how to set your tide clock
At the exact time of your local high tide install one AA sized battery. If required, adjust the tide hand straight up to the HIGH TIDE (12 o’clock) position using the adjustment wheel.
To find the exact time of your high tide go to this link and click on your area then your town, the current day is highlighted in yellow and the tide times are shown in bold.
If your state is not shown select it from the drop down in the top navigation bar followed by your harbor in the next drop down to the right. Click on the green Tide Chart link and scroll down to see times.
For best results, set to high tide during a full moon or new moon phase.
Coastal tide clocks are designed to be used as an additional instrument to gauge your tides. If an exact tide time is of the essence or if your safety is at risk, please do not rely on this instrument.
