Small tidal stream inaccuracies can develop when advancing beyond HW Dover +6. Because of this we only enable today's tidal stream chartlets to advance 24 hours. Future tidal planning is best accomplished by using Drogheda & The River Boyne's future tides predictor below.
The above image represents the current tidal streams offshore of this haven. Streams attaining three knots and above are highlighted by red arrows . All times are in local time with red text indicating springs, blue indicating neaps and gray between tidal events. Click [+] to advance the estimate by an hour and click [-] to step back. Future tidal planning is best accomplished by using Drogheda & The River Boyne's future tides predictor below.

Arrows represent the direction of tidal streams with lighter or shorter arrows indicating weaker streams. Stronger streams are indicated by heavier or longer arrows, and as mentioned above, red arrows flagging rates of 3 knots and above. Numerals represent [mean neap, mean spring] rates in tenths of a knot. For example the numbers 12,23 would indicate a mean neap of 1.2 knots and a mean spring of 2.3 knots.

We are now on Neaps.
Mean spring range about 4.2 metres; mean neap range about 2.3 metres. Predicted heights of the tide are reduced by northerly winds and raised by southerly winds.

The River Boyne tidal streams are strong for leisure craft and ebb tides may be reinforced by heavy rains. The river is tidal 2.5 miles beyond Drogheda Port as far as Oldbridge. Tidal predictions may be affected by weather conditions particularly easterly winds and high barometric pressure. Prolonged rainfalls may create strong continuous ebb flows of freshwater against a rising tide.
