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.

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!!

Great app for kayakers

This app is perfect for checking the tide before and during kayaking. A quick glance at the watch gives lots of good info. Multiple sites are easily accessed. The best, as far as I’m concerned. And I got a personal email reply when I asked a question.
