New EasyTide platform launches providing free UK tidal predictions

The UK Hydrographic Office (UKHO) has launched its new ADMIRALTY EasyTide platform, which will provide free tidal information for over 600 UK port locations.

Following extensive research on enhancing its tidal product portfolio, the new ADMIRALTY EasyTide service provides free access to seven-days’ tidal predictions for over 600 UK port locations, displayed as a tide table and tidal curve.

The newly launched website has been redesigned to improve usability across all devices and provides access to the UKHO’s considerable UK tidal database.

The design and usability improvements of the new website will support leisure users and enable safer activities at sea such as watersports, beach going, coastal walking and sailing.

As part of the new transition, Enhanced Predictions will no longer be available. Instead, the UKHO is encouraging customers to explore its wider tidal product portfolio which includes its ADMIRALTY Tidal Prediction Service, UK Tidal APIs, ADMIRALTY TotalTide, and a stock of leisure charts.

The UKHO is the UK’s agency for providing hydrographic and marine geospatial data to mariners and maritime organisations across the world, and is funded by the MoD.
