Tidal predictions are compiled for standard barometric pressure.

The meteorological conditions that can have an effect are described in meteorological effects on tides.


The times used in the tide predictions have been adjusted to New Zealand Daylight Time when daylight saving is observed.

Types of tide predictions

The map below provides the following tables for different locations:

  • daily tide prediction tables
  • offset/secondary port tide tables.

Daily tide prediction tables provide a listing of the times and heights of high and low waters available for download — view descriptions of the zero points of the predicted tide heights and CSV file format.

Offset/secondary port tide tables provide the time differences and tidal levels that can be used to calculate tide predictions — find out how to do these calculations.


The tide predictions on this website are not official tide tables as specified in Maritime Rules Part 25 Nautical Charts and Publications (pursuant to Section 36 of the Maritime Transport Act 1994).
