Tide Predictions

Tidal predictions are compiled for standard barometric pressure. The meteorological conditions that can have an effect are described in meteorological effects on tides.

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


Daily tide predictions for many locations are available as annual PDF and CSV files of the times and heights of high and low waters.  The zero points of the predicted tide heights are described here.  The CSV file format is described here.

For other locations a table is provided of time differences and tidal levels that can be used to calculate tide predictions for that location.  Find out how to do these calculations hereDownload the complete Secondary Ports Table (csv 26KB)
