazing app

Ocean Watch is truly a valuable resource to us in the Savannah area. With tide swings of 6-9 feet, the tide is a major consideration in boating. You have to plan your trips very carefully or you might be spending a lot of time sitting around on a sand bar. The extreme accurate times posted on Ocean Watch make it a whole lot easier to plan and have an uneventful trip.

Notifications Don’t Work

The Ocean Watch App itself is beautifully laid out and easy to use. You’re able to choose from graphs, tables and more to see when it’s high or low tide. My only complaint is that I’ve tried to get notifications when it’s high tide in my area multiple times and it doesn’t work. If it would the app would be perfect.

Easy to use, easy to read. Automatically picks a location close to you when you open, but you can customize with your favorite location(s). You can scroll forward to get times/heights in the future. Absolute best app of this type that I have seen - love it!!
